This is a very misleading and dangerous narrative by Iranian dictatorship apologists like Trita Parsi. Here is why:
This insurgent group(Ansar_Al-Furqan) was established in 2013 by the IRGC to confront Balouchi movement and fought alongside IRGC against Jundallah.
1/18
Ansar-al-Furqan's ideology is Muslim Brotherhood.This group is close to Jabhat-al-Nusra front [and Taliban] motivated by Muslim Brotherhood ideology. This is why Jabhat-al-Nusra has good relations with Turkey and "Qatar gave this group $64.2B between 2010 and 2015." 2/18
Four years after its establishment by the IRGC, Ansar_Al-Furqan's significant part led by Jalil Qanbarzehi rejected working for Iran. However, this wasn't accepted by the IRGC and an operation was conducted in June 2017 to destroy the group. 3/18
