Israel Hails EU Decision to Sanction Iran

JERUSALEM – The Israeli ministry of foreign affairs hailed on Wednesday the European Union’s decision to sanction Iran’s intelligence service for the Iran’s alleged involvement in several attacks on EU territory.

The EU is to freeze the assets and funds of two Iranian nationals and the Islamic Republic’s intelligence entity following accusations of Iranian involvement in assassinations and attacks in a number of EU countries, according to an EU statement.

“The Council added two Iranian individuals and the Directorate for Internal Security of the Iranian Ministry for Intelligence and Security to the EU terrorist list. These listings have been adopted by the Council as part of its response to recent foiled attacks on the European soil,” EU said in a statement.

“This is an important first step by the EU, combating Iranian aggression,” Israeli ministry of foreign affairs said on its official Twitter account.

The Israeli foreign ministry added that the implementation of new sanctions would serve as a motive for several countries to “take an active, clear stand against Iran’s global campaign of terrorism.”

In May 2018, United States President Donald Trump pulled out of the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and several world powers, a decision that was championed by Iran’s regional foe Israel.

Israel sees the current regime in Iran and its support for Shia groups across the Middle East region, including Hezbollah in neighboring Lebanon, as a security threat.
