The National Wisdom Movement led by Ammar al-Hakim on Monday called on Prime Minister and Commander-in-Chief of the Iraqi Armed Forces Adel Abdul-Mahdi to buy the Russian S400 and Iran's Khordad in order for Iraq to impose its sovereignty over its airspace.
The leader of the current, MP Hassan Fadam, told Twilight News, "Iraq needs to buy the system" S400 "Russian and" Khordad "Iranian, in order to impose sovereignty over the airspace, especially that these systems have proved successful, unlike the American system, Which failed in many countries. "
He stressed that Iraq must arm its air resistance with advanced, strategic and proven weapons in the world, and can not rely only on US armament, but must diversify the sources of armament, noting that "this is what we will commit the government through the House of Representatives, and its parliamentary committees Competent. "
Iraqi and Shiite political forces have signaled a breach of the country's land and sky and the targeting of military positions by factions in the Popular Mobilization close to the regime in Iran.
With reports that explosions in three crowd sites, the latest at a weapons and ammunition depot south of Baghdad, were no coincidence or accidents, political voices were demanding the purchase of an air defense system, although Iraq no longer has real enemies represented by states.
Last week's blast at an ammunition depot in Baghdad caused a wave of rumors and speculation as if it were an Israeli attack. Although the incident was caused by a flaw rather than an attack, the tally of media reports published in recent weeks paints a picture of the Israeli battle against Iran that shows it is widening to the periphery of Iraq and possibly to other undisclosed arenas.
Iraq officially refrains from accusing Israel of attacks. Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi, who has vowed that Iraq will not be a base for launching Iranian missiles, is silent. It is also interesting that Iran does not officially address these attacks, perhaps because it has something to hide, according to Israeli military analysis.
