Al-Dhari: Israeli firms operate in Iraq

The head of an Iraqi clerical association, Harith al-Dhari, says companies affiliated with the Israeli spy agency Mossad are freely operating all over Iraq.

Al-Dhari, the head of the Association of Muslim Scholars, says Israeli companies are particularly concentrated in the countries in northern Kurdistan region. 

“The companies are directly working with Zionist spy agencies,” said al-Dhari, Iraq's most influential Sunni cleric and a prominent anti-American figure. 

“Israeli companies infiltrating Iraq work under Arabic, English and Turkish names,” he further explained.

Reports say at least 70 Israeli firms operate in war-ravaged Iraq, using proxy Arab or European companies. 

Earlier this year, Syrian customs officials seized several trucks loaded with Israeli goods heading to Iraq. 

In 2008, Iraq's Yaqen News Agency unveiled that more than 55 Israeli companies were working in the country under assumed names. 

The agency also added that the Zionist firms operate in a variety of fields, including infrastructure and marketing. 

It also said that Israel exports more than $300 million in goods to Iraq annually. 

The companies, the report said, won contracts for construction projects in Iraq, thanks to help from “the US Agency for International Development that oversees the allocation of building contracts in Iraq.”
