In a press conference on Monday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said it’s clear Iran plans to manufacture nuclear weapons.

Netanyahu also promised that Israel will not allow Iran to continue violating the 2015 nuclear deal, which called for Tehran to shut down its nuclear program.

“There is no other explanation except for the continued realization of Iran’s intention to manufacture nuclear weapons,” Netanyahu said. “I reiterate: Israel will not allow Iran to manufacture nuclear weapons.”

This came after Iran announced it had resumed 20 percent uranium enrichment. Experts said this development puts Tehran one step closer to enrich uranium at 90 percent, which is required to produce a nuclear weapon.
