Mohammad Kazem Al-Sadegh
-The Iranian ambassador in Iraq.
-Former commander at one of the units of Quds Force.
He used to be the first deputy of Iraj Masjedi, the former Iranian ambassador in Iraq, who was also a high ranked commander in Quds Force and IRGC. Both Masjedi and Al-Sadegh were part of the close circle of Qassim Soleimani. This just shows that the USD smugglings through Iraq is extremely important to Quds Force, that’s why it needs to control the position of the ambassador.
This financial network is damaging the Iraqi economy, if only to circumvent sanctions and benefit the IRGC.
