Israel is using a permanent base in the Kurdish region of northern Iraq to launch cross-border intelligence missions, in an attempt to find “smoking gun” evidence that Iran is building a nuclear warhead, the Sunday Times reported yesterday. According to Western intelligence sources, Israel has used sensitive equipment during its covert operations to monitor the radioactivity and magnitude of explosives tests. It was also reported that Israeli special forces used Black Hawk helicopters to carry commandos disguised as members of the Iranian military and using Iranian military vehicles. The sources said that Israel had been conducting intelligence missions in the area for several years.
