Report: Iran Sends Forces to Fight Islamists in Iraq


Iran has deployed Revolutionary Guards units to Iraq in order to fight the Islamists who have taken over cities there, The Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday, citing Iranian security sources.

The sources said that at least three battalions of the Quds Forces, the elite overseas branch of the Guards, were dispatched to aid in the battle against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS), an offshoot of Al-Qaeda rapidly gaining territory across Iraq.
