IRGC-Muslim Brotherhood secret alliance in Turkey against Saudi Arabia

Members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards

The US website (The Intercept) revealed on Monday that the Quds Force of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) held a summit with the Muslim Brotherhood in Turkey in 2014 in an attempt to form secret alliance against Saudi Arabia.

The leaked documents showed that “Turkey hosted in 2014 a summit between the IRGC and the Muslim Brotherhood to confront Saudi Arabia,” and they also discussed forming “secret alliance against it”.

The information contained in the leaked documents also referred that the Brotherhood representative called on the IRGC to work against Saudi Arabia in Yemen by uniting their ranks.

“In Yemen, with the influence of Iran on Houthis and the influence of the Brotherhood on the armed tribal Sunni factions, so there should be a joint effort to decrease the conflict between Houthis and Sunni tribes to be able to use their strength against Saudi Arabia,” the Brotherhood delegation argued.

The leaked archive of secret Iranian intelligence reports obtained by the American news organization provide an interesting glimpse of the 2014 meeting on secret attempts by the Muslim Brotherhood and Iranian officials to maintain contact and determine whether they can still work together, after President Mohamed Morsi was removed from power.

One of the most important things the two sides shared was considering Saudi Arabia “the common enemy” of the Muslim Brotherhood and Iran, The Intercept reported.

The leaked documents, part of which was published by The New York Times, revealed the extent of Iranian penetration in Iraq and Soleimani’s visits to Baghdad in support of Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi, and that Nuri al-Maliki is still the favorite Iraqi figure to Iran.

According to The Intercept, the leaked documents also revealed interesting details, including that the Iranian Interior Ministry, an entity competing with IRGC in the National Security Agency, recruited a secret agent to attend the secret summit.

The secret agent not only conveyed the details of all the interviews and all the points discussed, but also served as “coordinator of this meeting”.

This information exposes the fierce conflict between the poles of the Iranian regime and the mutual espionage between the Ministry of Interior and the Revolutionary Guards.
