On April 30, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused Iran of having a secret program to produce nuclear weapons as well as expanding the range of its nuclear-capable missiles.
According to the statement, Israel has thousands of documents revealing how Iran had allegedly lied to the world after signing the nuclear agreement.
Netanyahu said the evidence provided “new and conclusive proof of the secret nuclear weapons program that Iran has been hiding for years from the international community in its secret atomic archive.”
Netanyahu also revealed “55,000 pages” of documents and “183 CDs” allegedly copied from a “highly secret location” in Iran and detailed an effort to build nuclear arms.
The Israeli prime minister denounced the Iran nuclear deal as a “historic mistake” and claimed that lifting anti-Iran sanctions would allow the country to boost support for its allies throughout the Middle East, including Iranian-backed groups in Syria, Lebanon and Yemen.
Meanwhile, the Israeli media is fueling the tensions further:
Defense and political sources told Russia and the United States, following Iran’s threats to react against attacks on their assets in Syria overnight, that if Iran attacks Israel from Syria, either itself or through its proxy Hezbollah, Jerusalem will not hold back and will respond forcefully, targeting Iranian soil, Haaretz reports.
