Second Israeli attack on Iranian targets in E. Iraq reported by Iraqi sources

A second Israeli attack in 10 days on Iranian Guards’ and Iraqi militia forces in eastern Iraq was claimed on Sunday, July 28 by Iraqi military sources. They described one or more Israeli Air Force jets striking Camp Ashraf in Diyala Governorate, some 80km from the Iranian border and 40km north of Baghdad. The Iraqi sources reported that the Israeli aircraft struck a consignment of ballistic missile launchers transferred a short time ago from Iran to Iraq. as well as the missiles themselves and the living quarters of Guards officers and personnel of the pro-Iranian Iraqi Badr Brigades militia. Some sources reported up to 40 dead in the attack.

Camp Ashraf is described by DEBKAfile’s military sources as one of the largest military compounds in eastern Iraq, with room to house more than 4,000 troops and their weapons systems. It also holds a big complex of subterranean facilities storing missiles, tanks and heavy artillery. Camp Ashraf is the address of the main base and command headquarters of the Badr Brigades, the largest pro-Iranian militia in Iraq, This militia has become heavily engaged in Tehran’s new drive to transform Iraq into a frontline base of operations.

Israel’s first purported target in Iraq on July 19 was another Badr Brigades facility in eastern Iraq, outside the town of Amerli in the province of Salahudin. That one housed the 52nd Brigade of the Hash Shaab militia.  

On July 24, Israel was reported by the Syrian military to have conducted a surface missile attack – this one to demolish an intelligence station just constructed by the Iranians at Tal al-Harara in southern Syria for a broad overview of northern Israel and parts of the eastern Mediterranean.

If all three Israel attacks are confirmed, it would indicate a radical escalation of its operations against Iran’s new, ongoing initiatives to set up a new front-line military presence in Iraq and southern Syria.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu responded to the successful Arrow 3 tests in Alaska against exo-atmosphere ballistic targets at the Sunday cabinet meeting by saying: “They were successful beyond imagination, Each a perfect hit. This means that Israel could send ballistic missiles into Iran.”

Netanyahu, who also serves as defense minister, did not elaborate on this comment, but it evidently carried a message, that while Israel has the capacity to intercept and destroy the ballistic missiles that Tehran has begun transferring to Iraq and Syria, it has no defense against Israel’s long arm and its ballistic missiles.

          The Worst thing the US did in the middle East was removing Sadism from Power. He kept Iran in Check. I still want to know where ISIS came from and who funded them, it almost seems they were a false flag operation secretly funded by Russia and IRAN for a Power Grab of Everything ISIS Seized but it did not work out.

            Paul Bremer destroyed Iraq, and the dumbest thing he did was disband the Baathist party, and by default, their professional Army, which kept a lid on sectarian violence.
            The Surge held but when Obama announced the DAY and TIME US was leaving, the Hudna was all they needed to deed to the Iranians…..

            More importantly, what would it take to control that base for good purposes, like a Forward Operating Base for Bombers against Iranian targets?

The G-d of Israel is fulfilling his promise, it is His will to bring the Children of Israel back to their homeland, which makes you and your false prophets, enemies of Allah. Look around you, do you see any of your Muslim buddies EVER attaining their goals, just the opposite, the more evil you commit the more you suffer.

    After, WWI many European Nations replaced Monarchys with Democratic Republics especially Czechoslovakia. In 1938, Czech and German Populations ended Czech First Republic via “The Munich Agreement”, by Nazi Germany, United Kingdom, French 3rd Republic, & Kingdom of Italy. Europe Celebrated the Peace Agreement, because it Prevented the War Threatened by Hitler by allowing Nazi Germany’s Annexation of the Sudetenland. Europe Celebrating Iranian Nuke Agreement did not Prevent Iran from ICBMs & Exporting Missile Threats Towards Israel. Today’s Strike is another Warning that Israel won’t Accept another Europe 1938 Peace Failure. Europe Peace Agreement Built on Betrayal that Don’t Last. Today’s IDF Defensive Strike is another Warning to the World of 2019 and Wake Up Call Israel will Oppose Iran Death to Israelis & Never Again even it means “Ourselves Alone”!

    I shouldn’t mention again the strategic error general Salami often does, but this is another one of those times when deploying personal coffins could have save IRGC lives.

    His is sending his Iranian guards people out of Iran completely WITHOUT personal coffins or as a minimum personal Kevlar body-bags. Could you imagine that?

    Where could his Iranian guards find fast a snake hole when the IAF pilots start to look from above to their military base? With a personal coffin handy right under the bed or a body-bag in the rucksack the situation changes a lot. This gives confidence to the troops and it is good for the morale. Plus, it is dual-purpose.
