MEK Iran: Iranian Regime and Its Proxy Forces in Iraq Attack U.S Embassy

Iran backed militia stormed at the US Embassy in Baghdad, Iraq

Iran backed militia stormed at the US Embassy in Baghdad, Iraq. The attack was orchestrated by terrorists – Abu Mahdi al Muhandis and Qays al-Khazali – and abetted by Iranian proxies – Hadi al Amari and Faleh al-Fayyad. All are seen outside the embassy.

On December 31, 2019, the Newsmax TV interviews Alireza Jafarzahdeh from the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) regarding the attack on the US embassy in Baghdad and the Iranian regime’s role in the attack. Mr. Jafarzadeh in response to a question about the situation in Iraq said:

“What we have seen today in Baghdad is not an isolated act. It comes as a result of a series actions. But in one word, the raid on the US embassy in Baghdad could not have happened without the direct order by the Iranian regime’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and the full operation and cooperation of the Revolutionary Guards. They are the real commanders of the Hashd al-shabi militias whom you saw in uniforms in the video clips. These are the Hashd al-shabi forces, who are nominally operating within the Iraqi government but they get their actual orders from the Iranian regime, from the commander of the Quds Force Qassem Soleimani. And they couldn’t have access to the Green Zone, to that secure area, as you were saying earlier, without the full cooperation of the Iraqi government, who by the way, is a proxy to the Iranian regime,”
“So, in one word, everything you have seen is the operations by the Iranian regime. Now, why the Iranian regime is doing that? Because they are in big trouble. This is an act of desperation because the regime is facing a lot of protests inside Iran by the people of Iran. You saw in November there were protests in some 191 cities. The regime killed over 1,500 people, arrested 12,000 people. And the regime is facing a lot of Iraqi people protesting against its presence and against the very same Shia militias who attacked the embassy in Baghdad. So, that’s why you see the weakness and the desperation of the Iranian regime on display.”

In response to a question about the militias affiliated to the Iranian regime in Iraq and the way Iranian regime had been meddling in Iraq, Mr. Jafarzadeh said:

“In the past few years, Iran’s regime has built a very strong network of support and militias and operations in Iraq because no one was opposing them. They were allowing the Iranian regime to operate in that way. And the belief was that if you appease the Iranian regime, if you befriend them, then eventually things would work out. And the less decisiveness the U S and others displayed towards the Iranian regime, the more eager the regime got, the bolder they got in building their network. Now, what has changed, in the past few months particularly, is that the Shiite majority in Iraq, which used to be under the control of the Iranian regime, has now revolted against its influence in Iraq. Look at the cities of Najaf and Karbala. These are the two holiest wholly Shia sites in the world, and they revolted against the Iranian regime’s influence,”
“They attacked the regime’s presence there in Baghdad. Right now, as we speak, in Tahrir Square there are protesters who are chanting slogans against the Iranian regime. In Basra, the second most populated city in Iraq, again Shia dominated, people are revolting against the Iranian regime. So, you can see, the Iraqi people’s movement against the Iranian regime which parallels what’s happening inside Iran. And that’s why I feel, and that’s why I was mentioning earlier, that the momentum has shifted against the Iranian regime’s influence, against their presence there. You have the popular sentiment of the Iraqi people against the regime and on the side of the Americans, and the same sentiments exists in Iran. And that’s why I think it’s important for us to continue being decisive. It’s good that they targeted the Shia militias in West of Baghdad. But you need to think about the heart of the problem, which is Tehran.”
