Iraqi Expert: Attacks on Iranian Consulate Plotted by Riyadh, Washington, Tel Aviv

A prominent Iraqi expert said that the recent attacks on the Iranian consulate in Karbala was one of the plots implemented by the US, Saudi Arabia and Israel to pave the ground for the return of American forces.

“The US is leading a planned scenario to revive the hegemony of its forces over Iraq and its political process,” Saleh al-Akili told the Arabic-language al-Ma’aloumeh news website on Tuesday.

He said that the US, Israel and Saudi Arabia are jointly implementing a big plot to stir chaos in Iraq, stressing that the attacks on the Iranian consulate in Karbala are a part of this plot.

Al-Akili added that the scenario also included clashes between the security forces and protestors to pave the ground for the US forces’ redeployment in Green Zone to eventually launch a military coup against the Iraqi government.

In relevant remarks earlier today, Leader of Asa’ib Ahl al-Haq Resistance Movement Qais Khazali warned that the recent attacks on the Iranian consulate in Karbala, assisted by the US and Israel, indicates that they have hatched dangerous plots against Iraq.

“Setting fire on the walls of the Iranian consulate by the locals” that appeared on some tweets which were “retweeted by US President Donald Trump and welcomed by the Israeli foreign minister is the best reason for what I said earlier about Israel, the US and the Persian Gulf Arab states’ role in unrests in Iraq,” al-Khazali wrote on his twitter page on Tuesday.

He added that these incidents show Tel Aviv, Washington and the Persian Gulf Arab states’ support for their local agents to create chaos and unrests in Iraq.

Khazali said on Sunday that Israel and the UAE were playing an even bigger role than the US and Saudi Arabia in exacerbating unrests and clashes in Iraq.

“Israel plays a more powerful role than the US in the unrests and the Persian Gulf Arab littoral states are also a part of this plot against Iraq, and the UAE is playing a more powerful role than Saudi Arabia in hatching plots against Iraq,” Khazali told the Arabic-language al-Iraqiyah news channel.

He also revealed that the Israeli spy agency, Mossad, was operating in several provinces in Northern Iraq and even Sulaimaniyeh city, adding that the CIA and Mossad were also running a joint base at Baghdad airport.

“Mossad is attempting to use some defectors of certain Iraqi parties to increase clashes and the Ba’athis are also one of the main pivots to provoke unrests in Iraq,” Khazali said.
