Iran nuclear deal will ‘fuel terrorism’: Benjamin Netanyahu

Florence: The deal to curb Iran’s nuclear programme will bolster Tehran’s ability to fund global terrorism by providing the Islamic state with “billions of dollars” in sanctions relief, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has declared.

“Iran will get hundreds of billions of dollars from sanctions relief and investments to fuel its aggression and terrorism in the Middle East and North Africa and beyond,” Netanyahu, who is bitterly opposed to the deal agreed by Iran and world powers in July, said during a visit to the Italian city of Florence.
