Hundreds of Taliban fighters from Afghanistan are receiving advanced training at military academies in Iran as part of a significant escalation of support by Iran for the insurgents, Taliban and Afghan officials have told The Times. A political adviser to the Taliban at its headquarters in Pakistan said: "The Iranian offer of training came with two demands: that we should put more focus on attacking American and NATO interests in Afghanistan, and devote more forces to attacking" ISIS.
    Senior Afghan military officials have warned that, with new American sanctions looming, Iran is preparing to target U.S. interests in Afghanistan. In recent years, the Quds Force of Iran's Revolutionary Guards has offered ever-greater support to the Taliban.
