Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman signaled on Monday it could attack alleged Iranian military assets in Iraq, as it has done by carrying out scores of air strikes in war-torn Syria.
“We are certainly monitoring everything that is happening in Syria, and regarding Iranian threats we are not limiting ourselves just to Syrian territory. This also needs to be clear,” Liberman told a conference in Al-Quds (Jerusalem).
Asked if this included Iraq, Lieberman responded: “I am saying that we will contend with any Iranian threat, and it doesn’t matter from where it comes … Israel’s freedom is total. We retain this freedom of action.”
