Qassem Soleimani and Iranian leaders expressing concern regarding Iran's increasingly threatening behavior in Iraq. Soleimani, who is the commander of foreign operations for Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards, refused to open the letter, according to Pompeo, who took over the CIA in January.Reuters reported in October that Soleimani had repeatedly warned Kurdish leaders in northern Iraq to withdraw from the oil city of Kirkuk or face an onslaught by Iraqi forces and allied Iranian-backed fighters, and had traveled to Iraq's Kurdistan region to meet Kurdish leaders.
