Israel calls for ‘snapback sanctions’ on Iran
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is calling onworld powers to impose "snapback sanctions" on Iran after it crossedthe uranium threshold laid out in the faltering 2015 nuclear deal.
Netanyahu said Sunday that enriching uranium to such levelshas only one purpose — to create atomic bombs.
He says Western leaders had vowed to impose sanction themoment the Islamic Republic crossed that threshold.
The Israeli leader has been one of the harshest critics ofthe nuclear deal. Israel considers Iran to be its most dangerous enemy becauseof its nuclear program and threats to destroy Israel.
Iran made its move amid heightened tensions and a year afterPresident Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew from the deal.
