SULAIMANI – The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) on Wednesday (April 14) denied alleged attacks on Mossad agents in the Kurdistan Region that reportedly killed or wounded Israeli forces.

“A number of local outlets released news alleging that a base of an Israeli information and activity agency in the Kurdistan Region has come under attack and a number of the base forces were wounded and killed,” KRG spokesperson Jutyar Adil said.

There is no base belonging to Israel’s Mossad agents in the Kurdistan Region, Adil said. “We believe that those baseless news and accusations are intentional and their only purpose is to plot against our Region.”

Iraq’s Sabereen News and outlets affiliated with Iran cited security sources as saying that a facility belonging to Mossad spy service came under attack by "unknown resistance forces" in the north of the country.

A number of Israeli forces were killed and wounded in the attack, dealing a “heavy blow” to the regime and its spy agency, Iranian Press TV said in a report based on a claim in Sabereen news.  

Sources were cited by The Jerusalem Post denying claims that Mossad spy service was attacked in northern Iraq.

“There is no accurate information about the location,” The Jerusalem Post reported quoting one source.

The alleged incident came hours after an attack on a commercial vessel owned by an Israeli firm commercial vessel owned by an Israeli firm.

Israeli officials spoke to the country’s Channel 12 TV as blaming arch-foe Iran for the assault and said there were no casualties.
