London, 22 Dec - A report by an Iranian opposition group provides information that the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) were a significant force that helped retake Aleppo from rebel fighters.

Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), Shahin Gobadi, spoke in a video conference widely circulated on Wednesday. The video seems to be a follow-up to a report collated by the MEK and released to The Washington Times on Tuesday.

“The forces that occupied Aleppo were actually the IRGC and foreign mercenaries under their command," said Gobadi, who identified the Lebanese Hezbollah, Iraqi militias, the Afghan Fatimiyoun militias and the Pakistani Zeynabiyoun militias as the main forces under IRGC command in Aleppo.

He was clearly in violation of a United Nations travel ban that was to be enforced under the auspices of the nuclear deal, according to multiple sources and photographs.

Iranian Quds Force Commander Qasem Soleimani, according to an article by Adam Kredo published on December 19 by The Washington Free Beacon, was touring Aleppo in a demonstration of Iran’s waxing influence in Syria and in complete disregard for international resolutions barring such behavior, as Soleimani’s presence in Syria is a direct violation of the United Nations resolution governing the nuclear deal.
