The Iranian regime has deployed “small numbers” of operatives into Iraq to help Nouri al-Maliki but there was no sign of a major deployment of army units, the Pentagon said on 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 terrorist Quds force of the Iranian regime Revolutionary Guards Corp (IRGC).
The Pentagon offered no further details on the nature of the Iranians regime's presence or operations, amid media reports that Tehran had launched a concerted effort to save Maliki.
