US reportedly warned Israel not to strike Iraq

US officials recently warned Israel not to strike Iraq, the Kan public broadcaster reported, as Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman signaled the IDF could target Iranian military targets in Iraq if they threatened the Jewish state.

Arab sources tell the broadcaster that the US asked Israel not to carry out any airstrikes in Iraqi territory, reportedly saying “please leave Iraq to us.”

The report says the American warning came several weeks ago, before Tehran deployed ballistic missiles on Saturday, inside Iraq, that are capable of hitting Israel and Saudi Arabia.
