Israel launches drone strikes inside the Islamic country

ISLAMABAD - Israel has used American airbases in Iraq to launch its recent drone attacks inside the Iraqi territory.

Iraqi commander, while warning said that the aggression will be retaliated if repeated.

Ali al-Yasseri, the commander of the Iraqi resistance group Saraya al-Khorasani, says all Israeli attacks on Iraq were indirect, and were launched from US bases inside Iraq.

"The drones flying in the Iraqi airspace had taken off from the US bases," he told Al Alam News Network.

The Iraqi commander said the resistance forces have in the past defeated the Israelis and are capable of doing so again thanks to their increased power today.

"The Hashd al-Shaabi today enjoys a very great power to create a new victory for Iraq," he said.

Iraq's military said on August 26 it had launched an investigation into an Israeli strike that killed two Hashd al-Sha’abi fighters near the town of al-Qa’im close to the country's western border with Syria.
