The Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) has played a significant role in retaking Aleppo, a report by an Iranian opposition group said.

“The forces that occupied Aleppo were actually the IRGC and foreign mercenaries under their command," Middle East Eye quoted Shahin Gobadi, a member of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), as saying in a video conference widely circulated on Wednesday.

Gobadi identified the Lebanese Hezbollah, Iraqi militias, the Afghan Fatimiyoun militias and the Pakistani Zeynabiyoun militias as the main forces under IRGC command in Aleppo.

The NCRI is part of the People’s Mujahiden of Iran or MEK, the largest opposition group to the Iranian government. 

The MEK relied on its network of spies inside the government and IRGC to paint a picture of Iran’s deep military involvement in the Syrian conflict.
