(IB TIMES) Iran has deployed an elite unit of its Revolutionary Guard to help the Iraqi government take on ISIS, the Sunni militant group that has seized several areas in the northern part of the country.
Two battalions of the Quds Forces are already making progress in their fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, the Wall Street Journal reported. The militant group took control of Saddam Hussein’s hometown of Tikrit on Wednesday, but Revolutionary Guard and Iraqi troops overtook 85 percent of the city on Thursday, Iraqi and Iranian security forces told the paper.
Iran, which is dominated by Shiites, has close ties to Iraq’s Shiite-led government. Iranian President Hassan Rouhani called ISIS “an extremist, terrorist group that is acting savagely” during an appearance on state television, Al Jazeera reported. “For our part, as the government of the Islamic Republic of Iran … we will combat violence, extremism and terrorism in the region and the world.”
(FEDERALJACK) The Iraqi city for Kirkuk fell to Kurdish militants Thursday, marking the third straight day the military failed to keep a major city in the hands of government forces. Although the fighters that took Kirkuk are not associated with the hardline Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, the incident further showcases an Iraqi government unable to operate effectively in the country. Further complicating the situation is US military hardware used by the Iraqi army falling into the hands of insurgents and being taken across the border into Syria.
