Introduction — Oct 22, 2015
The following Fars News report expands on earlier Veterans Today disclosures concerning the capture of a high ranking IDF officer with ISIL terrorists in Iraq.
Contrary to the VT report it appears that officer in question is not a general but a colonel from the Golani Brigade. Whatever his actual rank his capture and interrogation by Iraqi security amounts to huge setback for the Zionist regime and their Western allies; as it exposes who is really behind Islamic State (also known as ISIS or ISIL).
It remains to be seen whether the Western corporate media will even report on this. Although ISIL’s links to Mossad have long been known the Western corporate media has not reported on them. We suspect that they will do the same with the following. Ed.
EXCLUSIVE: Israeli Colonel Leading ISIL Terrorists Arrested in Iraq
Fars News — Oct 22, 2015
Iraqi security and popular forces held captive an Israeli colonel from Golani Brigade along with a number of ISIL terrorists.
“The security and popular forces have held captive an Israeli colonel,” a commander of Iraq’s popular mobilization forces said on Thursday.
“The Zionist officer is ranked colonel and had participated in the Takfiri ISIL group’s terrorist operations,” he added.
Noting that he was arrested along with a number of ISIL terrorists, the commander said, “The Israeli colonel’s name is Yusi Oulen Shahak and is ranked colonel in Golani Brigade of the Zionist regime’s army with the security and military code of Re34356578765az231434.”
He said that the relevant bodies are now interrogating the Israeli colonel to understand the reasons behind his fighting alongside the ISIL forces and the presence of other Zionist officers among ISIL terrorists.
The Iraqi security forces said the captured colonel has already made shocking confessions.
Several ISIL militants arrested in the last one year had already confessed that Israeli agents from Mossad and other Israeli espionage and intelligence bodies were present in the first wave of ISIL attacks on Iraq and capture of Mosul in Summer 2014, but no ranking Israeli agent had been arrested.
Political and military experts told FNA that the capture of the Israeli colonel will leave a grave impact on Iraq’s war strategy, including partnership with Israeli allies.
In a relevant development in July, Iraqi volunteer forces announced that they had shot down a drone that was spying on the Arab country’s security forces in the city of Fallujah, Western Iraq.
Iraq’s popular forces reported that they had brought down a hostile surveillance aircraft over the Southeastern Fallujah in Anbar Province.
They said that the wreckage of the ISIL’s spy drone carried ‘Israel-Made’ labels.
This was not the first Israeli-made drone downed in Iraq.
In August an Israeli Hermes drone was shot down in the vicinity of Baghdad Airport.
