Iran sent ‘small numbers’ of operatives into Iraq: U.S.
Admiral John Kirby: I’ve seen no indication of ground forces or major units
Iran has deployed “small numbers” of operatives into Iraq to bolster the Shiite-led government there but there was no sign of a major deployment of army units, the Pentagon said Friday.
“There are some Iranian revolutionary operatives in Iraq but I’ve seen no indication of ground forces or major units,” spokesman Admiral John Kirby told a news conference, apparently referring to Tehran’s Quds force, the covert arm of the Revolutionary Guard Corps.
