KABUL – Iranian companies are paying militants in Afghanistan to kill American soldiers, according to a report in London’s Sunday Times. The report carried by Fox News says that at least five Iranian companies in Afghanistan's capital are using their offices as channels to pay Taliban militants in provinces near Kabul.

The offices were set up in the past six months specifically to provide cash for a network of district Taliban treasurers to pay battlefield expenses and bonuses for inflicting as much damage as possible on American forces, Fox reported.

In Iran, these companies compete for contracts to supply materials and logistics to Afghans involved in reconstruction. The money often comes in the form of aid from foreign donors. But that’s just the front, according to Afghan intelligence sources who talked to The Times.

Western officials believe the network may have been set up by the al-Quds force, an elite branch of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard. Iran is paying bonuses of $1,000 for killing an American soldier and $6,000 for destroying a U.S. military vehicle.
