Skip to comments.Israel Shared Iranian General Soleimani's Cell Phones With US Intelligence Before Drone Strike: Report
Posted on 05/09/2021 3:11:57 AM PDT by USA Conservative
Israel shared three cell phone numbers used by Qasem Soleimani with U.S. intelligence in the hours before American drones unleashed Hellfire missiles on the Iranian general last year, Yahoo News reported Saturday.
The revelation sheds new light on the role that Israel played in the killing of Soleimani, who the State Department says was responsible for hundreds of U.S. troop deaths as the head of the Revolutionary Guard's elite Quds Force.
The drone strike occurred shortly after midnight on Jan. 2, 2020, as Soleimani and his entourage were leaving Baghdad's international airport.
As three Delta Force sniper teams monitored Soleimani on the ground and three American drones kept a bird's eye view of him, Israel shared intelligence with the U.S. military.
"In the six hours before Soleimani boarded his flight from Damascus, the Iranian general switched cellphones three times, according to a U.S. military official," the Yahoo report said.
"In Tel Aviv, U.S. Joint Special Operations Command liaisons worked with their Israeli counterparts to help track Soleimani’s cellphone patterns. The Israelis, who had access to Soleimani's numbers, passed them off to the Americans, who traced Soleimani and his current phone to Baghdad."
Soon after Soleimani's car left the airport in Baghdad, two Hellfire missiles rained down, killing him, the deputy commander of Iran-backed militias in Iraq and five others.
Yahoo also reported Saturday that prior to Soleimani's death, Israeli intelligence shared intelligence with the CIA about an Iranian who was leaving the country to pick up cell phones or Iranian leaders. U.S. intelligence was then able to plant bugged cell phones for the courier to buy, according to the report.

Very true. I wonder, however, how willing, are the Israelis, to share information with the Biden cabal? Maybe they feel, if they tell Biden, the Iranians would know everything in minutes.
Amazing, our so called Intelligence can pull amazing things, but can’t determine where Obama was born, who hacked our elections etc.
Surely, the military brass and our ITs know Biden is not our true president..
So, what are they going to do if he tries getting us into a needless war, or fails to defend us?
Biden shared seal team 6 details and got them all murdered
How did Foxnews find out about this? Who in the administration of Sock Puppet Joe leaked this out? And why would they do it?
The Biden admin leaks this info to let Iran know that it is on their side.
Awesome..... he was an American killing terrorist. REST IN HELL YOU POS!!
Sorry, I need to rant about the author:
Missiles do not “rain down” on anyone.
They are precision, targeted instruments of death.
Unguided bombs would “rain down” but they have all been replaced with smart bombs that have guidance.
The days of “raining down” on an enemy are behind us. But ignorant journalists still use the phrase.
That was Biden’s PLAN....to get the SEAL TEAM SIX KILLED!
Yes, especially if John F’n Kerry hears about it.
..Mr QASEM Soleimani???
Yes, Yes, What IS it???
..It’s time to start getting in shape for your virgins.
Who’s the traitor who leaked this classified info.
Indict Kerry for treason now!!!
There are plenty of “dumb bombs” still in inventory, but Hellfire is not one of them.
In a good-will gesture toward China, the Clinton Administration has agreed to sell it a sophisticated $8 million supercomputer, senior Administration officials said today. The decision is part of the Administration’s strategy to embrace rather than isolate China despite disagreements over human rights, weapons proliferation and trade...Even more significant for American business, the Administration has also decided to lift the ban on important components for China’s nuclear power plants..
The Administration decided to allow the sale despite clear evidence that China has broken its promises to Washington by exporting M-11 missile components and technology to Pakistan. Those exports violated an international missile control accord. - https://www.nytimes.com/1993/11/19/world/us-will-allow-computer-sale-to-court-china.html
They seem to be passing on what Yahoo News reported.
The CIA and lots of other domestic and foreign enemies (including Biden I am sure) got seal team 6 killed PER THE CIA’S PLANS/CARRIED OUT/ETC.
