Mysterious Objects: Well Protected In Iraqi Mountains

I have no idea what these are. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I've added color to an image that was submitted quite a while back in an attempt to prove that these objects are protruding above ground and are not optical illusions and actually depressions as many have stated.

Unexplained is another category it would fit under.

I added it to "info requested" because there is a good chance someone can tell us. We save "unexplained" for things that are controversial or for which there seems to be no concensus as to what is being seen.

This one is easy: standard soil reinforcements for tanks and other vehicles. Filed engineers dig 1 m deep pits, tank drives in and only gun is looking above. Fast and natural way to add extra armory and camouflage. As I guess, it is on the border with Iran? May be these left from the war?

I would agree that the berms in the lowland are for protection, but what are the objects protruding high above the ridge line? They have to be nearly fifty-feet tall.

There are shadows inside of these objects. They are pits dug for armor. Sometimes these are dug at an angle so tanks can be used more like artillery. I looked at them with Google Earth. And it's just a few kilometers from the Iranian border.
