Report: Israel spied on confidential Iran nuclear talks, leaked information

Israel allegedly spied on closed-door negotiations world powers were holding with Iran on its nuclear program, the Wall Street Journal reported Monday, quoting White House officials.

According to the report, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government also gathered information from confidential US briefings, informants and diplomatic contacts in Europe.

The Journal reports that the Obama administration was less concerned with the fact Israel spied on the talks and more concerned by Israel leaking this confidential information to American lawmakers and others in order to build a case against the deal being negotiated.
