Jerusalem: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has warned that he would not allow Iran to acquire nuclear weapons, after sanctions were lifted under Tehran’s historic nuclear deal with global powers.
Netanyahu strongly opposed the nuclear deal with Israel’s arch foe Iran and argued that it would not prevent Tehran from obtaining nuclear weapons,reported the Dawn.
He added that the lifting of sanctions will allow Iran to further back proxy militants in the region, including Israeli enemies Hezbollah.
Netanyahu said Israel will continue to monitor Iran’s agreements ‘on nuclear, on ballistic missiles and on terrorism’ for potential violations.
The Israeli Prime Minister further said the international community should ‘take tough and aggressive sanctions’ if violations occur. (ANI)
