Iran Transfers Missiles To Iraq Capable Of Reaching Tel Aviv


Iran has transferred ballistic missiles to Shiite proxy groups in Iraq with the capacity of reaching Tel Aviv in a bid to bolster its defences amid regional threats, Reuters reported on Friday citing Iranian, Iraqi and Western sources.

Over the last few months — according to three Iranian officials, two Iraqi intelligence source and two Western intelligence sources — Tehran has dispatched a number of short-range ballistic missiles to its allies in Iraq with the intention of helping the groups to eventually begin building their own.
