UPDATE on Iran attack against Northern Iraq by missiles

As per usual, every report contradicts every other report. Its probably true that Iran fired some missiles and its probably true that they hit something or close to something. Many people are reported to be dead and no one was hurt or killed.

Zero Hedge: Iran Claims Responsibility For Attacking ‘Israeli Strategic Center’ In Iraq

Update (03.13.2022 1158ET): Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) has claimed responsibility for a missile strike on what it called an Israeli “strategic center” located in the Kurdish capital of Erbil, located in northern Iraq, according to Bloomberg, citing the Revolutionary Guard’s official news portal, Sepah News.

The semi-official Tasnim news agency, which is closely aligned to the IRGC, said 10 precision-guided missiles were fired from northwestern Iran, citing an informed source that it didn’t name. The report added that the strike “very likely” resulted in “many casualties” without providing any details. -Bloomberg

Nobody was hurt or killed in the attack, according to US Deputy Secretary of State, Wendy Sherman, denying earlier reports that the US consulate was the target and had been hit. Sherman told Fox News that the incident was of “great concern to all of us,” and amounted to attacking Iraq’s sovereignty.

As we noted last night, the attack comes days after Iran vowed revenge for an Israeli missile attack near Damascus, Syria which killed two IRGC members. According to a Sunday statement by Sepah, there will be a “severe and destructive response” to any future attacks from Israel.

Last night’s report was that the missiles hit a US consulate in Iraq.

  2. here. i did a little footwork if someone is able to continue..

    i looked up IP addresses in Ku r distan and a bunch in Erbil are managed by these guys. You can pull up a map and see they are not far from at least one consulate.
    if they pick up a phone call tomorrow AM, you can ask how the traffic is or something.

    I’d rather rely on an on-the-scene possibly biased bys t ander
