Israel has accused Iran of moving its missile systems into Iraq, which Israel reportedly targeted in recent airstrikes, Haaretz reports.

In its 2019 intelligence assessment, Israel found that Iran remains committed to its goal “to create regional hegemony for itself via alliances spreading from Iran through Iraq and Syria to Lebanon.”

This is despite the fact that “Iran has been forced to recalculate the way it tries to realize its regional vision. This recalculation led Iran to realize that the domestic and international situation in Iraq created better opportunities for it to prepare its regional plans.”

Israeli defense officials claim that Iran deployed the bulk of its missile systems in Iraq as opposed to Syria, which is easier for Israel to attack. Israeli intelligence also states that Iran is providing missiles with ranges in the hundreds of kilometers to Iraqi militias.

Although the Israeli Defense Force has not officially commented on the strike in northern Iraq, the ruling Likud party published an old clip of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu delivering a speech before the United Nations General Assembly vowing, “Israel will do whatever it must do to defend itself against Iran’s aggression. We will continue to act against you in Syria. We will act against you in Lebanon. We will act against you in Iraq. We will act against you whenever and wherever we must act to defend our state and defend our people.”
