Iran sent 'small numbers' of operatives into Iraq: US

Pentagon Press Secretary Rear Adm. John Kirby speaks to reporters on April 29, 2014Iran has sent “small numbers” of operatives into Iraq to bolster the Shiite-led government in Baghdad, but there is no sign of a large deployment of army units, the Pentagon said Friday. The comments by spokesman Admiral John Kirby marked the US government’s first public confirmation that Iranian operatives had crossed into Iraq, where the Baghdad government is struggling to counter the swift advance of Sunni extremists. “There are some Iranian revolutionary operatives in Iraq but I’ve seen no indication of ground forces or major units,” Kirby told a news conference, apparently referring to Tehran’s Quds force, the covert arm of the Revolutionary Guard Corps.
