The Israeli defence minister, Avigdor Lieberman, indicated that Israel is "monitoring everything that is happening in Syria and, regarding Iranian threats, we are not limiting ourselves just to Syrian territory. This also needs to be clear". In response to a question regarding Iraq, Lieberman added that "we will contend with any Iranian threat, and it doesn't matter from where it comes... Israel's freedom is total. We retain this freedom of action".
