Israel has expanded its operations against ‘Iranian targets’ to Iraq employing F-35 jets, Asharq Al-Awsat, an Arabic-language newspaper published in London, reported on July 30 citing Western diplomatic sources.
According to the report, an Israeli F-35 warplane was behind a July 19 strike on a supposed rocket depot at the ‘Camp Ashraf’ military base of the Popular Mobilization Units.
Camp Ashraf is located around 80 km from the Iranian border and 40 km north-east of Baghdad.
The Saudi-based al-Arabiya network claimed at the time that members of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Corps and Hezbollah had been killed in the strike. Nonetheless, these reports were denounced by Iraqi sources.
