Close to 60 British marines were seen patrolling near the Iranian border of Shalamcheh in groups of 20, carrying light weapons and with the apparent intention of monitoring the condition of the sealed border crossing," sources who spoke on the condition of anonymity told Press TV. These British units are deployed along the Iraqi border with Iran, using Apache helicopters, the sources said. Over 300 American and British forces are currently stationed some 10 km from the Iranian border of Shalamcheh in the Iraqi town of Tanumeh. Members of the terrorist group, the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO), have reportedly been sighted among them in American [type] uniforms.
The Iranians are reporting observations of Coalition military movements at their border, with references to physical ties with a terrorist organization known as the MKO. This could be a ratcheting up of an information war, coming on the heels of Iran's disclosure of terrorism as the cause of the recent Shiraz mosque bombing. It also comes during a time of US accusation that Iran is directly involved in arming and training Iraqi Shia militias for fighting inside Iraq.
