SULAIMANI (ESTA) — The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) on Saturday denied claims that there are Israelis living in the Kurdistan Region, saying Israel has no “interest” in the Region.

Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu’s spokesperson to the Arab media Ofir Gendelman said Iran would try to attack Israelis living in Georgia, Azerbaijan, Turkey, UAE, Bahrain and the Kurdistan Region, after Iran threatened revenge for the killing of top Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh.

“In light of the latest Iranian threats & given Iranian involvement in terror attacks, there is concern that Iran will try to attack Israelis in nearby countries such as Georgia, Azerbaijan, Turkey, UAE, Bahrain, the Kurdish area in Iraq  as well as throughout the region & Africa,” Gendelman said in a tweet.

KRG Spokesman Jotiar Adil said in a statement on Saturday that there were no Israelis living in the Kurdistan Region, calling the claims “baseless”.

“As we have declared several times before, Israel has no interest in the Kurdistan Region and there is no Israeli citizen in the Kurdistan Region,” Adil said.

“We reject the remarks and they are baseless,” he added.
