Israel is concerned about the prospect of a renewed Iran nuclear deal, Channel 12 news reports, after the EU’s top diplomat announced negotiations on restoring the 2015 accord are due to resume in the coming days.

“If it’s signed, the current deal is very bad for Israel,” an unnamed senior security official told the network.

“[The agreement] is limited to 2.5 years and will allow Iran economic prosperity that will cause its military capabilities in the Middle East to advance,” the official added.
