Prime Minister Bennett is holding discussions on Israel’s Iran policies and has ordered a review of the matter ahead of his first meeting with US President Joe Biden expected later this month, Axios reports.

“There are several questions in the discussions,” an unnamed Israeli official says. “Is the current treading water better or worse than a US return to the deal, if and how Israel can influence the Biden administration, and what the current situation means for developing an Israeli military option?”
