US Accuse Iran Envoy of Quds Membership

The US military commander in Iraq, Gen. David Petraeus said today Hassan Kazemi Qomi, Iran’s ambassador in Baghdad, is a member of IRGC’s Quds Force. Gen. Petraeus added that Qomi’s diplomatic immunity prevents US to take any action against him.

The US military arrested an Iranian national, Mahmoud Farhadi, in Iraqi Kurdistan nearly three weeks ago. The military accuses Farhadi of being a high-ranking officer in the Quds Force. Gen. Petreaus did not reveal if the information on Qomi’s membership in the Quds Force was provided by Farhadi.

Gen. Petraeus accused the Quds Force of “malign, lethal involvement and activities” in Iraq.
