BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:50 P.M.) – Israel is allegedly spying on Iran via the U.S. air force base some 75 miles from the Iranian border, the Tasnim News Agency reported.

According to the Tasnim report, the Israeli forces are collecting intelligence on the Iranian military movement around the Persian Gulf region.

Quoting Israeli military expert Semyon Tsipis, Sputnik’s Urdu section corroborated these reports, adding that the Israeli forces were specifically operating out of a U.S. Air Force base in Shindand in western Afghanistan, some 120 kilometers (75 miles) from the Iranian border.

“Of course the proximity to an enemy state is the principle reason for carrying out such an operation and also provides legitimacy. But beyond that, another objective of the mission is to acquire experience in combat in the local ground conditions and activity against the local population,” Tsipis said, according to the reports.

Israel has not commented on these reports, nor has the Iranian government.
