Israel Spying on Iran from Iraq
Israel Spying on Iran from Iraq: Report
Feb. 7, 2005
The Mossad, Israel's intelligence agency, installed radars and advanced spying equipment in the Iraqi island of Om al Rassas near the city of Basra to monitor Iranian military and security movements, al Hayat newspaper reported Sunday. The paper reports, according to "informed sources," that this was done with the cooperation of the U.S. forces in Iraq. The radars were installed on high pillars less than a mile away from an Iranian port and can be seen clearly from Iranian soil, the sources claimed. This comes while Iran's chief nuclear negotiator warned that Iran would retaliate if the U.S. or Israel attacked its atomic facilities.
