The US military in Iraq said today that it will free nine Iranians detained in Iraq. They include the five officials detained during a raid in Erbil last January.
US Rear Admiral Gregory Smith said the nine individuals have no “continuing value” for US military.
It is not known whether Mahmoud Farhadi who was detained last September in Sulaymaniyah will be among the nine. US military has accused Farhadi of being a high ranking IRGC-Quds Force officer involved in smuggling explosives into Iraq.
