The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) in northern Iraq rejected reports circulating among the country's media, according to which Iranian troops attacked and destroyed a Mossad base in the area under its governance.
Iraq's Fars News Agency reported that an Israeli Mossad outpost came under attack in Northern Iraq on Tuesday night, and that a senior Israeli intelligence agent was killed, while several other Mossad employees were wounded.
Iraq’s Sabereen News meanwhile, claimed that a Mossad center came under attack by “unknown resistance forces,” dealing a “heavy blow” to Israel and its secret service agency.
On Wednesday, the Kurdistan Regional Government relayed to several media organizations in the region that the reports of an alleged Iranian attack on a clandestine Mossad base in its region were false.
“We affirm that these reports are completely unfounded and that this is not the first time that the region has been accused of having a special center for Israeli intelligence on its territory,” the KRG said in a statement.
“The purpose of publishing such reports is to target a clear conspiracy against the region and its political process."
The reports of the alleged Iranian attack on the Mossad came days after a massive explosion attributed to Israel caused significant damage to Iran’s Natanz nuclear facility.
