Imaj-Sat International has released photos of a weapons depot in southern Baghdad that was in control of pro-Iranian militias.

The Iraqi government has been silent on this, and has not commented on another similar case in which several members of an IRGC missile specialist grouo were killed.

In recent months, Israel has been increasingly engaged in air strikes against Iranian-backed militias in Syria and Iraq, focusing after years of reported air strikes aimed at preventing Iran from deploying in Syria. It is now focused on Iraq.
Israeli officials have identified Iraq as a possible gr weowing base of Iranian-backed operations against the Jewish state.
