TEHRAN: Iranian television published a rare picture on Monday of its elite Quds Force chief in Iraq that was widely circulated online.

The image of Major General Qassem Suleimani purportedly showing him on an Iraqi battlefield was published on the website of IRINN state television, and repeatedly shared on Twitter.

Grinning widely, Suleimani was seen standing alongside Kurdish peshmerga fighters.

IRINN did not say where the picture was taken.

Iran initially denied Suleimani was in Iraq, but several pictures used in official media have appeared to confirm his presence near battles against militants from the ISIS.
