As regional tensions rise, Iran strikes the Israeli “Spy Headquarters” in Iraq.

Iran launched missile strikes on a number of sites in Syria and the Kurdistan area of Iraq, demolishing a spy center and an assembly of terrorist organizations hostile to Iran. There were four people killed in the incident.

The strike was carried out “in response to the terrorist groups’ recent crimes that unjustly executed a group of our dear compatriots in Kerman and Rask,” the statement continued. The attacks have been criticized by the US, which has called them “reckless”. “Today’s assaults in Erbil by Iran are strongly condemned by the United States, which also extends its sympathies to the families of those killed. Relentless missile attacks by Iran threaten the stability of Iraq, and we are against them,” US State Department spokesman Matthew Miller stated in a statement. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights war monitor reported that “at least 4 missiles that came from the direction of the Mediterranean Sea” fell in Aleppo and closest countryside, where explosions were heard.
About ninety persons were killed on January 3 when suicide bombers attacked groups of people gathered close to the tomb of IRGC general Qasem Soleimani in Kerman. IS later claimed responsibility for the incident. An attack on a Rask police station in December claimed the lives of at least 11 Iranian police officers. Claiming responsibility was the jihadist organization Jaish al-Adl (Army of Justice), which was founded in 2012 and is designated as a “terrorist” outfit by Iran.

'Spy operations' by Israelis

According to Iran’s IRNA news agency, the IRGC also declared that it had hit a purported Israeli “spy headquarters” in the autonomous Kurdistan region of Iraq.

It included Israel’s Mossad intelligence agency when stating that the headquarters had functioned as “the center for developing espionage operations and planning terrorist actions in the region.”

According to the Guards, the hit was carried out in retaliation for previous attacks on Iran and the “axis of resistance” by organizations associated with Iran, which sparked worries about violence emanating from Israel’s conflict in Gaza.

Iran-backed armed groups in Lebanon, Iraq, Syria, and Yemen have been drawn in by the escalating regional tensions brought about by Israel’s conflict with the Palestinian organization Hamas.

The IRGC launched missile strikes on Arbil in March 2022, alleging to be targeting an Israeli archenemy “strategic center.” Iran said on December 25 that senior Guards commander Razi Moussavi had been killed by an Israeli strike. Furthermore, a security source claims that Israel murdered Wissam Hassan Tawil, the chief commander of the Hezbollah organization in Lebanon, which is supported by Iran, on January 8. His passing occurred soon after Saleh al-Aruri, a prominent figure in Hamas, which Iran also supports, was murdered by an Israeli missile assault on Beirut. Hamas.
