Tehran sources: An Israeli Harop drone attacked pro-Iranian Iraqi militia base NE of Baghdad

Iranian and Iraq intelligence sources claim an Israeli Harop UAV carried out the attack on the 52nd Brigade of the Hashd Shaabi militia on Friday, July 19. The attack struck the militia at a Badr Brigades camp outside Amerli town in the Salahudin Province northeast of Baghdad. The sources identify the fragments gathered at the site as belonging to the IAF’s Harop, a loitering combat unmanned vehicle, itself a flying bomb, developed by Israel’s Aerospace Industries. This drone is a stealth munition that can loiter for up to six hours before homing in on a target. It has a range of 1,000km. The Badr camp is about 900km from Israel.

Some Russian aviation websites also speculated on Sunday that Israel was responsible for the attack.
According to Iranian Revolutionary Guards, there were no casualties – in denial of  local accounts of deaths among Iranian and Hizballah officers.

If the Iranian and Iraqi claim is confirmed, it would represent three groundbreaking events:

  1. The Israeli Air Force’s first known attack on an Iranian target using a Harop UCAV.
  2. The first Israeli attack deep inside Iraq not far from its border with Iran.
  3. The Israeli minister Tzachi Hnegbi’s blunt remark on Sunday, that in the past two years Israel has caused Iranian military deaths in both overt and covert operations, may have betrayed some impatience with the Trump administration’s policy of military restraint against Iran, including Tehran’s threat to Gulf shipping. In certain circles, Washington’s restraint is seen as exposing Israel to bolder Iranian aggression.
    Israel has repeatedly put Tehran on notice that its plans to use Iraq as a launching pad for attacks on Israel would not be tolerated.

    Someone will blink. Everyone is waiting! Iranians are top bluffers and should be respected but the moral ground is held by Israel. After all, Israel is fighting for survival and Iran is fighting for hegemony (power and control). In historical terms, those with moral grounds prevail over power-hungry.

    But the fight will not be easy as Iran trenched in for the regime survival at the cost of its own people and the region at large. Every move should be calculated as Iran will exploit any weakness. The best-case scenario revolution from the inside by the people. The worst-case the Middle East on the fire, the world economy collapsed, and everyone blames Israel and Jews as the scapegoats. But in reality, it is the world community who allowed Iran to get outside of it is place in the world.

      @Rahim,

      Sadly, although a worst case scenario, that first thought has the potential to become reality but your conclusion in that second sentence is all too true resulting from too many people never learning from history……………………at the expense of someone else!

          @Zg,

          Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq, Libya, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and all of the other Gulf States don’t want them back since they left those places during the 7th century to seize land which didn’t belong to them during the Muslim conquests.

        Yes, Israel holds the more moral ground because they are fighting those who try to do this list of activities. These morals are not for sell; they were given to us by the Creator of the World. Thanks for asking the question. It is a good one.

    Do note that Turkey and other countries have the Harop in their inventory. This means that identification of the munition as being a Harop does not conclusively prove that it was an Israeli attack.

    What a bunch of lies about Israel. Where do you get your warped information. Israel is not Illegal Occupying, they won a war and the enemy still doesn’t want to agree to make peace when they should be begging for it. “Illegal Killing of Innocent Women & Children” is only being done by Israel’s enemies. Palestinian savages stab babies in their cribs and shoot unarmed pregnant women in their bellies. “Indiscriminate killing of Civilians!” – this is done or attempted by the savage Arabs every time they fire a missile indiscriminately into areas where innocent civilians live or fly kites loaded with incendiary devices. Israel is the only player that takes morality into account in all its’ actions. Absolutely, Israel has the high moral ground.
