BASNEWS _Iranian Special Forces, known as the “Quds Force,” has opened a private center in Iran to register those soldiers who have been sent to Iraq to help combat the ISIS incursion.
Iran has reportedly started sending troops in to Iraq earlier this week after extremist group Islamic State in Iraq and Sham (ISIS) took over much of the area of Northern Iraq, including the Nineveh and Salahaddin Provinces. These provinces are centers of Iraqi Sunni resistant against Iraqi Shiite-led government.
The Iranian force was deployed to fight as ISIS militants crept ever closer to the Iraqi capital of Baghdad.
The head of the registration center, Muhammad Reza Zumurdy, revealed that the center is called ‘People’s Organization for Shiites Protection’; he says that the fight against ISIS militants in Iraq can be named the ‘fight against expansion’ operation, based on the desire to prevent ISIS forces from taking control of even more Sunni areas in Iraq.
According to local Iranian media, the Commander of the Iranian Quds Force, Qassem Suleimani, visited Iraq recently along with 76 other military officials. He also met with Zumurdy, who supervises the Iraqi army.
