Iran's Top Commander Demands Closure Of US Base In Northern Iraq

The chief commander of Iran’s armed forces on Sunday has warned that the American base in northern Iraq must close, accusing the United States of assisting armed opposition groups operating from the Iraqi Kurdistan region. This is the most direct accusation by an Iranian official that US forces stationed in Iraq support armed insurgents against Tehran. Iranian media in the past has hinted that US intelligence is supporting the groups.
General Mohammad Bagheri said Tehran will continue military operations against Kurdish insurgents and warned that “officials of [Iraqi Kurdistan] region and the Iraqi government should take action against these groups.”Bagheri said officials of the Kurdish autonomous region should not allow armed “anti-revolutionaries”, who are “agents of America and the Zionist regime in northern Iraq to have military bases, radio and TV stations and attack our borders.”
