Israel is bombing Iraq apnews.com/06ef6f4d525e40…

And sending drones laden with explosives to Beirut bloomberg.com/news/articles/…

And they want you to believe Iran is the aggressor in the region
Israel is now attacking Lebanon, Syria and now Iraq with increasingly regularity, and of course this is all done with a nod of approval from the US.
This is hilarious, apparently the first Israeli drone that crashed in Beirut was brought down by people throwing stones at it, according to Al Jadeed.
I don’t know why this video is loading weird, sorry 🤷🏻‍♀️
Israel has had a busy week bombing its neighbors. Such a peaceful country.

Somehow we are supposed to believe Israel is a victimized nation surrounded by mean Arabs. The headlines tell a different story.
Hassan Nassrallah says the Israeli “drones are not merely an aggression of our sovereignty. They are an act of violence. It becomes our right from now on, we shall respond to the surveillance drones in the Lebanese skies, we will down them!” m.facebook.com/rania.masri/po…
Nasrallah on Israel’s attack on Syria: “Netanyahu - you know we are not joking & we were never joking. We said if you attack our comrades, we have a clear commitment and I shall remind the whole world of our commitment - if Israelis kill any of our comrades, we shall respond”
Israel is playing a very dangerous game. They can only carry out these unprovoked acts of aggression so many times before the other side is forced to respond. Eventually they will have to respond, no actor will allow so many attacks without retaliation.
Israel is begging for a war.
Israel is at it again, this time attacking the people who defeated ISIS. Think about that. Israel wants you to believe the people who fought and died fighting ISIS are your enemy
Israel has reportedly struck Lebanon again, this time targeting Palestinians.

If a war breaks out in this region, it will have been provoked by Israel, which in less than a week has bombed Syria, Lebanon and Iraq multiple times and no one seems to care aljazeera.com/news/2019/08/i…
Israel bombs 3 middle eastern countries & US media coverage reads like an Israeli press release, whitewashing Israel’s behavior as “a significant escalation of Israeli efforts to contain the expansion of Iranian influence in the region” washingtonpost.com/world/middle_e…

No one questions the insane Israeli claim that they can bomb anything anywhere they perceive as being allied w/ Iran. Not that the laws of war ever apply to the powerful, but wow, they’re reserving the right to bomb wherever unprovoked.
About the Israeli bombing of the PMF base in Iraq, Israel’s position makes no sense. It’s framed as Israel targeting “Iran backed militias” but they are targeting the Popular Mobilization Forces whose primary objective is to fight ISIS, not Israel.
The PMF is not an “Iran backed militia”. It is an institution of the Iraqi state, so an attack on the PMF is seen as an attack on the Iraqi state.
The PMF soldier who was killed in the Israeli strike on al Qaim was in charge of logistics and was involved in the anti-ISIS battles in west Anbar. Ten thousand people attended his funeral. That’s who the Israelis killed due to their delusions about Iran.
It makes zero sense that a base in Iraq that belongs to the Iraqi army would pose a threat to Israel. It’s also difficult to believe Israel would strike Iraq without a green light from the US. The US is only hurting itself bc Israel and the US are seen as being one.
As for the Israeli attack in Syria, the Syrians say Israel hit a place housing Shia paramilitaries that train the Syrian army in their fight against Sunni extremists.
The Israelis (and Americans) do NOT understand that the main enemy for these different Shia forces that they demonize is currently the more urgent threat of sunni extremism. Of course they still oppose Israel, but Israel isn’t the priority at the moment.
But if Israel keeps getting in their way and attacking them, eventually these groups/states will have no choice but to respond, as is their right, in which case Israel is bringing it upon itself and creating the delusional threat that used to exist only in its imagination.
