Israel’s military is continuing to develop its ability to conduct a military strike against Iran’s nuclear program should circumstances demand it.
After a five-month hiatus, indirect talks between the United States and Iran are set to resume on Monday, with the other parties to the nuclear deal mediating in hope of reestablishing an agreement to curb the Islamic Republic’s nuclear ambitions.
