Iran Vows ‘Surprising’ Response to Israel Amid Nuclear Deal Tensions

Sputnik News – May 1, 2018

Iranian Defense Minister Amir Khatami has commented on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s statement that Israel’s intelligence had obtained thousands of documents proving that Tehran has been secretly developing a nuclear weapons program.

On Tuesday, Khatami slammed Netanyahu’s speech as “Israel’s provocative actions” and promised that Tehran would take actions in response.

“This is our warning to the regime occupying Jerusalem and its supporters – stop your dangerous behavior. The Iranian response will be surprising and you will regret it,” Khatami stressed, as cited by Haaretz.

The comment comes after Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif mocked Netanyahu’s remarks on Twitter, saying that Israel’s revelations came in the run-up to the Trump administration’s planned announcement regarding the Iran nuclear deal on May 12.
