Posted on 04/16/2006 1:39:31 PM PDT London -- Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps has set up a new terrorist training camp in Eastern Iraq, according to a commander of Iraq's border police.

The Iraqi officer told the National Iraqi News Agency that the camp was situated 2.5 kilometres from the Iran-Iraq border in the Iraqi province of Diyala.

The IRGC has been holding training courses lasting two weeks at the camp for its Iraqi mercenaries to carry out assassinations of Sunni Iraqis, especially those who held officer ranks in the Iraqi army during the reign of Saddam Hussein, the officer said. He did not reveal his name for fear of reprisals by Iraqi security officers who owe their allegiance to the Islamic Republic. Iranian-backed Shiite radicals of the Supreme Council for Islamic Revolution in Iraq (SCIRI) form the backbone of security services in the war-torn nation.

Iraqi border patrols in Diyala have been put on a heightened state of alert and have begun to carry out extensive security sweeps close at the border stretch.

IRGC officers are believed to be entering Iraqi illegally between the border towns of Qazanieh and Naft-Abad.
