"On 1 December 2006 a report [leaked from the Iraq war logs] says that a named commander from the Mahdi army of Moqtada al-Sadr, the main Shia leader of resistance to the occupation [in Iraq], met Iranian officials–reported to be from the Revolutionary Guard Corps–at an unofficial border crossing at al-Shib to pick up three shipments of rockets. Each shipment had six crates with six rockets in each one. They were transferred into a Toyota Landcruiser and driven to his home."
