Israel 'utterly rejects' emerging Iran deal

JERUSALEM (AP) — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Friday that he ‘‘utterly rejects’’ the emerging nuclear deal between western powers and Iran, calling it a ‘‘bad deal’’ and promising that Israel will do everything it needs to do to defend itself.

Israel believes Iran is trying to develop a nuclear weapon, and says international pressure should be stepped up, not eased, in order to force Iran to dismantle its nuclear program. Netanyahu has repeatedly threatened to attack Iran, unilaterally if necessary, if he concludes that diplomatic pressure on Iran has failed.
