Trump ends Iran Deal and everything went wrong

President Donald Trump on Tuesday announced the US government’s withdrawal from the Iran deal, marking one of the biggest foreign-policy decisions of his tenure so far.

Trump complained the Iran deal supplied the “murderous” Iranian regime with “billions” of dollars and said allowing the deal to stand would be “unacceptable” and catalyze a nuclear-arms race in the Middle East.

The president has long criticized the Iran deal, which was orchestrated by the Obama administration and aimed to restrict Iran’s ability to develop nuclear weapons in exchange for the easing of harsh economic sanctions.

Nine pro-Syrian fighters were reportedly killed in an Israeli airstrike near the Syrian capital of Damascus on Tuesday, shortly after Israeli forces determined “abnormal movements of Iranian forces” in Syria.

Tensions are elevated because Israel and Iran are in the middle of fighting a shadow war in Syria. As President Trump withdrew the United States from the Iran nuclear deal, Israel put itself on “high alert,” as they were afraid Iran will retaliate against Israel with military force after Trump’s decision.

Israel and Iran fire confrontation

Israel stated 20 rockets were launched in Syria by Iranian forces to strike Israel territories. Some of them were destroyed by Israel’s Iron Dome defense system.

Iran hasn’t commented on Israeli military strikes but noted that it’s the first time Iranian forces fired rockets directly at Israeli-claimed territories.

In a response to the , Israel has struck almost all of Iran’s military infrastructure in Syria.
