As talks on a return to the Iran Nuclear Deal are set to resume in Vienna, several Israeli senior defense officials were reported by Ynet to be breaking from the stated position of the Israeli government and now supported reviving the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
Israel may approve a reportedly US-negotiated deal to transfer Iranian oil to Syria, according to Channel 12 news.
As stalled talks between Tehran and the world powers to revive the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) are set to resume in Vienna in the coming days, three oil-laden tankers are reportedly already heading for Syria.
The vessels are being thus utilized ostensibly as part of an easing of sanctions against Tehran ahead of talks.
Israeli officials would throw their support behind the Iran oil transfer deal on the condition that there was full supervision by the US amid transparency on the part of Tehran, added the report.
Tel Aviv has accused the Islamic Republic of providing weaponry including advanced rockets and drones to its regional allies, including Hezbollah in Lebanon, and Hamas and Islamic Jihad in Gaza.
Guarantees that the mechanism would not be used to transfer arms shipments to Syria or Lebanon’s Hezbollah group would be the only way to reconcile Tel Aviv with the arrangement, added the report.
