Iraq probe of Baghdad explosion says drone strike set it off
[IsraelTimes] An Iraqi government fact-finding committee set up to investigate a massive munitions depot explosion near Baghdad earlier this month concludes the blast was the result of a dronezap.
The report, outlining the findings of the committee, says the August 12 explosion at the al-Saqr military base, which killed one civilian and maimed 28, wasn’t caused by faulty storage or an electricity circuit as had been suggested.
The report instead blames it on a dronezap that caused a huge fire. It didn’t say who the drone belonged to.
The blast was the latest in a series to hit bases for Iran-backed militia groups operating in Iraq. Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi ordered an urgent investigation.
According to intelligence reports, Iran
...a theocratic Shiite state divided among the Medes, the Persians, and the (Arab) Elamites. Formerly a fairly civilized nation ruled by a Shah, it became a victim of Islamic revolution in 1979. The nation is today noted for
spontaneously taking over other countries' embassies, maintaining whorehouses run by clergymen, involvement in international drug trafficking, and financing sock puppet
militias to extend the regime's influence. The word
Iran is a cognate form of
Aryan, the abbreviation
IRGC is a cognate form of
Stürmabteilung (or SA), the term
Supreme Guide is a cognate form of either
Führer or maybe both, and they hate
Jews Zionists Jews. Their economy is based on the production of oil and vitriol...
has been providing Shi’ite militias in Iraq with guided ballistic missiles capable of hitting Israel. The Islamic Theocratic
Republic is also believed to be trying to build an alternative stronghold following Israel’s ongoing campaign against them in Syria.
Iran has been trying for a number of years to establish a 1,200 km. land bridge from Tehran to the Mediterranean. In May, satellite images taken by ImageSat International showed Iran has been building a new border crossing 2.6 km. west of the official al-Bukamal al-Qaim border crossing, which would expedite weapons transfers from Tehran to groups like Hezbollah.
While it could be that the Israeli jets were ordered to strike targets that posed an immediate threat to Israel, the Jewish state rarely strikes during the day. But it could be that Israel’s military under IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Aviv Kochavi’s command is not willing to wait.
It could be assumed that Israel will now strike during the day to prevent Iran from transferring its missiles to Syria and hit them when they are still in Iraq.
