Military Review

In Iraq, announced the use of Israel F-35 when hitting the base of Al-Bahr

54
The Iraqi military command declares that a decision has been made to strengthen security measures in terms of the operation of air defense systems in industrial areas and near military facilities. Iraqi Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi added that a number of military facilities, including warehouses and factories, need to be moved outside the urban infrastructure due to the increased danger to the population from foreign attacks aviation from the air.




These statements were made after another air strike on the territory of Iraq. It is reported that at about 70 km north of Baghdad, the Iraqi Air Force base Al-Bahr was attacked. Al-Arabiya TV channel and Reuters reported that the attack was allegedly carried out using controlled bombs.

According to some reports, several warehouses located on the territory of the Iraqi military base were hit. It is noteworthy that the Israeli media published materials that say that missiles related to Iran’s armed groups were allegedly stored in warehouses. This is primarily about the Shiite militia of Iraq, Al-Hashd al-Shaabi. These groups are known for taking an active part in the fight against ISIS terrorists (* prohibited in Russia).

Iraqi media, citing military personnel, write that "only one state could attack a military base - Israel." At the same time, it was additionally announced that Israel "used strike drones, as well as F-35 fighters."

The Israeli military command has traditionally not commented on these allegations. At the same time, the Israeli media stated that "about fifty Iranian missiles" were destroyed in military depots north of the Iraqi capital.

Piquancy in all this history adds the fact that not far from the Iraqi air base "Al-Bahr" is a training camp, where US troops are training the Kurdish militia. This is reported by the Kurdish media. It was also added there that no damage was caused to this camp by airstrike.

    Iraq has become a passage yard, just like Syria for foreign military personnel ... who are not there.
    Israel with the receipt of the F-35 in its Air Force decided that everything is permissible to it ... impudent right before our eyes in all vectors.

        Unlike others, Russia provides a chance for the state to be independent.
        for reasonable money and on acceptable terms.
        bought in s-300, and preferably 400 and you are a sovereign country.
        clamped, dull, power or will is not enough?
        your choice, but blame only yourself.
        Sultan Erdogan has already made his choice and is sleeping calmly.
        and dough from Turkish taxes, by the way, I saved well, f-35s are now not forced to buy)

          The fact that the S-300 ensures the sovereignty of the country is, gracious sovereign, absolute nonsense. Many countries, including the USSR, collapsed altogether without the use of weapons or the invasion of foreign armies.

          "Russia gives the state a chance to be independent" - well, yes, yes, you watch less TV. And Erdogan plays by his own rules and sneezes at Russia. Russia has S400, America has F35, Ukraine has shock drones, and even in Syria, he does not play on the side of Russia. As for the supply of the S400, it is not known in which direction they will be deployed, one thing I can say now is that the Su57 is not afraid of him, and he is unlikely to leave NATO.

      Israel bombed the Persians in Syria in the same way before receiving the F-35 as after receiving it. As for the "insolent", it rather refers to the Iranian ayatollahs, who with incomparable impudence declare that their goal is the destruction of Israel. There is no other example in the world for one country to proclaim the destruction of another country as its goal. Moreover, Iran not only proclaims, but also takes concrete steps to achieve this goal. So serve him right. Israel defends itself, and self-defense is always legitimate.

    "Only one state could attack a military base - Israel."
    As the saying goes - our shots everywhere managed. Syria, Iraq, not to mention the closest neighbors, who is next? Something too much foolish Israelis focusing on their military sponsor of the United States and hiding behind national security. And most importantly, that with impunity, and this only encourages further raids.

      It's not about the neighbors. Israel strikes at its sworn enemies, the Persians, wherever they are. And he does it very selectively. It hits warehouses mainly with long-range missiles (RMSD). In a situation where Iran openly threatens Israel with destruction, such Israeli actions are not a "cover", but self-defense. It was the Persians who fanned themselves out, imagining themselves to be the rulers of destinies in the Middle East. Here is Israel and let them shit.

    Here we have de-democratized the country. Who is not too lazy to be bombed and it is not always clear who. Here and there the camps where the mercenaries train, do not understand who. And the head of the country, which does not seem to be at war with anyone, declares the need to evacuate (yes, Karl!) Vital facilities away from cities! If we add robbers' gangs in Toyoty in all volosts and highways, then an oil painting. But over the corpse of Saddam, the "indignant masses" made their heart out.

      You are clearly not in the subject. Iran is trying to become the hegemon of the Middle East and destroy Israel, for which it receives an adequate response. And if Syria and Iraq allow Iran to store their missiles on their territory, then they themselves are evil Pinocchio.

    The Saudi newspaper Al-Sharq Al-Awsat reports, citing Western diplomatic sources, that "mutual understanding" has been reached between the United States and Russia regarding Israeli activity in Iraq. The essence of the "understandings" boils down to the fact that the two superpowers do not oppose Israeli attacks on the territory of Iraq if they are aimed at ensuring the security of Israel in the face of Iranian aggression

        In the 90s and early XNUMXs, the Americans sharply reduced their military presence in Europe. Including take out all the tanks. Is aggression against the Russian Federation possible without tanks? Of course not. But the Kremlin decided that now they are knee-deep in the sea. But it turned out that not knee-deep, but rather neck-deep.

          A sharp reduction in conventional forces in Europe was on both sides. But NATO's "creeping" tactics of engaging and militarizing new members made it possible to shift the Western sphere of influence to Russia's borders without any American Abrams. And this strategy of slow, non-military "crushing" while works, you can do without American tanks and generally a significant military presence, the same money is better spent on multi-colored revolutions, "bulk" and terry propaganda.
          So, your argument is by.

      Do you think they are the only ones capable of "defending"? as an example: do you think that if some group of Ukrainian radicals began to periodically bombard Rostov with rockets from the territory of Ukraine, then they themselves and their infrastructure would remain intact and safe for a long time?

      You display your ignorance combined with arrogance. Israel is not bombing Iraq, but the Persian missile depots in Iraqi territory. Feel the difference. It is the Persians who threaten to bite the Jews, and the Jews, in response, took a club and beat it in the face of the brutalized Ayatollahs. As for the "expansion of the Dead Sea", then the hands are short for fans of such "expansion". Their hernia will come out earlier than they will expand the Dead Sea.

        In this case, let Russia begin to bomb all who placed pin dosniks weapons. After all, the situation is similar in 1000%. And Poland and Romania and the rest say that these weapons are directed against Russia and that we bombed someone? So why do Jews allow such a thing? So who is arrogant then?

    Ayatollahs decided to set up a warehouse of medium-range missiles in Iraq under the protection of Shiite groups in order to attack Israel following the example of Saddam Hussein. The calculation was that the Israeli Air Force would not be able to fly to these warehouses, as to neighboring Syria. It looks like the study of history at Iranian madrasahs is very bad, and they do not know about such rather well-known things as the strikes on the Iraqi base N3 in 1967, the attack on the Iraqi nuclear reactor in 1981, or the raids of Israeli special forces during the hunt for Scud "in 1991.

      You still forgot to add an Israeli tank raid to Lebanon in 2006, to free the two dead soldiers. And how did it end for Israel. But the Israeli army was opposed by only 4000 Hezbollah fighters. So you learn history. Useful.

And he did it just during the Six Day War, when the USSR broke diplomatic relations with Israel. And now choose the correct answer ... After this act, twenty-year-old Yasha Kazakov:
            1) went to jail;
            2) sat in the camp;
            3) went to explore the Jewish Autonomous Region;

            But they didn’t guess!
            A courageous young fighter with the Soviet regime received a visa and left for Israel (usually this was possible only if there were relatives there).

        Striking the enemy for a terrorist attack is worthy of respect. The enemy must learn a lesson so that from now on it will be disobedient.
        What ended the Second Lebanon War of 2006 for Israel? You better ask how it ended for Lebanon in general, and Hezbollah in particular. It ended badly for them. Very bad. With huge sacrifices and destruction. Since then, Hezbollah has been sitting silently like a mouse and has not arranged any more provocations on the Lebanese-Israeli border. So make a conclusion about the result of that war.
        4000 Hezbollah fighters? So Israel also involved in the battles only a small part of its army.
        "According to the Israeli command, during the hostilities from July 12 to August 14, more than 700 militants were killed, and the names of about 600 of which are known for sure. The leadership of the UN Observers and the Lebanese government cite at least 500 militants killed and 21 captured." ... Israel lost 121 killed in battles. 50 tanks were damaged, but only 5 of them were irretrievably lost. The rest were repaired and returned to service. So learn the story yourself. Compare also the Second Lebanese with the Chechen wars. You clearly need it.

        Come on, invent something. Military facilities that required the participation of a large number of civilian personnel (for example, research institutes and laboratories of the Moscow Region) were always closer to the city. The same applies to warehouses, shopping mall. An existing civilian transport network was used. Purely military facilities (military towns, garrison barracks, MTOs, parks, hangars, etc.) were carried out to the outskirts or outside for simple reasons - land.

    Have the Persians already won? And I missed ...

      At least they are really "blown away", but they only snort in two holes. In any case, in relation to Israel.

    The Israeli military command has traditionally not commented on these allegations.

    Israel is robbing again ..:? They think that they (not them))) F-35 is invisible, well, well
    I don’t understand Israel's sadomasochistic state. Directly methodically sets the whole Middle East against itself .. And then they cry "for what all anti-Semites hate us so much, etc."
    What did Iraq bother you with? This is not a state for a long time, but a territory .. Are you training?

      You honestly admitted: "I don't understand Israel."
      I, VERY BRIEFLY WILL TRY TO EXPLAIN YOU, there are statistics (I hope you know this word)
      So here is a small part of her.
      Currently, Israel maintains diplomatic relations with 163 of 195 states as UN members. There remain 32 of them 18 in general (like you) do not recognize Israel’s right to exist.
      Diplomatic relations are supported with Muslim countries: Egypt, Jordan, Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, Niger, Oman and Qatar, UAE. Very close contacts with the Saudis, hidden contacts with Iraq.

      Yes, you are right Iran, Syria and Lebanon. But they, FAR, not all BV.
      Syria and Lebanon know Israel very well.
      Iran also understands that it’s not getting to know each other better, that's why they are trying to build their bases around Israel. But Israel once missed Lebanon (Hezbollah).
      There will be no second time!

          Do not consider it nitpicking. Simply, those to whom you are addressing will understand your phrase literally.

      Have you tried to take a deeper look at the situation? Learned a lot of interesting things. For example, Israel’s actions are a response to Iran’s actions. The entire Middle East today is by no means opposed to Israel, but precisely against Iran. To such an extent that the Saudis are prepared to provide Israel with airdromes to attack Iran. As for Syria and Iraq, they fall under the distribution of gingerbread only because they provided their territory for military facilities in Iran. That is, they became accomplices in the criminal intentions of Iran and now let them not complain.

    The trick is that the Jews, according to the Iraqis, have learned to pass off their planes as American. Say, nobody will bring down Americans

    Why do you think that they "learned", and not the mattress mats themselves, at the request of Trump's son-in-law, provided them with this opportunity? lol
