MESOP : TEHRAN’S DARKEST AGENT BEHIND IT ? – Qasem Soleimani Influence Provokes IS Attacks on Kurds

30.08.2014 – Nuwar Faqie – BasNews, Erbil – An Iranian News Website has claimed that Iranian Commander of Quds Forces, Qasem Suleimani, has caused Islamic State (IS) attacks on Kurds.According to the Center for Strategic Studies, Iran’s Nuclear Program (Irannuc) and Soleimani’s major role in Iraq has led IS militants to attack Kurds. Iranian analysts praise the role of Soleimani and state that he has an official decision making role in the government of Iran. An expert in Iran’s Nuclear Program Department claims that the rumors of Soleimani having been relieved from his position is just propaganda perpetuated by both Israel and the US. The expert added that this ‘dream’ will never be realized.  

Another source has pointed out that Soleimani has been able to control the crisis in Iraq as well as helping Iraqi PM Nouri al-Maliki to stay in power for eight years. He has been able to foster good relations with Iraqi High Shiite Clerics and now, due to his efforts, Haidar Abadi has been appointed to the position of Iraqi PM. The source went on to claim that the formation of a new political party in the Iraqi parliament by Ibrahim Jaafari, the head of Shiite National Alliance list, was due to the influence of Soleimani. The quoted expert from Iran’s Nuclear Program says the creep of Kurds into the fight against IS has been down to efforts made by Soleimani.
