"Israel's freed." Tehran has transferred dozens of short-range ballistic missiles to Shia proxies in Iraq over the last few months, according to a Reuters report published over the weekend. This also needs to be clear.

"As for the threat from Iran, we are not limiting ourselves to Syria".

Israel Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman issued the threat of attack during a press conference hosted and broadcast live by the Israeli Television News Company.

"The motto of these war games is unity. and to declare that, when it comes to adversity and threats from foreigners, we all join to defend the (Islamic Republic's) system", Basij commander Gholam-Hossein Gheibparvar was quoted as saying by IRNA.

"Israel's freedom is total".

The Israeli military official did not comment directly on those reports on Tuesday, but said the army was aware of missile transfers from Iran to Iraq and then on to Syria.

Iraqi Vice President and former Prime Minister Nuri al Maliki is seen during the first session of the new Iraqi Parliament in Baghdad, Iraq on September 3, 2018.

Deeply concerned about reports of #Iran transferring ballistic missiles into Iraq.

Mr Johnson said: "They may puff about "cherry-picking" the single market". He added: " Boris Johnson resigned over Chequers".

"If true, this would be a gross violation of Iraqi sovereignty and of UNSCR 2231", he tweeted, referring to a U.N. Security Council resolution endorsing the 2015 worldwide nuclear deal with Iran. Over the weekend, both Iran and Iraq issued statements denying this ever happened.

Tehran is furious over US President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw from the accord on Iran's nuclear program and re-impose sanctions on Tehran.

Trump's administration withdrew the USA from the nuclear deal earlier this year and re-imposed sanctions against Iran.

Israel has carried out hundreds of air strikes against arms transfers and deployments by Iran and its Lebanese ally, the Hezbollah militia, fearing the threat across its border.

These operations have largely been ignored by Russia, Damascus's big-power backer, and coordinated with other powers conducting their own military operations in Syria.

Despite their formal state of hostilities, Israel and Iraq have not openly traded blows in decades. During the 1991 Gulf war, Iraq fired dozens of Scud rockets into Israel, which did not retaliate, out of consideration for USA efforts to maintain an Arab coalition against Saddam.

Meanwhile, a report by The Wall Street Journal uncovered on Thursday the role of Iran in helping Iraqi militias attack American forces during the USA invasion of 2003.
