Report: Israeli Intelligence Obtained Photos of Missiles in Iraq Pointed at the Gulf

According to an online report, the increased US military presence in the Gulf and the spike in tensions with Iran might have been triggered by photos of Iranian missiles in Basra pointing toward the Gulf region, which were obtained by the Israeli intelligence and shared with the United States

A report by analyst and researcher Mustafa Habib claims that the Israeli intelligence has obtained photos of Iranian ballistic missile systems in Iraq’s southern city of Basra directed toward the Gulf region.

The report is citing former Iraqi vice president Iyad Allawi who says he was briefed on the matter by a US official.

The images were not made public.

According to the report, this is the reason for the sudden, unscheduled visit of US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to Iraq last week.
