Tehran 11 January_An Israeli military intelligence website says Iran’s recent successful counterattacks against the US’ Ain al-Assad Airbase in western Iraq strikes a note of warning for Israel as the occupying regime's anti-missile systems are based on American models.

US failure to repel Iran attack exposes Israel vulnerability to Iran missiles: Israeli reportTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club(YJC)-DEBKAfile, which is reputed to enjoy connections with informed sources within the Israeli regime, published the comments on Friday, two days after Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) unleashed volleys of ballistic missiles at Ain al-Assad in Iraq’s Anbar Province, and another outpost in Erbil, the capital of the semi-autonomous Iraqi Kurdistan, both of which housed US forces.

The strikes sought revenge for US airstrikes that assassinated Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani, commander of the IRGC’s Quds Force, among others in Baghdad last week.

General Soleimani, who had won hard-earned reputation as the Middle East's most revered anti-terror commander, cooperated closely with Iraq's Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) and other regional counter-terrorism groups against the most deadly of the terrorist outfits to ever take on the region, including the Daesh Takfiri terrorists.

Soon after the assassination, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said Washington was to face a “harsh revenge” for the atrocity.

The Israeli website billed the revenge strikes as the first missile attacks to take place on US military targets since the Korean War.
