London, Oct. 19 – An Iranian-backed militia group which has penetrated key positions in the Iraqi Interior Ministry has been ordered to assassinate Iraqi Sunni Muslim activists, Iraqi media reported.

Iran had prepared to launch a large intelligence operation aimed at eliminating secular and Sunni activists in Iraq, the al-Molf Net website wrote, adding that armed groups with ties to Tehran have been ordered to “assassinate the more influential and active Sunni Arab activists in Iraq”.

A “central body” responsible for the assassinations has been set up in the Iraqi Interior Ministry, the report said. The body is run by a committee of several pro-Iranian Badr Brigade commanders including Hadi Al-Ameri, Abu-Montazer Al-Husseini, Abu-Zolfaqar Hassan, Abu-Hosham Ahmadi, Haj Abu-Nour, and Ahmad Al-Jaberi, as well as a representative from the elite Qods Force, responsible for extra-territorial activities of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC).

The report added that the IRGC representative reported the committee’s meetings directly to Tehran.

Separately, the Iraqi daily al-Rai-ol-Am wrote that following the approval by Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and Iran’s Supreme National Security Council, a military industry team called “the Iron Group for production of arms and equipment”, which is affiliated with the IRGC, had been assigned to “manufacture single-barrel Katiyusha rockets, 107-mm rockets and various special bombs”.

The Iraqi al-Qad website also reported that Iran’s Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) had fully established itself in the southern Iraqi province of Basra.

Al-Qad said that Iranian agents had reached key positions in Basra’s provincial and city councils. “In the absence of an administration, the militias have organised themselves with the support and funding of Muslim neighbour Iran and under the supervision of its Revolutionary Guards and Intelligence Ministry”.
