No, Israel Did Not Attack Iranian Targets In Iraq
By Moon Of Alabama
August 01, 2019 "Information Clearing House" - Israeli newspaper repeat a report which claims that Israeli planes hit Iranian targets in Iraq.
- Haaretz: In Major Shift, Israel Twice Struck Iranian Targets in Iraq 'Using F-35'
- Ynetnews: Report: Israeli warplanes hit Iranian targets in Iraq
- Jerusalem Post: Report: Israel launched two attacks on Iranian targets in Iraq in July
From the last one:
The IAF used its F-35i stealth fighter jets to hit two Iraqi bases that were used by Iranian forces and proxies and for storing ballistic missiles, the London-based Saudi daily Asharq Al-Awsat reported on Tuesday.
Asharq Al-Awsat is owned by Faisal bin Salman, a member of the Saudi ruling clan. It is - like other Arab papers - often used to launder Israeli disinformation and propaganda that is then repeated in the Israeli press.
The original Asharq Al-Aswat report reads:
Israel has expanded the scope of its Iranian targets in Iraq and Syria, western diplomatic sources told Asharq Al-Awsat amid reports that Tel Aviv carried out an airstrike earlier this month against an Iranian rockets depot northeast of Baghdad.
The July 19 attack was carried out by an Israeli F-35 fighter jet, they added.
On Sunday, the Ashraf base in Iraq, a former base used by the Iranian opposition People's Mujahedin of Iran, was targeted by an air raid, said sources.
The base lies 80 kilometers from the border with Iran and 40 kilometers northeast of Baghdad.
The sources revealed that the strikes targeted Iranian “advisors” and a ballistic missile shipment that had recently arrived from Iran to Iraq.
Last week, Syria’s Tal al-Hara was struck by Israeli jets.
The diplomatic sources said the attack targeted Iran’s attempt to seize control of the strategic hill, located in Daraa countryside in southern Syria.
The above F-35 promotion then goes on to laud the Israeli Arrows-3 air defense missile the U.S. paid for.
