Iranian Control of Strategic Kurdish Mountain Poses Serious Threat to Israel, Top Security Official Says | Algemeiner.com

The nature of that threat, according to the official, was demonstrated during the First Gulf War in 1991, when there was a consistent high-level Iraqi military presence on Mount Sinjar, even though the area was never targeted by Western coalition aircraft during the conflict.
