Netanyahu hints to Israeli involvement in attacks against Iranian-linked targets in Iraq

Baghdad Prime Minister of the Zionist entity Benjamin Netanyahu hinted to the possibility of his involvement in attacks against targets linked to Iran in Iraq.

In recent weeks, there have been a series of explosions at weapons depots and bases belonging to armed groups in Iraq, many of which are backed by Iran, Israel’s arch-enemy.

In an interview with Israeli Channel 9 television broadcasted on Thursday night, Netanyahu was asked whether Israel would strike Iranian targets in Iraq if necessary, he said “We are working not only if necessary, but in many areas against a state that wants to exterminate us. Of course, the security forces were given a hand and instructed to do anything necessary to thwart Iran’s plans.

Netanyahu did not name Iraq as one of these areas.

Israel says it has carried out hundreds of strikes in Syria, some of which hit Iranian targets, to prevent Tehran from establishing a military presence there and to prevent advanced weapons from reaching its proxies in the region.

Israeli officials have recently indicated that they consider Iraq to be more of a threat than in the past few years, but have not commented directly on the recent bombings at the PMF.

The Popular Mobilization Body, which includes mostly Shi’ite groups, on Wednesday blamed the United States and Israel for the blasts at its weapons depots and bases.
