Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has hinted that his country was behind the latest attacks on ammunition depots in Iraq belonging to the Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF). reports citing foreign media that in an interview, Netanyahu was asked whether Israel acts in Iraq "if required."

"We do act not only ‘if required.’ We act on many fronts confronting a state that seeks to destroy us. Certainly, I gave freedom of action to the security forces and instructed them to do everything necessary to foil these Iranian initiatives," Netanyahu said.

So far, Israel has only publicly admitted that it conducts raids on neighboring Syria as part of its fight against Iran in the region. The last time Israel officially claimed responsibility for the bombing of Iraq dates back to 1981 when the Israeli Air Force destroyed the Osirak nuclear power plant, which was under construction southeast of Baghdad.
