According to the Associated Press, Israel’s military chief warned the Biden administration from rejoining the one sided Iran Nuclear Deal, even if stricter rules are put in place. Adding that the military forces are setting up preparations for a possible offensive action against the terror state.
Lt. Gen. Aviv Kohavi, who is the Chief of General Staff of the Israel Defense Forces, made these comments as Israel and Iran put pressure on Joe Biden on his approach to reenter the 2015 Iranian nuclear program.
Kohavi said that if Iran was to move forward with its nuclear weapons program it would cause “an unacceptable threat and will lead to nuclear proliferation across the region.”
“I have instructed the army to prepare a number of operational plans in addition to the existing ones. We are taking care of these plans and will develop them during the coming year. Those who decide on carry them out, of course, are the political leaders. But these plans have to be on the table,” Kohavi said.
The 2015 Iran nuclear deal lifted the crippling economic sanctions in exchange for an agreement from Iran to limit their nuclear program and allow international inspectors into the country, however the deal also destabilized the region and it puts our allies at risk and it would make it easier for Tehran to keep its vast nuclear infrastructure and its missile program.
Israel in the past has accused Iran of breaking the brokered agreements and they welcomed the move by former President Donald Trump to abandon the deal in 2018.
Earlier this month, according to The Daily Caller, Iran threatened a “decisive response” to any action taken by Israel after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu pledged to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons.
