US Issues Rare Warning To Israel
MONDAY, APR 19, 2021 - 06:10 PM
The US has issued a rare warning to its closest Mideast ally Israel over its escalating actions against Iran amid ongoing nuclear talks in Vienna.

Israeli media reports that the Biden administration in backchannel communications has voiced "displeasure" not only with recent covert attacks - particularly the April 11 incident at the Natanz nuclear site - but its willingness to 'leak' its culpability to the public. According to Israel's YNet News:

Washington has informed Jerusalem of its displeasure over recent attacks against Iranian targets attributed to Israel, as well as what it called "boasting" by Israel regarding these incidents, sources said.

Immediately after the Natanz blackout incident, which is believed to have destroyed crucial Iranian centrifuges, setting back operations there by months, the Biden administration sought to distance itself from the sabotage.

However, Israeli intelligence essentially owned up to it in an intentional "leak" to The New York Times. But some commentators are pointing out that Israel has been forthright from day one, saying openly that it intends to do everything possible to prevent a new JCPOA nuclear deal from forming.

Tel Aviv has long believed the Iranians will build a bomb under cover of the JCPOA.
