Israeli espionage agency Mossad has come under attack in Iraq, with a number of Israeli forces killed or wounded in what was described as a “heavy blow against the Zionist regime” by security forces.
The Iraqi Sabereen News Agency, citing security sources, reported late on Tuesday that a facility affiliated with Israel’s Mossad spy agency had been attacked by “unknown resistance forces” in the north of the country.
The Iraqi media said the attack resulted in the death and injury of a “number of Israeli forces,” dealing a “heavy blow” to the regime and its spy agency.
The sources fell short of providing details on the location of the attack and the extent of damage. However, Sabereen said that “Tomorrow, we’ll share some pictures of the operation.”
Reacting to the incident, a high-ranking Iraqi military commander said, during an interview with Russian news network RT, that they not received any news about the attack so far.
Media outlets in northern Iraq have yet to comment on the attack.
The incident came hours after an Israeli ship was attacked in the Emirati port of Fujairah, causing damage but no casualties.
