Iran warns it may change nuclear weapons stance in face of Israel, US announces sanctions

Iran

The U.S. has announced new sanctions on Iran, targeting its unmanned aerial vehicle production, following Tehran’s warning to reconsider its stance on nuclear weapons if its atomic facilities face attack. The recent actions come after Iran’s missile and drone assault on Israel over the weekend.

Iran’s Senior Revolutionary Guards commander, Major General Ahmad Haghtalab, indicated that Iran would review its nuclear policy in response to direct attacks on its nuclear facilities by Israel. This statement contrasts with Iran’s previous insistence that its nuclear program is for civilian energy purposes only.

In response to Iran’s attack on Israel, the U.S. has imposed sanctions on Iranian companies involved in drone manufacturing, as well as suppliers and customers of key industries tied to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and the defense ministry. President Joe Biden emphasized the U.S.’s commitment to Israel’s security and announced plans to further pressure Iran’s military industries through additional sanctions.

The U.K. also imposed sanctions on Iran’s drone and ballistic missile sectors, condemning the attack as a reckless escalation of regional conflict. The coordinated sanctions were announced as foreign ministers from G7 nations convened in Italy.

The article discusses the latest developments in the ongoing tensions between Iran and Israel, highlighting the diplomatic and economic measures taken by the U.S. and its allies in response to Iran’s aggressive actions.
