Israel Concerned with Decreasing US Military Involvement in Iraq

The two researchers that wrote the assessment, Dr. Ardavan Khoshnood and Efran Fard , say that by expelling all remaining US forces from Iraq, Iran will be in full control of the country, which would represent a major political and security victory for the Islamic regime. Iran has shown itself to have the upper hand in Iraq. This was apparent as long ago as 2005, when American troops lost control over the country. The CIA has said that most terrorist groups and militias in Iraq are under the control of the IRGC-QF.
