Iran has appointed Hossein Al-e Sadeq with links to the terrorist IRGC (Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps) intelligence organization as the new ambassador to neighboring Iraq;
Al-e Sadeq, has served as a deputy to the incumbent ambassador to Baghdad, Iraj Masjedi, a former senior IRGC commander who assumed office in 2017;
Al-e Sadeq is reportedly a former member of the board of directors of the Sepas Veterans Association, which is apparently a nongovernmental organization that commemorates the terrorist IRGC K.I.A, particularly those who held positions in the Revolutionary Guards intelligence organization.
The motto of the organization’s Instagram page is defending Islam does not end with defending the homeland, suggesting that its members are supporters of the terrorist IRGC overseas operations.
Al-e Sadeq speaks Arabic and is the younger brother of renowned Iraqi-Iranian poet and writer Mohammed Reza Al-e Sadeq also known as Mohammed Reza bin Muhammad bin Sadeq al-Najafi. The family seems to have dual Iraq-Iranian roots, which is not uncommon among Shiites. Many Iranians settled in Iraq decades ago, either as clerics or traders.
