Iran Preparing for war

An attack by ISIS militants on power transmission towers south of Baghdad caused the explosions mistakenly reported by regional media as US airstrikes on sites belonging to pro-Iranian militias in Jurf al-Sakhar south of Baghdad on Monday night, Iraq’s Security Media Cell confirmed on Tuesday morning.    JANUARY 19, 2021 10:25

On Monday night, the Hezbollah-affiliated Al-Mayadeen news, as well as Al-Hurra and Al-Arabiya, reported that explosions were heard near Jurf al-Sakhar overnight after airstrikes targeted sites in the area. While Al-Mayadeen claimed that US airstrikes had targeted sites belonging to the Iraqi Armed Forces, Al-Hurra and Al-Arabiya claimed that the sites allegedly targeted belonged to the pro-Iranian Kataib Hezbollah militia, with multiple deaths and injuries reported in the alleged incident.

Pro-Iranian militias have repeatedly clashed with US forces in Iraq, with dozens of rocket attacks in recent years targeting the Green Zone in Baghdad, where the US embassy is located, as pro-Iranian militias have demanded that US forces leave the country.
In 2018, Reuters reported that Iran was producing missiles in Jurf al-Sakhar, the area reportedly targeted on Monday night. Al-Arabiya reported that the area is used by Hezbollah for a number of operations, including developing missiles.
