WASHINGTON  - Iraqi assassination squads are being trained in Iran by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Quds Force and Lebanese Hezbollah for attacks on specific Iraqis, a US military official said Friday. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the Shia "special groups" were being trained in Qom, Tehran, Mashad and Ahvaz in assassination and bombing techniques. "We have intelligence reports confirming Iranian-sponsored groups are planning to return back to Iraq and are targeting specific coalition forces, ISF (Iraqi Security Forces) and Iraqi citizens," the official said. The official said the information has been turned over to the Iraqi government "and they are taking the lead in handling the situation," said the official, who spoke from Iraq.
