(Persia Digest) - Cavid Wainer writes in Bloomberg LP that the U.S. sent a message to Israel warning it not to attack Iranian targets in Iraq, the Kan public broadcaster reported, citing Western sources.

The message was transmitted in recent weeks due to information the U.S. received, Kan reported. Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Monday that Israel could target Iranian military assets beyond Syria, in the wake of a Reuters report that Iran had transferred short-range ballistic missiles to Shi’ite allies in Iraq in recent months.
