Iraqi Resistance takes out Mossad office in Kirkuk
IRAQI Resistance fighters attacked a secret office for the Zionist Mossad in Kirkuk on Saturday with long range automatic weapons, killing six employees. The office, operating under the name Ar-Rafidayn Export Company was a known Mossad front.
According to the Kuwaiti newspaper al-Qabs, Shi’ite and Kurdish sources confirmed that the Resistance attack had taken place. The newspaper reported that US occupation forces slapped a high security ring around the scene of the Resistance attack, preventing anyone from approaching. Witnesses told the Egyptian News Agency that Resistance fighters used long range automatic weapons in the attack on the secret office.
Sources reported that the US invaders, assisted by the Kurdish chauvinist collaborationist Peshmergah militia, closed all entrances and exits from the city of Kirkuk and began an extensive campaign in an attempt to capture the Resistance fighters who carried out the attack.
SIX agents of the Israeli intelligence service Mossad were killed in the north Iraqi town of Kirkuk early Saturday morning, reported the Egyptian news agency MENA.
The secret agents of Israeli intelligence were acting under the cover of export company ‘Ar-Rafidein”, the report said, refering to their source in Kirkuk.
The source speculates that the Mossad agents may have been killed by fighters of the underground group ‘Ansar-Al-Islam’. The witnesses say that the assailants were speaking Kurdish.
The building of the company was riddled with the machine-gun fire. The people inside tried to fire back but were shot, reported RIA Novosti.
Israeli government wouldn’t confirm this. The Mossad higher-ups stated many times that Iraq was outside the sphere of the main interests of their organization, as mentioned by MIGnews.com.
