TEHRAN (FNA)- A well-informed Afghan official disclosed new military moves and buildups by the US and British military forces in the southwestern Helmand province near the Iranian borders, and said the move is part of a broader plot to pose military threats to Iran.
"Helmand is important to the US and Britain due to its adjacency to Iran and Pakistan. The main goals of these forces are not Helmand or Taliban but to be close to Iran and gain control over Pakistan's border regions,"
"Regarding the details of the British military movements in the region, the official revealed that British base is located in a region called 'Shourabak' and covers an area of 1200 square kilometers.
"There are underground military airfield facilities in the base and aircrafts enter the underground airfield after landing," the source added.
The source further announced that the US forces are building a similar base in a region named 'Garmsir'.
The US has increased its war rhetoric against Iran in recent days, and the US President Barack Obama has threatened to nuke Iran."
