Times of Israel: Netanyahu hints again that Israel attacked Iran-backed militias in Iraq

‘We’re acting in very many theaters against a state that seeks to annihilate us,’ PM says, following similar statements earlier this week.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu appeared to hint on Thursday that Israel was behind attacks against Iran-backed militias in Iraq over the past month.

“I don’t grant Iran immunity anywhere,” he said to Channel 9. “Iran is a state, a power, that has sworn to annihilate Israel. It’s trying to establish bases against us everywhere. In Iran itself, in Lebanon, in Syria, in Iraq, in Yemen.”
