Why it matters: Some Iranian officials mentioned Israel as a “co-conspirator” in Soleimani’s death alongside the U.S. Israeli officials say Iran could retaliate against Israel as part of any larger move against the U.S. by using their proxies in Syria, Lebanon and the Gaza Strip.

It is still unclear if the U.S. gave Israel any heads up before the strike on Soleimani in Baghdad…

What’s next: Israeli officials don’t know if and how Iran will retaliate — but the current decision is to keep a low profile and not get involved in the tensions in Iraq.

For this reason, Netanyahu’s office asked all government ministers to refrain from public statements on the issue.
