Israel National News said that the United States has told Iraq that it will not intervene if Israel attacks Iranian targets in the country.
Russia Today’s Arabic-language news service quoted on Thursday by Israel National News as saying that the United States has told Iraq that it will not intervene.
According to the reports، the US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo conveyed the message during his meeting with Iraqi Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi in Baghdad last week.
Al-Mahdi expressed concern about such a move and warned of its grave consequences، Russia Today also reported.
In September، the Reuters news agency reported that Iran had moved missiles to Iraq.
The report quoted three Iranian officials، two Iraqi intelligence sources، and two Western intelligence sources، all of whom confirmed the transfer of short-range missiles to Iraq over the course of several months.
Some of the officials added that Iran is helping its allies produce their own missiles as well.
Iran rejected the Reuters report، claiming it aimed to harm Iran’s ties with its neighbors.
Such false and ridiculous news have no purpose other than affecting Iran’s foreign relations، especially with its neighbors،” Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi said، adding، “This news is solely aimed at creating fears in the countries of the region."
