The claim of an Iranian attack "is a lie", said Mohammad Javad Jamali Nobandegani, a member of the Iranian parliament's National Security & Foreign Policy Commission, according to the legislature's website.

Iran struck shortly after President Donald Trump pulled out of the nuclear agreement, raising speculation that it no longer felt constrained by the possibility that the Americans might scrap the deal if Iran attacked Israel. It requires the State Department to report to Congress on what steps dozens of countries in Europe have taken to compensate Holocaust survivors or their heirs for assets seized under Nazi German and Communist rule.

Accordingly, President Trump is correct in working to restore worldwide sanctions, even if major powers like Russian Federation and China have every economic interest to thwart his efforts. "The answer is no", Le Maire told reporters.

Although slogans of "Death to America" were few, many Iranians are sincerely angry over the USA decision to withdraw from the deal and are siding with hard-liners who long have warned to be suspicious of the West. The answer is no. Russia, who is friendly with both countries, urged them to not further provoke each other.

Lieberman said Israel was not seeking escalation on the Syrian front.

Le Drian has condemned the United States move to re-impose sanctions on companies trading with Iran as "unacceptable".

We also now know that Iran's state-funded scientists worked extensively on technology specifically designed for constructing a nuclear bomb, not the peaceful nuclear energy usage Iran has always publicly insisted is the reason for its nuclear research.

Another is that the U.S. would certainly step in were Iran to cross red lines, such as striking major Israeli cities with longer-range missiles.

"We condemn any attempt to harm Israel's security", Le Drian said in an interview in Friday's edition of newspaper Le Parisien.

"It is unbelievable, but 73 years after the Holocaust, there is a country in the Middle East-Iran-that is calling for the destruction of another 6 million Jews", stated Netanyahu.

President Hassan Rouhani had said on Tuesday that Tehran would remain in the deal, provided its benefits stayed in force with its remaining signatories.

Russia's Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov was also quick to call for restraint. "This was by far the largest strike we have done, but it was focused on Iranian sites", he said. This appears to be the first time Iranian forces have directly attacked Israel.

Le Maire said Paris would seek to strengthen Europe's ability to block sanctions and provide investment finance to companies. Trump's strength was that he did not need unity, Beyer added.

The Golan flare-up with Israel "is just further demonstration that the Iranian regime can not be trusted and another good reminder that the president made the right decision to get out of the Iran deal", White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told Fox News.

The U.S. ambassador in Berlin, Richard Grenell, said firms should question the morality of doing business with Iran. Bild newspaper quoted him as saying.

"This event is not over", he said. "That is the task for the future", she said.
