    Looks like the missile launch from Iran into Syria , was demonstrative . It was fired at max range , to show it's reach . The one fired into Iraq , reportedly had casualties . But Americans deny any of their nationals were involved . This area was important enough to have these C-RAM AD , but no patriot was fired ? Why ? It looks like their Radar can detect incoming missiles , therefore these Iranian missiles are visible on their Radar . The guns reacted well and pointed accurately into missile flight path . Looks like they were out of range , the rounds racing and falling to Earth . Does patriot have slow reaction time , against flat trajectory fast missiles ? I say likely . Still better to fire missiles than just show photo in newspapers . Iranians must find internal elements , infiltration within security services , accomplices in terror attacks . Another scientist was killed in explosion today . New security services must be set up , separate from existing one , and watch for infiltration elements .

    Cool

    Peshraw Dizayee was killed on the attack , he is a Kurdish politician and former spokesperson for the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) .

    Tehran said he has links with Mossad which i believe as Erbil is known as a Hub for Mossad .

    Missiles went over Basrah and reached Erbil which is a range more than 1000 km .

    Update : Commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard’s missile force, Brigadier General Haji Zadeh: 4 “Khaybar” missiles were launched from southern Iran towards ISIS positions in Idlib, and 11 precision ballistic missiles were launched from western Iran towards targets in Iraqi Kurdistan.

    Iran announced that they carried out missile strike inside Pakistan.

    Likely Iran informed Pak about this and Pak acquiesced, maybe in lieu of a few litres of oil.

    If they didn't, almost impossible any AD system could have detected incomings in time for SAMs to be activated. Not a reflection on PAF.

    Seems like joint agreement , Pakistan did the same inside Iran .

    @ashrafnsier : Pakistani Foreign Ministry: Our armed forces carried out an anti-terrorism operation “against terrorist hideouts” located in the Iranian province of Sistan and Baluchestan.

    Doubt very much about joint agreement to strike with missiles ! Much better to have arrested and interrogated . But not too late , can form joint task force and carry out joint operations by special forces . Capturing individuals instead of killing women and children by " precision, " missile strikes . This could ignite a war , sure uncle Sam would like this very much , as well as their hidden minions in various places .

    LEAKED FOOTAGE uploaded by a source close to Iranian & Iraqi resistance who’s exposing Zionist ties inside Iraq’s Kurdistan.

    Video shows the commander of the Special Tasks Unit in the Israeli Mossad in the Kurdistan region, recruiting a citizen from northern Iraq.

    This is part of their ongoing recruitment activities in the region, exploiting individuals for terrorist acts against central and southern Iraq and to target Iran.

    According to the source, the israeli commander in the video, affiliated with MOSSAD in the Kurdistan region of Iraq, operates under the direct control of Yossi Cohen (former Mossad chief), according to confirmation from several Israeli newspapers, including what the Zionist Edy Cohen leaked.

    In the attached image, he’s shown together with the former Iraqi president Barham Salih.

    BREAKING: Exclusive sources for Al-Mayadeen:

    The IRGC was behind the targeting of 2 israeli ships earlier this month, (https://t.me/FotrosResistance/4001) in the Indian ocean.

    This Iranian strike on “Israel” from where it was not expected came in response to the assassination of leaders in the axis of resistance.

    One of the 2 ships was targeted northwest of the Maldives, and the second was targeted 200 miles from Veraval, India.

    The first ship, named “CHEM CILICON”, belongs to the ACE company and was flying the Liberian flag.

    The second Israeli ship, called “PACIFIC GOLL”, belongs to the “Eastern” company.

    A key Mossad agent was killed in the IRGC missile attack in Erbil:

    Ilan, known as Fox, was an officer of the Mossad spying agency and the coordinator of operations and recruitment of terrorists from inside the Islamic Republic of Iran.

    Additionally, he coordinated operations in the Kurdistan region of Iraq. He was present at the time of the missile attack on the residence of a Kurdish businessman. It is worth mentioning that Ilan was a long-standing member of the Mossad, who had been traveling to the Kurdistan region for over twenty years. He was active against the national security of the Islamic Republic of Iran within the Kurdistan region of Iraq and was under the surveillance of Iranian intelligence.

    Four of Ilan’s agents, namely Malka, Adika, Hen, and Sharabir, who were active in Iraqi Kurdistan, were also killed in the attack.

    We don't even know who was responsible for terror attacks in Iran , Kerman city . Just as likely to have been internal Iranian elements or external . Iran does not have Nukes , nor a stable political system . They are very vulnerable to attack right now . The enemy directly attacking or arming separatist groups . Direct involvement by Iran in the axis of resistance is not achievable or advisable now . The best Iran can do is indirect aid . Iran is doing enough . It is the Arabs and Sunni Muslims that must act . Or forever hold their head in shame ! Unless a response to direct attack against Iran soil .

    Pakistan launches retaliatory airstrikes in Iran after an earlier attack by Tehran, killing 9 people

    However, Iran did not activate their antiaircraft defense systems during the strikes. This lends credence to my earlier assertion that this attack was planned jointly by both sides.

    If Iran or Pakistan do not offer evidence to court about terrorist activities and imminent threats , necessitating strikes , then both are politically motivated acts of murder . Under Islamic law the relatives are eligible for compensation or blood money , or if not accepted , they can demand eye for an eye . What is Pakistan evidence for killing 9 people ? What is Iran evidence ?

    According to Iran, they attacked Iranians who were in Pakistan, and according to Pakistan, they targeted Pakistanis who were in Iran. This supports the idea that this was a staged conflict that both parties consented to.

    Good job! Congrats Tehran! It's about time somebody gave the zionist swine a taste of their own medicine.Smile
    Btw I just heard a report of a houthi missile attack on a US intelligence vessel, possibly killing up to 30 sailors.

    The aldjazera report sounds fishy as the vessel has the same name as the one attacked by israel in '67 and alleged fatalities are about the same.

    There are vested interests inside Iran , that want to divert attention from political problems . Those in power know that if their rule was abruptly ended , that many scores will have to be settled . They have shown their willingness to resort to extreme violence against the public . Their rule is nearing it's end . These elements are known by the security and intelligence services , are part of them or protected by them . There is every possibility that terror attacks are entirely engineered internally , and attributed to foreign enemy . The plan seems to be to engage Iran at once , in external and internal conflict , offering the opportunity to further reinforce their political position . This is an old trick , that the right wing reactionary groups adopted during the Iran / Iraq war . Refusing peace by Iraq several times , and using the war and the cries for war , to drown political voices and subvert democracy . For this reason the Iranian military and people , must safely assume that the intelligence and security services and elements within the state are compromised by the enemy . Iran military to only conduct anti-terror operations within and at it's borders .

    Because of this staged attack on Pakistan,  Iran has lost credibility.

    Questions will now be raised whether Iran genuinely struck mossad affiliated spy base in Erbil and terrorist in Idlib.

    I would agree that the Iranian intelligence and security services have lost credibility ! They lost it a long time ago . The question is , what to do ? Iran can not reform it's state apparatus right now . But Iran military and people and leadership can adopt " safe , " operating procedures . It is like when your computer gets a software problem or virus and you run it in safe mode ! Iran military must adopt safe mode operating procedures . They should not rely on personnel from these departments , but put their own security systems in operation . Only conduct anti-terror operations on it's own soil . This cuts the chance of a provocative war being started by false flag ( security agents )  to engage Iran in unnecessary internal or external war and establish even more severe religious/ Liberal / Royalist ,  right wing dictatorship .

    Practically this approach may be easier also , since the area under observation of the hot zone for military operations is much reduced . The area for observation and operations becomes the border area and not the entire territory of middle East sovereign states . But what do about  retaliation against Israel for the killing of  Iranian personnel in Syria ? Or attacks against Iranian supply vessels for Yemen ( this , I think is coming soon ) by Yanks ? The answer is to retaliate in international waters or airspace , or their territory .

    yes sir

    With Pakistan and Iran, I suspect both sides are aware of organisations within their own borders that they don't like but must accept... in the case of Pakistan their might be pro Israeli anti Iranian groups they don't particularly like but would get into trouble if they did anything about them... so for instance groups in Pakistan annoying Iran and groups in Iran interfering in Pakistan... there doesn't have to be an actual agreement between the two countries... just create the opportunity to save face so Iran attacks targets in Pakistan... but the targets they hit in Pakistan mean nothing to Pakistan but are a problem for Iran. Pakistan can't let that just lie so they have to respond so they respond against a group in Iran that bothers them but means nothing to the Iranian government. Both hit their enemies without upsetting their neighbours and eliminate local problems that could get worse and start a real conflict.

    They might not have agreed to anything but both seem OK with the results.

    Obviously if either attack was clumsy and killed lots of innocent bystanders there would be problems... like US drone strikes on targets in Pakistan for instance...

    While everyone is screaming to bomb Iran, it's worth pointing out that we don't have the assets in the region to actually do it in any kind of immediate timeframe.

    The Eisenhower isn't going to risk running the Bab al-Mandeb to get on station.
