Iranian Forces Arrested in Iraq

Iran Focus reports:
Baghdad, Apr. 10 - More than 30 armed agents dispatched from Iran were arrested in the eastern Iraqi province of Diyala, according to sources close to the Iranian opposition People’s Mojahedin. Sources said that the 30 agents were mercenaries of the elite Qods (Jerusalem) Force branch of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Corps.

“In one incident six individuals, of which five were Iranian and the other was an Iraqi, were apprehended by the Iraqi National Guard at a checkpoint near Maqdadiya in Iraq’s Diyala province. Those arrested were carrying light arms and RPG rockets, which they intended to use in operations in Diyala”, the opposition source revealed.

One more in a long list of provocations. If we do decide to take action against Iran there will be no lack of justifications.
