The Iranian Threat
Iraq: Between Iran and the United States

In Iran, Iraq and among its branches in the Middle East, this week marked the anniversary of the death of General Qassem Suleimani, commander of the Quds Force of the Revolutionary Guards, who was killed by the U.S. military on January 3, 2020 along with Abu Mahdi Almohands, deputy chief of militias. 

Western intelligence communities are closely monitoring the activities of the Quds Force to locate planned retaliatory actions throughout the Middle East or against targets in the West, with particular emphasis on U.S. bases in Iraq and Syria and the U.S. embassy complex in the "Green Zone" in Baghdad.

The Ra'i Alyomm newspaper last weekend unveiled an Iraqi intelligence document that planned an imminent attack on the US embassy in Baghdad in retaliation for the assassination of Qassem Suleimani.

It is also desirable that Israel take the Iranian threats seriously, especially in light of the fact that former head of the Security Service, Major General Tamir Heiman, recently revealed that Israel assisted in the assassination of Qassem Suleimani.

On the 20th of last month, Major General Heiman gave an interview to the Intelligence and Security Center's Journal of Intelligence and Security and said that "Israeli intelligence had a part in Suleimani's American assassination operation and that this is an achievement because Iran is our main enemy."

The Iranians vowed to avenge the death of Qassem Suleimani, they responded immediately with a missile attack on the US base at Ein Al-Assad in Iraq and promised to expel the US from Iraq, this was supposed to be Iran's great punishment for the Americans: humiliation and expulsion from Iraq.

Since then, U.S. military bases in Iraq and the U.S. embassy compound in Baghdad have been the subject of occasional attacks by pro-Iranian militias.
