Reports by Iraqi media revealed that Israeli secret service, Mossad, is very active in Iraq and is spying on Iran and its allies under the cover of Jordanian companies.
According to a report by Iraqi Nakhel news agency, Iraqi resistance groups in separate statements have released the information and details of such undercover places and entities in different regions of Iraq, including Taji, Kirkuk and Baghdad, and announced that they have targeted these Israeli sites.
Nakhel quoted a numbers of Iraqi prisoners as saying that they had been handed over to Israeli interrogators by the US troops.
These prisoners said that the Israelis asked them questions about popularity of the Lebanese Hezbollah, Palestinian Hamas Islamic Resistance groups and the role of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) in the region.
Nakhel further quoted a report by Israeli daily Ma’ariv as saying that Israelis are active in Iraq under the guise of Jordanian companies, the most prominent figure among them is Israel’s intelligence minister in Ehud Barak’s cabinet, who runs Barak’s company.
Phantom Report Notes: Propaganda and distraction pieces are strategies reported from both sides. What is their agenda? No idea, but I do know that operations never play out as planned, to many parameters and wild cards in the equation. One thing is known , Israel is operating out of Iraq.

“Most of the Israeli companies are active under the cover of Jordanian companies and are using Jordanian currency for their transactions,” Nakhel quoted an official in the information office of Barak’s company as saying.
In relevant remarks in May, former Iraqi National Security Advisor Moafaq al-Rubaie said that the Israeli spy agency has infiltrated its agents into Iraq under different guises and assassinated the country’s elites.
Rubaie further unveiled that Israeli spy agents, disguised as US soldiers and members of civil society organizations, have infiltrated into Iraq in a bid to carry out such terrorist moves.
Media reports revealed in November, 2011 that US Department of Defense (Pentagon) and US forces in Iraq have collaborated with Mossad to assassinate over 550 scientists and academic figures since the occupation of Iraq in April 2003.
“Mossad in collaboration with American forces in Iraq killed 350 Iraqi nuclear scientists and 200 university professors in Iraq from 2003 to 2008,” Jordanian daily International Reality said quoting a special security report prepared by US State Department in 2008 and delivered to President George W. Bush at the time.
“Israeli commandos had been operating on Iraqi territory since the occupation of Iraq, the focus of their activities being the assassination of Iraqi scientists and intellectuals. The Zionists resorted to the large-scale assassination campaign after the failure of American efforts that started immediately after the American occupation of Iraq, aimed at attracting a number of Iraqi scientists to cooperate and go to work in the United States,” the report said.
“Some Iraqi scientists were forced to work in American research centers; however, the majority of them refused to cooperate in certain fields and fled the US to other countries,” the report noted.
