Iranian Foreign Minister Zarif said on the 2nd: Intelligence from Iraq shows that Israel is trying to provoke a war between the United States and Iran by attacking the U.S. military forces in Iraq and framing Iran.
Zarif shouted that US President Trump “beware of this trap set by Israel”.
Israeli Energy Minister Steinitz said in an interview with the local media on the 3rd: “We heard Zarif’s remarks, which is ridiculous.
But this is a warning sign that Iran is targeting Israel.
Recently, the U.S. Embassy in Iraq and other U.S. facilities in Iraq have been attacked by rockets on many occasions.
The United States accused Iran-backed militias of doing so, but Iran denied it.
CNN previously reported that Israel and other regional countries hostile to Iran strongly encouraged the Trump administration to use force against Iran before stepping down.
