Israel no closer to attack on Iran nuclear sites, official says

Israel’s national security adviser, Tzachi Hanegbi, stated that Israel is not on the verge of attacking Iran’s nuclear sites. This comes as talks between Iran and the United States aim to ease tensions and establish measures to limit Iran’s nuclear program. Hanegbi emphasized that any agreement reached in these talks would not bind Israel, as it perceives a nuclear-armed Iran as an existential threat. When asked about the possibility of an Israeli preemptive strike, Hanegbi responded that they are not getting closer to that point because Iran has ceased enriching uranium beyond Israel’s red line. However, he acknowledged that the situation could change, and Israel is prepared to defend itself against a regime armed with weapons of mass destruction that seeks to annihilate them.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has set a red line regarding Iran’s uranium enrichment, specifying that it should not exceed 90% fissile purity. In recent years, Iran has increased its enrichment to 60% purity. Efforts to revive the 2015 nuclear deal, which limited Iran’s enrichment to 3.67%, have been unsuccessful. Iranian and Western officials have engaged in discussions to outline potential steps to curb Iran’s advancing nuclear work.

The 2015 agreement aimed to restrict Iran’s uranium enrichment to prevent the development of nuclear weapons. Iran denies having such ambitions. However, in 2018, then-U.S. President Donald Trump withdrew from the pact and imposed sanctions that severely impacted the Iranian economy. In response, Iran gradually surpassed the enrichment restrictions outlined in the deal.

In conclusion, Israel’s national security adviser clarifies that Israel is not currently planning an attack on Iran’s nuclear sites. The ongoing talks between Iran and the United States are being closely monitored, but any agreement reached will not bind Israel. While the situation remains stable for now, Israel is prepared to defend itself against a regime armed with weapons of mass destruction. The article also highlights the history of the 2015 nuclear deal and the subsequent developments that led to its collapse.
