The senior advisor of Qassem Soleimani, head of IRGC Qods Force, Brig. Gen. Iraj Masjedi, will soon be nominated as new Ambassador of Iran in Iraq. He will replace Hassan Danaeifar, also him a member of the Qods Force. In January 2015, Iraj Masjedi said that “Iran must try to increase its military power in the West Bank as well as the Gaza Strip” and advising the Palestinian organizations “to stop negotiating with Israelis and instead, engage in armed resistance against the Tel Aviv regime”. In December 2016, speaking about Iraq, Iraj Masjedi said that the establishment of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) is an extension of Iran’s plan to export the revolution, which keeps war against Sunni extremists from reaching the country’s borders, argued Brigadier General Iraj Masjedi, senior adviser to the commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Qods Force (Long War Journal). For the moment, the Iranian Foreign Ministry did not confirmed officially the nomination of Iraj Masjedi.
