On January 12 2015 the Islamic State Group captured and assassinated Iranian officers and soldiers operating inside of Iraq. Among those killed was Mehdi Nayrosi, commander of Al-Quds force special operations of Iran's Revolutionary Guard, and Iranian general Hamid Taghavi, killed in Samarra during the last week of December 2014. In commemoration of officers killed, their names and faces spread throughout the streets and squares of Tehran. While acknowledging the crimes and atrocities committed by the Islamic State group, the world continuously turns a blind eye to the Iranian military presence in Iraq. Sources in Tehran state the numbers have reached a staggering 555.
Iraq must be returned to Iraqis !!
