NATO seizes Iranian arms bound for Taliban

NATO forces have seized the most powerful rockets ever delivered from Iran to the Taliban, an intelligence officer told al-AP on Wednesday.
NATO troops captured a three-truck convoy carrying 50 122 millimeter rockets in Southern Nirmuz, near the Iranian and Pakistani borders, the official said.
The Associate Press reported rockets are capable of being fired up to 13 miles away from the target, and have an 80 foot explosion, a figure double that of what was previous provided to the Taliban from Iran since 2006, the official said.

by the way, I think the size of those rockets (122mm), "The most powerful evah", are the same size Grad rockets hitting Israel on a quite normal basis.
