Report: US Warns Israel Covert Attacks on Iran are ‘Counterproductive’

According to a report from The New York Times, the US has warned Israel against launching cover attacks against Iran’s civilian nuclear program, calling them “counterproductive.” But Israeli officials said they have no intention of “letting up.”

The report said over the past 20 months, four explosions at Iranian facilities have been attributed to Israel. Last November, Israel assassinated Iranian scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh inside Iran. The US has refused to condemn any of these attacks, giving them a tacit endorsement and raising questions over potential US involvement.

Iran has responded to Israel’s more recent attacks by increasing uranium enrichment and stopping voluntary cooperation with certain aspects of the JCPOA. After the Fakhrizadeh assassination, Iran’s parliament passed a law requiring some 20 percent uranium enrichment and for Iran to stop complying with the Additional Protocol, a JCPOA measure that allowed the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to conduct snap inspections.
