Iran's general in Iraq, militants seize key city

Published: 06.17.14, 01:00 / Israel News

In a sign of Iran's deepening involvement in the Iraqi crisis, the commander of Tehran's elite Quds Force is helping Iraq's military and Shiite militias gear up to fight the Sunni insurgents advancing across the country, officials said Monday.

 

Washington signaled a new willingness work with Iran to help the Iraqi government stave off the insurgency after years of trying to limit Tehran's influence in Baghdad – a dramatic shift that would have been unthinkable a few weeks ago. (AP)
