A government web site in Iran quoted on Monday a top Revolutionary Guards commander as saying that the country is supplying weapons to "liberation armies" in the Middle East. The report by Borna news provides the first official statement from a top military commander that Iran is providing weapons to armed groups in the Middle East. Monday's report quotes Gen. Hossein Hamedani, deputy commander of a volunteer militia that is part of the elite Revolutionary Guards, as saying Iran is self-sufficient in weapons production and is supplying arms to "liberation armies" in the region.
