This comes after Iran threatened to officially and gradually retreat from some of its obligations under the nuclear agreement reached with the major powers in 2015.
Israel's reaction In the first reaction from Israel to this move by Iran, Mossad chief Yossi Cohen said today at the Herzliya conference that Iran has not yet abandoned its nuclear ambitions.
He pledged to make every effort to ensure that Tehran does not have nuclear capabilities.
Cohen said that over the past four years, Israel has carried out a series of activities, mostly hidden and open, to prevent Iran from being militarily stationed in Syria.
The head of the Mossad said that the Iranian threat created an opportunity to reach regional understandings with many Arab countries that would lead to a comprehensive peace.
