London, Sep. 26 – Coalition forces captured an Iraqi national with ties to Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps – Qods Force (IRGC-QF) and detained six other “criminals” during operations early Tuesday in Baghdad, the U.S. military reported.

“Intelligence indicated that this criminal was a Special Groups member who specialised in the movement of weapons throughout Iraq for the terrorist network”, the Multi-National Force – Iraq (MNF-I) said in a statement.

The statement accused the man of having ties with several Special Groups senior leaders as well as contacts with Qods Force members.

“Special Groups members, working with support from Iran, are criminals who jeopardise the security and safety of Iraqi citizens”, said Maj. Brad Leighton, a MNF-I spokesman. “Their IEDs often kill civilians, their mortar rounds often hit residential areas, and they attack from residential areas, placing residents at risk when Iraqi and Coalition security forces defend themselves”.
