The Iraqi authorities have deeply refuted British channel BBC 2 information, according to which, Israeli instructors would train Kurdish soldiers in Iraq. Yet, the concerned authorities were not able to explain the testimonys and the images collected.
The Newsnight magazine of September 19th, 2006 had presented exclusive images of huge installations and these trainings. “Interop” and “Colosseum“, two Israeli mercenary companies would have served as a cover to this activity of Tsahal. The officers would pass in transit through Djibouti to mask their origin.
The Israelis would have succeeded to the American mercenary companies already present in Iraqi Kurdistan since the creation of the non-overflight area, at the end of the “Desert Storm” operation, in 1991.
The presence of Israeli instructors in Iraq had been disclosed, more than one year ago, by the Israeli press itself, but this operation details were not known.
The néo-conservatives are looking forward to create an independent Kurdistan via exploding Iraq and severing Turkey and Syria, at the same time. Such a project requires the creation of a Kurdish army.(Courtesy Réseau Voltaire)
