The Best Way to Unite Iraq’s Sunni and Shiia

From Holden:

That would be a Kurdish alignment with Israel.

Private Israeli security firms have sent experts to Iraq’s northern Kurdish region to give covert training to Kurdish security forces, an Israeli newspaper reported on Thursday.

The daily Yedioth Ahronoth said that over the past year and a half the Israeli companies had set up a secret training base in northern Iraq as part of a multi-million dollar project with the Kurdish regional government.

It said dozens of Israeli specialists had been sent to teach Kurdish forces “weapons training, self-defence and counter-terror warfare”.


Israel and Iraq have no diplomatic ties, and Iraq is one of a number of Arab countries with which the Jewish state is still officially in a state of war.
