Iran Arming Militias.
US Ambassador to Iraq Zalmay Khalilzad on Aug. 11 said Iran had been encouraging small Shi'ite militias to attack US-led forces in retaliation for American backing of Israel's military campaign against Hizbullah in Lebanon. Iran, governed by Persians heading a Shi'ite theocracy, supports Hizbullah, the Lebanese Shi'ite militia which has just waged a war against Israel (see news8-LebME-Aug21-06).
