Lieberman threatens to attack Iraq

Sept. 3, 2018 4:21 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 6, 2018 1:04 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli Defense Minister, Avigdor Lieberman, threatened on Monday that Israel might attack any suspected Iranian military assets in Iraq as it has already done in Syria.

Avigdor Lieberman hinted during a press conference in Jerusalem, on Monday, saying "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."

When asked if Iraq is included, he responded by saying "I am saying that we will contend with any Iranian threat, and it doesn't matter from where it comes, Israel is freed."

Israel has carried out hundreds of air strikes against arms transfers and deployments by Iran and its Lebanese ally, the Hezbollah militia, fearing the threat across its border.

Lieberman confirmed that Israel will also be following any political developments in Iraq's capital, Baghdad.
