From US bases it would take 5 minutes to reach Iran’s reactor in Bushehr.
An Iraqi website has claimed that Israeli warplanes have been using Iraqi airspace to practice for possible bombing of Iranian nuclear facilities.
Nahrainnet.com, quoting unnamed sources in the Iraqi defense ministry, said that for the past month Israel has been using U.S. bases in Iraq to conduct over flights.
Defense Ministry spokesman Major General Mohammed al-Askari dismissed the report on Friday.
“We have no information about Israeli jets using Iraqi airspace for rehearsals,” he told AFP.
Another spokesman said: “Reports about putative Israeli air force activities in Iraq are utterly baseless.”
Well, SAY something...
