Iran Contributes to the Fight Against ISIS

Iran, which holds tremendous influence over the Shiite-led government of Iraq, has advised Iraq as the country battled ISIS, the radical militant group that has sought to implement an Islamic state in northern Iraq and Syria. Qassim Suleimani, head of the Quds Force of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, traveled to Baghdad to help Maliki and military leaders plan a response to the ISIS advance. Iran has regularly sent military supplies to Iraq and launched airstrikes targeted at ISIS militants in western Iraq.
