The report said the Israeli planes participating in the drills include F-15, F-16, F-18 and F-22 fighter jets. It said they have conducted weeklong exercises,flying mainly at night.

Press TV said its report was based on information received from a source close to Moqtada al-Sadr’s group in Iraq.

Sadr is considered to be one of the most influential religious political figures in Iraq but holds no official title. He has repeatedly called for the immediate withdrawal of U.S.-led coalition troops and U.N. forces deployed in Iraq.

The air drills are being conducted in collaboration with the U.S. military, the report said. It said Iraq was not informed of the exercises.

The U.S. maintains a number of military bases in Iraq and the government in Baghdad is not involved in any military activities occurring there, the report said.

There was no official comment on the report by Israeli government or military officials.

Last month, Brig. Gen Mohammed Ali Safari, the commander of the Revolutionary Guards, declared Israeli and American military bases in the Middle East are within range of Iran’s missiles.

“Although we are capable of increasing the range of our missiles, we don’t think it would be necessary because today our extra-regional enemy — the Zionist regime of [Israel] — is within the range of our missiles,” he told the Fars news agency.

“As for the American forces — if they were to back Israeli threats — they would be closer to us than them [Israel] and they would be within the range of our firepower as well,” he said.

    America and Israel cannot attack Iran

    Their ONLY weapon is the terrorist organisations like Taliban, Alqaeda and Sipah e Sahaba who work on American mission, although claim to be US rivals

    well, well, Iran, you are to late, far to late to change a damn thing, you are surrounded, isolated and far to weak to do anything against Zions muppet players. All your strategic partners are busy with democracy will and reconstruction into the Zion Dollar system (blind consumption, destruction, production and destruction for the sake of more dollar emission). Your big partner of China gave up and is infected, so what the hell you think you can do about it all? The zion-Bilderberger-Iluminati club has won because there are no more smart presidents around in this world, only greedy and selfish upper class representatives. Wake up and disolve or Iran will swim in blood any given moment.

      hmmm, no they are not alone, if Iran is attacked Pakistan will have to step in because it depends on Iran’s natural resources and then China would also need to step in because it need Pakistan to get to indian ocean and middle-eastern market.

      Attacking Iran or Pakistan will start a WW3…
