Two Iraqi officials, in connection with the ongoing investigations into the Iranian ballistic bombing of Erbil last month, said that the authorities concerned with the "espionage" file in the country had not found "a single evidence" to support Iran's allegations of the presence of an Israeli "Mossad" headquarters in the city.

The two officials, who spoke to "Asharq Al-Awsat", a Saudi daily newspaper, on condition of anonymity, agreed that Iran had informed the Baghdad and Erbil governments, earlier, of its annoyance about the presence of the Iranian opposition in the Kurdistan Region, and did not talk about the Mossad, the Israeli agency of espionage abroad, until after the bombing of the home of Kurdish businessman Baz Karim. Al-Barzanji.

On March 13, the Iranian Revolutionary Guards claimed to target what it said was an "Israeli strategic center" in the Kurdistan region with 12 ballistic missiles, in an operation that it said came in response to the killing of two of its officers by Israeli shelling near Damascus.
