What the US, Israel should learn from Iran’s missile attacks on Iraq - analysis
73 missiles and dozens of drones have been launched into Iraq in an attempt to distract from protests at home.

In an incredible act of admission that shows Iran does not fear any reprisal, Iran admitted last week that it fired 73 surface-to-surface missiles at Kurdish groups in Iraq. It also used “dozens of drones.” Since then Iran has continued to bombard Kurdish groups in Iraq, for two weeks in a row. This is clearly an attempt to distract from protests at home. Iran is also brutally crushing protests.

Iran is clearly upping its threats to the region through the admission that it used missiles and drones against Kurdish groups in Iraq. It shows that the regime in Tehran believes it can basically test its missiles and drones by attacking Kurdish opposition groups in Iraq. It knows these groups are defenseless and that Iran can quietly plan the attacks and practice using drones, missiles and artillery in combined operations.
