Israel calls for “sanctions crippling” against Iran

Israël appelle à des «sanctions écrasantes» contre l'Iran

Jerusalem | israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu called on Sunday to “sanctions crippling” against Iran, after new evidence of the disengagement iranian agreement on the nuclear and raids attributed to the Hebrew State against pro-iranian.

Iran is the number one enemy of Israel who feared to see his rival developing a nuclear weapon, a missile program of precision from the neighbouring Lebanon, and of military bases on its borders in Syria, where Tehran supports Bashar al-Assad against the various rebellions.

At least 12 fighters pro-iranian, including Iraqis and Afghans, have been killed in air raids on Saturday night against the headquarters of pro-iranian forces in the eastern syrian province of Deir Ezzor, according to the Observatory syrian Human rights (OSDH)

According to the OSDH, the jewish State was “probably” behind the attacks. In recent weeks, the air strikes attributed to Israel have multiplied in Syria without the idf confirms or demented.

“The coronavirus will not affect our determination to act against the aggression of Iran. I want to say it again: Israel will not let Iran obtain a nuclear weapon and will continue to act systematically against its attempts to establish a military presence at our borders,” said Mr Netanyahu at a meeting of the government.

These air raids occurred in the aftermath of the publication of a new report on Friday, the international Energy Agency atomic (IAEA), according to which Iran continues to increase its stock of enriched uranium and continues to block inspection of two ancient sites.

In this context, Israel is urging the international community to join the United States to impose “sanctions crippling” on Iran.

“I think it is time, in fact the time is already past, but it is most certainly time to present in the light of these new revelations that the international community joins the United States and réimpose sanctions crippling Iran,” said Mr. Netanyahu.

This stance complicates efforts to try and save the framework of the international agreement of 2015 on the iranian nuclear issue, including the United States have slammed the door in 2018, and in which Tehran disengages very gradually since may 2019.

In the short term, Israel is trying to convince european countries, including France, to support a draft resolution to extend a un arms embargo against Iran, expiring in October next, indicated to the AFP a diplomatic source in Jerusalem.
