London, Sep. 05 – Coalition troops arrested on Wednesday a “highly-sought” individual suspected of being an affiliate of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps – Qods Force (IRGC-QF) during a sting operation, the U.S. military announced.

The suspect was detained during a pre-dawn raid in the holy city of Karbala, the Multi-National Force – Iraq (MNF-I) said in a statement.

“The detained individual is suspected of coordinating with high-level IRGC-QF officers for the transportation of multiple Iraqis to Iran for terrorist training at IRGC-QF training camps. He is also a known logistics facilitator providing lethal aid to terrorists operating in central Baghdad”, the MNF-I said.

“It is likely that the affiliate is closely linked to individuals at the highest levels of the IRGC-QF. Coalition forces are still assessing his possible connection to the Special Groups”, it added.

“As Iran continues its proxy war against the people of Iraq, Coalition forces will continue to build on recent operations to disrupt the flow of illicit, lethal materials from Iran into Iraq”, said Lt. Col. Christopher Garver, an MNF-I spokesman. “The capture of individuals affiliated with the IRGC-Quds Force is an integral part of dismantling terror networks that seek to kill innocent Iraqis and security forces”.

The MNF-I said that intelligence derived from other security detainees had led Coalition forces to the residence of the detained individual.

“Ground troops confiscated computer equipment, communication devices, miscellaneous documents and photographs. It is believed that the captured documents may lead to information on other IRGC-QF illicit activities intended to disrupt security operations in Iraq”, it added.
