- Israel Believed Behind Overnight Attack On Iran’s ‘Land Bridge’ From Iraq To Syria

Another mystery airstrike was conducted over Iraq late Friday night, after a summer that’s witnessed Baghdad blame Israel for a series of unprecedented violations of its airspace to carry out alleged strikes on Iran-linked Shia militias in the country.
This newest incident involved an attack on Imam Ali base near the border with Syria, in an area which Israeli defense officials have voiced concern Iran is utilizing Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) to aid Syrian forces in establishing a security corridor stretching along the Syrian-Iraq border, or so-called Iranian “land bridge”.
Israeli media has taken keen interest in each new ‘mystery’ attack on Iraq of late after last month Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu confirmed in public comments that he’s been forced to “defend” Israel’s security and “interests” even in faraway Iraq.
