1.Since the seeded article did not have any photos, I used this photo from an excellent article in Ynet on the Israel special forces.(" The IDF as you've never seen it before ") This group "Duvdevan" may or may not be the group mentioned here in this seeded article.
2. The seeded article is about Israel's special relationship with the Kurds of Iraq-- it was published in the UK leftist publication The Guardian in 2005.
Israeli firms are carrying out military training and commercial activities in Kurdish areas of north Iraq, according to reports in an Israeli newspaper. Yedioth Ahronoth reported yesterday that dozens of former members of Israel's elite and covert forces were training Kurdish fighters in anti-terrorism techniques.
Other companies, the newspaper said, were involved in telecommunications and infrastructure projects such as the building of an airport at Irbil.
Iraq and Israel are still officially at war, though since the 1960s Israel and the Iraqi Kurds have had a relationship. A spokesman for the Israeli foreign ministry said his country had no relationship with the new Iraq and it remained "at war".
