BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 A.M.) – The leader of Iraq’s National Coalition, Ayad Allawi, stated this past weekend that an Israeli intelligence agency provided the U.S. with photos of Iranian ballistic missile launchers aimed at Israel.

During his interview with Al-Sharqiya TV, Allawi said Iranian ballistic launchers in Syria (area not specified) and Iraq (Basra) were pointed at not only Israel, but also, some of the Gulf States.

Allawi said he received this information after meeting with a U.S. official in Jordan. The U.S. official told him that these missiles were the reason Secretary of State Mike Pompeo canceled his visit to Germany in favor of traveling to Baghdad to meet with the Iraqi government.

The former Iraqi Vice President said that the U.S. officials “assured him” that the Israeli intelligence agencies were “closely monitoring Iranian ballistic missile systems” not only via satellite but also with “advanced ground systems for imaging and surveillance.”

Neither the U.S. nor Israel have corroborated Allawi’s claims regarding the Iranian ballistic launchers.

Prior to Allawi’s comments, U.S. national security adviser John Bolton alleged that Iran was planning to attack the American forces in the Middle East. Bolton then announced that the U.S. aircraft carrier, the USS Abraham Lincoln, was heading the Persian Gulf to send a message to Iran.

Since this announcement by Bolton, tensions have remained high in the Persian Gulf, with the U.S. and their allies placing their armed forces on high alert.

Iran has denied they have any such plans, adding that they are not looking to start a war with the U.S.

Iran should try Ali Khamenei for treason and embezzlement, and actually, his whole regime…
Hopefully, won’t happen : those who won’t be killed by air-strikes will be lynched by Iranian population.

Iran needs to buy some desert brown paint for their white missile trucks or they are sitting ducks. Who would color their truck white? making them obvious targets.

Iraqi PM is in power because Of US Israeli backing or Saddam and Ísis forces will never let a puppet in power.

Sure iran never attack US or Israel but Iraqi PM trying to fool public and his shitty soldiers same like his iranian Boss Khameni does.

irani khameni chants “Death to Israel” but his missiles guns only kill Syrian Iraqis people. Specially Muslims populated areas schools and hospitals are targets of iranian missiles. Not zionist state or US at all.

This Media, US Israeli pupet Iraqi PM and irani khameni. They all are liers Deceivers.

“No no isis alnusrah are zionists not Muslims” => ISIS behaves EXACTLY like the “army of Muhammad” which stole Syria from the Syriac Christians in 636AD. They did a freaking massacre of civilians in the fields around Aleppo, BTW “but hamas Hezbullah are Muslims” => Hamas OPENLY supports al-Nusra… And until al-Julani wanted the power over Syria and so joined Qaeda, al-Nusra was the Syrian branch of? ISIS. Al-Julani was one of the closest aides do al-Baghdadi. Why do you think Assad expelled the the leader of Hamas Khalid Mashal in 2012? Hamas is OFFICIALLY part of the Ikhwan (Muslim… Read more »
