Iraqi Shiite militia leader declines to name who attacked its bases

Fateh al-Fayyadh, head of Iraq’s main Iran-backed Iraqi Shiite force,  Thursday contradicted a statement by his deputy, Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, which attributed recent attacks on militia bases to “Israeli drones” and “US responsibility.” Fayyadh stressed that Muhandis’ statements did not represent the view of the Popular Mobilization Forces (PMU) or the Iraqi government. The attacks over the past weeks, he said, “were the result of an act organized by a foreign side” which he did not name.

    as i have said before, these attacks could also possibly be from ISIS and not from Israel. The Israeli drones do not have the range to get there and they fly too slowly. One RPG penetrating the warehouse wall can ignite a missile motor and all the others will follow. they are packed tightly, one next to the other.
