Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu: “Israel has the right to defend itself against Iranian nuclear attack” | Abroad

Israel and the United States have long been concerned about Iran’s recently ramped up uranium enrichment. Both countries fear that Iran will use this uranium to develop nuclear weapons. According to Netanyahu, Iran’s goal is to destroy Israel. “Nothing will prevent us from defending our country and preventing our enemies from destroying the Jewish state,” he said.

However, according to Rafael Grossi, the chief executive of the IAEA, there will be additional controls on Iran’s nuclear facilities. There is no drawn plan yet. Iran has already announced that it will not allow foreign inspectors access to its nuclear facilities. According to the IAEA, this would include extra camera surveillance. It was deported by Iran in the past, but will now be used again.
