BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:45 P.M.) – The Chief-of-Staff for the Israeli Armed Forces, Aviv Kochavi, said on Wednesday that Israel cannot allow Iran to station militarily in Iraq.

According to Ynet News, Kochavi stated on the seventh anniversary of the death of the former Chief-of-Staff, Amnon Lipkin Shahak, that the Israeli army would not allow Iran to be stationed in Iraq

“The Quds Force of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards in Iraq … transfer advanced weapons there monthly. We cannot leave this situation without interference.”

Furthermore Kochavi said that “there is an opportunity in the Gaza Strip, after the results of the ‘Black Belt’ operation, to develop a secure reality and make it more stable.”

“In the coming war, we will have to attack with great force in populated areas and also target the state structure or the entity that allows terrorism to act against us,” Kochavi continued.

The Israeli military official said that “in the coming war with Lebanon or with Hamas, the internal front in Israel will be subject to major rocket attacks, most of which are inaccurate, but will have an impact,” adding that “Israel will target everything that helps in combat operations, such as electricity, fuel, bridges, if the state of Lebanon, Syria or Hamas and others allow terrorism from its lands to be used against us. ”

Israel has accused Iran of transferring long-range weapons and missiles to Iraq, and from there to Syria and Hezbollah in Lebanon.

The Popular Mobilization Units (Hashd Al-Shaabi) came under attack in July after a suspected Israeli drone carried out a devastating assault on a base in the Salaheddine Governorate.

Seems Iraqis don’t want Iran too : they recently burnt diplomatic missions and perfectly know that Iran sent armed thugs to shoot at protesters in Iraq.

It’s actually the other way around kid : Iranians used Iraqi PMU brigades to repress recent uprisings in their own soil, which is disgusting and unacceptable, but the opposite of your current claims. “They” in Iraq, were a group of agitators specifically set on attacking Iranian diplomatic missions while addressing absolutely none of the other pressing legitimate Iraqi’s demands that the popular anger has been drum-beating in its many nationalistic slogans, hence the absence of momentum gained towards that practice among the regular people, despite repeated attempts to focus the riots on Iran. There is actually one country they really… Read more »
