Israel is bombing almost as many countries as the U.S.

America isn't the only country bombing Iraq, but Israel is the only country that is bombing Iraqi military forces.

Iraq's paramilitary groups backed by Iran have blamed a series of recent blasts at their weapons depots and bases on the United States and Israel, vowing to defend themselves against any future attack.

The statement on Wednesday came from the Popular Mobilisation Forces (PMF), or Hashd al-Shaabi, the umbrella grouping of Iraq's mostly Shia militias.

Another blast last week at a weapons depot run by one group sent rockets careening across southern Baghdad, killing one person and wounding 29 others.

A government investigation found that an explosion last week near Baghdad was caused by a drone attack, according to The Associated Press news agency.

These militias may be backed by Iran, but they are Iraqis that take orders from Baghdad.
Thus Israel is bombing our nominal ally, and putting our troops in Iraq in danger.
The Iraqi government is not happy about this, but since America will never deny Israel anything regardless of the action, there is nothing that can be done.

Israeli strikes on Iraq are a new thing.
Israel bombing Syria is not new. This article was from last year.

The Israeli military on Tuesday acknowledged that it has conducted airstrikes against over 200 Iranian targets in Syria since 2017, shedding light on its largely unacknowledged activities across the border to prevent Tehran from establishing a permanent military presence in the war-torn country.

That's 200 in 18 months. How many times has Israel bombed Syria during the 8-year long civil war? Probably thousands of times.

Bombing just Syria and Iraq is not enough for Israel.

Israel's fight against the shipment of weapons from Iran to organizations under its protection may reach new districts. Sources from the Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Jarida claim that Israel plans to attack targets of Houthi rebels and Hezbollah in Yemen, near the Straits of Bab-el-Mandeb separating the Red Sea from the Gulf of Aden.

Israel has not bombed Lebanon recently, which is unusual for them.
