Contradictory news revealed about explosions in IMIS headquarters, Southeast Baghdad


Different news were circulated regarding the explosions that occurred in a facility for the Iran Militia in Iraq and Syria (IMIS) in al-Mada’in region, southeast of Baghdad.

Local media channels an IMIS camp saw several explosions, without mentioning the reasons for that or the resulting losses.

Other sources said the explosion spot include a headquarter for the federal police. Some personnel were wounded.

Meanwhile, a senior source from the Interior Ministry said “it’s still not confirmed if the explosions occurred as a result of negligence or electric short circuit. It could have been bombed like what happened previously.”

Last month, Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi accused Israel of being behind the attacks that have been attacking IMIS headquarters for more than two months, however, he did not declare the nature of measures that could be taken by the government in response to the frequent attacks.

Meanwhile, Abu Alaa al-Wala’i, leader of Sayyed al-Shuhadaa Brigades, threatened to revenge against Israel after Abdul-Mahdi accused it of being behind the bombing.

Israeli reports said Israel targeted Iranian military sites in each of Syria, Lebanon and Iraq with Iranian weapons inside them.

In this regard, Rami Abdul-Rahman, head of the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, said the Israeli missile attacks targeted a weapon stash near the airport, as new weapons arrived to the Iranians or Hezbollah in Lebanon.

Earlier this month, Syrian official media outlets said Israeli jets attacked military facilities in Hama city, northwest of Syria, to target Iranian sites.

Explosion was heard in the vicinity of Damascus International Airport, south of the capital. Israel has been trying to prevent Iran from centralizing in Iraq, Lebanon and Syria, as Tehran supports Bashar al-Assad in the ongoing war.
