Baghdad, May 05 – Some 30 individuals arrested in the Iraqi province of Diyala have admitted to acting on the orders of Iran’s notorious Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) to spur sectarian violence to destabilise the region, according to a senior Iraqi police official.

Colonel Ali Esmaeil, the head of the investigative unit of Diyala police force, made the comments, while adding that the 30 individuals were from the town of Baladruz, the Iraqi weekly Al’Ittijahol-Akhar reported.

Esmaeil announced that the individuals admitted after police interrogation that they were working for the Iranian regime’s MOIS by sparking religious and sectarian friction so as to undermine security in the region.

“According to admissions by police personnel, those arrested were former Prisoners of War in Iran, and the Iranian regime requested them to start sectarian fighting and attempt to kill a number of Iraqi social personalities, as planned by the Iranian Ministry of Intelligence”, the weekly wrote.

In April, more than 30 armed agents dispatched from Iran were arrested in the eastern Iraqi province of Diyala, according to sources close to the Iranian opposition People’s Mojahedin.

The sources said that the 30 agents were mercenaries of the elite Qods (Jerusalem) Force branch of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Corps.

“In one incident six individuals, of which five were Iranian and the other was an Iraqi, were apprehended by the Iraqi National Guard at a checkpoint near Maqdadiya in Iraq’s Diyala province. Those arrested were carrying light arms and RPG rockets, which they intended to use in operations in Diyala”, the opposition source revealed.
