US on espionage close to Iran border

The United States has stepped up espionage installations at um al-rasas island, bordering the Islamic Republic of Iran, an Iraqi security official told IRIB's Jam-e-Jam News Agency on condition of anonymity on Monday.

The US military forces assisted by British and Israeli spies has set up sophesticated espionage systems on the Iraqi island, close to southeast Iranian city of Khorramshahr, the source said.

Washington has recently claimed that Iran's military forces have invaded into the Iraqi island, an allegation refuted by Iraqi officials.

'Currently, twenty soldiers gurd the island in an outpost, bording the Arvand river', the source said.

Tel Aviv's intelligent agents, assisted by British and American spies have erected Israeli-built espionage systems which at times are able to bug cell phones upto 50km within the Iranian territory, despite oppositions from Iraqi government, the same source said.

Unmanned American reconnaisance planes and balloons fly over the island's space for mission against Iran, he said.

A US air force U-2 spy plane crashed last week on landing at a military base in the Persian Gulf littoral state of United Arab Emirates.

The news agency noted that "the United States has an agreement with the United Arab Emirates which allows it to use some of the military installations in the country."
