Qods Force agents captured in Iraq

The Long War Journal is reporting the capture of three Iranian Qods Force agents in Iraq.

Iraqi security forces captured three members of Qods Force, Iran's special operations branch, during a raid in Diyala province.

“The three were arrested inside al-Khalis district, north of Baaquba city,” an Iraqi official told Voices of Iraq.

The report goes on to state that "reports of raids and detentions against the Iranian-backed Shia [paramilitary] groups have declined since the start of the New Year after a flurry of activity in 2007 and 2008".
