Iraq recalls envoy from Tehran after attacks on terrorists

TEHRAN, Jan. 16 (MNA) – Iraq's Foreign Ministry has recalled its ambassador to Iran for consultations and summoned Iran's chargé d'affaires in Baghdad in protest against Iran's last night's strikes on Mossad and terrorist position in Erbil and Syria.

Ambassador Nassir Abdel Mohsen was "recalled for consultations in the context of the latest Iranian attacks on (regional capital) Erbil in which there were dead and wounded," an Iraqi foreign ministry statement said.

Early Tuesday, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) said it fired barrages of ballistic missiles at Syrian bases of terrorists who were involved in recent terrorist attacks in Iran, as well as an Israeli espionage center in the Iraqi Kurdistan region.

The IRGC said the first missile strike targeted gathering places of commanders and main elements of recent terrorist attacks in the Iranian cities of Kerman and Rask.

It added that the strike came after gathering points of the ISIL Takfiri terrorist group were identified in the occupied territories of Syria and destroyed with a number of ballistic missiles.

The IRGC said in a later statement that another missile strike had been launched at a main espionage center of the Israeli regime’s Mossad spy agency in the Iraqi Kurdistan Region.

The IRGC added that its missile strike on the Iraqi Kurdistan Region has totally destroyed the Mossad center there.

It noted that the Mossad center was used “to develop espionage operations and plan acts of terrorism” across the region, especially in Iran.

The missile strike against the Mossad center, the statement said, was in retaliation for the recent assassinations of the resistance front’s commanders, especially those of the IRGC, by the Zionist regime.
