NCRI Staff

NCRI - The following press release, made on October 24, 2017. Was released by the office of Mr. Struan Stevenson the President of the European Iraqi Freedom Association (EIFA).

The interference of the Iranian terrorist commander Qasem Soleimani in the internal affairs of Iraq has reached scandalous proportions that should sound alarm bells in the West. It has now emerged that the General, who commands the terrorist Quds Force, responsible for foreign operations by Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), orchestrated the re-occupation of the oil-rich city of Kirkuk and many other Kurdish regions in Northern Iraq. Kirkuk and other disputed areas bordering Kurdistan had been held by the Iraqi Kurds for the past two years after the Kurdish Peshmerga military force successfully ousted Daesh. The Americans recently listed the IRGC as an international terrorist organisation; the Quds Force has been on terrorist blacklists for years.

“Slapping sanctions on IRGC is not something new. Mr. Trump needs to know that Iranian people don’t like the Revolutionary Guards for their economic activities, but they demand IRGC to maintain Iran’s security and independence”, says Hassan Rouhani’s advisor ‘Hesameddin Ashena’ in an attempt to counter the psychological effects of the new sanctions.
