An Israeli intelligence and military source is warning that Turkey and Iran are both preparing to strike into Kurdish Iraq. Turkey is seeking the Kurdish oil fields and destroying Kurdish independence groups and infiltrators. Iran is also after Kurdish rebel groups and denying Israel and the United States a staging area for any attack on its nuclear facilities. Iran and Russia intelligence reportedly believe an attack on Iran by American and possibly Israeli air and missile forces could take place as early as late September.
DEBKA is an interesting Israeli source but often its scoops are just rumors and not reliable.
