BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:45 A.M.) – Israel has no longer limited their attacks against Iran to just Syria, a new report from Asharq Al-Aswat claimed on Tuesday.
Citing western diplomatic source, the Saudi-based publication alleged that Israeli warplanes attacked Hashd Al-Shaabi’s (Popular Mobilization Units) base in the Salaheddine Governorate of Iraq on July 19.
According to the diplomatic source, the Israeli Air Force used their new F-35 stealth fighter jets to carry out the attack.
Asharq Al-Aswat then referenced an alleged attack by the Israeli Air Force on Hashd Al-Shaabi’s Ashraf base, which was previously used by the dissident People’s Mujahedin of Iran (MEK)
The base is located within 80 kilometers of the Iranian border and 40 kilometers northeast of Baghdad.
The base lies 80 kilometers from the border with Iran and 40 kilometers northeast of Baghdad.
No footage has been released to show this alleged attack, nor has the Iraqi Ministry of Defense acknowledged the strikes.
The Iraqi Ministry of Defense, however, did confirm the July 19 attack, which was believed to have been conducted by sophisticated assault drones.
