NCRI Factsheet: Widespread Presence of Iranian Regime's IRGC Quds Force in Iraq Under Diplomatic Cover
National Council of Resistance of Iran - October 9, 2019
For the past week, Iraq has been burning in the flames of the protests of a disgruntled population over the poor state of people's livelihoods. A key slogan in the nationwide popular uprising since October 1 has been the call to expel Iran's regime and its agents from Iraq and end the mullahs' meddling in the affairs of this country.
According to the latest news from the Lordegan residents, the Iranian regime has stationed tanks at the entrance of the town, and its agents constantly patrol the area. The regime is frightened of a possible uprising, and officials have warned that the main Iranian opposition group People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI, Mujahedin-e Khalq or MEK) is behind the protests.
The dismal failure of Iranian regime President Hassan Rouhani’s visit to New York for the 2019 United Nations General Assembly can be vividly witnessed in the resulting crises inside the mullahs’ apparatus. Be it a deepening divide within the political hierarchy ruling Iran or escalating doubts in regard to the regime’s strategic policies, a growing number of figures representing both factions of the ruling mullahs are expressing concerns about the road ahead. This is yet another indication of how Rouhani’s NYC visit is backfiring in a troubling manner deep inside Tehran.
