The agency noted that Gen. Norouzi, a member of Basij forces, has fought several times in Syria before going to Iraq .. Drawing attention to that he served as the Commander Special Operations who leads militia groups of the Badr Organization.



In a new confirmation of the presence of Iranian fighters in Iraq, Iranian News Agency (IRNA) has revealed the killing of Gen. Mehdi Norouzi, the commander of a commando force belonging to Iran's Al Quds Brigades of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard early Monday, Jan. 12, in an attack took place at Hashimiyah, a small town 125 km north of Baghdad, which refutes allegations of officials in the current government that Iran's role is advisory only.
 
News-reports quoted sources from IRNA as saying in a story published Monday that "Gen. Norouzi was killed by a direct shot while taking part in fierce clashes erupted on Saturday between Iraqi government troops and members of the popular mobilization on one hand and the insurgents on the other hand in the Hashimiyah town of Samarra to the north of Baghdad."
 
The agency noted that Gen. Norouzi, a member of Basij forces, has fought several times in Syria before going to Iraq .. Drawing attention to that he served as the Commander Special Operations who leads militia groups of the Badr Organization.
 
Last week, a sniper took down Brig. Gen. Hamid Taghavi at his command post in Samarra, central Iraq. Tehran tried claiming he was only a military adviser attached to the Iraqi army. However, his real mission was far more active: commanding officer of the Iranian and Iraqi Shiite militias and the Revolutionary Guards forces fighting militants in the central region of Iraq.
 
The late Gen. Norouzi no sooner arrived to take over from Taghavi when he too was taken down.
 
The demise of Gen. Norouzi was the second painful blow received by Iran after the bane of Brig. Gen. Hamid Taghavi at his command post in Samarra, as well.
 
Earlier this week, the Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey made a flattery on the Iran metastasis inside Iraq by announcing that his country was not worried about the expanding Iranian military operation there, as well as, the deepening military cooperation and coordination between Washington and Tehran in that country, especially the close consultations between their officers in Iraqi battle arenas.
 
Dempsey made a point of defending Washington’s position, telling reporters at the Pentagon in Washington on Jan 8: “If it is a path that ties the two countries [Iraq and Iran] more closely together economically and even politically, as long as Tehran does not intimidate our troops there and the Iraqi government remains committed to inclusivity of all the various groups inside the country, then I think Iranian influence will be positive."    
 
It worth mentioning that US-Iranian cooperation in the war on Iraq is in full swing between the US officers and troops posted there and the headquarters of Iranian Al Quds Brigades Commander, Gen. Qassem Soleimani. Iraq’s Shiite Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi provides liaison. So closely are the two forces aligned, that no Iran-backed militia operation goes forward without first being cleared with the US command.
