No Iran Army Units in Iraq

Iran has deployed “small numbers” of operatives into Iraq to bolster the Iraqi government but there was no sign of a major deployment of army units, the Pentagon said Friday.
“There are some Iranian revolutionary operatives in Iraq but I’ve seen no indication of ground forces or major units,” spokesman Admiral John Kirby told a news conference, apparently referring to the Qods Force of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC).
Iran says it has provided the Iraqi army with military advice and training to help it in the fight against the so-called Islamic State (IS) terrorist group.
