Israeli PM Claims Proof Iran Spied on IAEA

Says Israel stole hundred page plan from Iran

Last week, Israel accused Iran of having secretly spied on the IAEA, stealing documents to know what the IAEA was interested in, claiming they used it to cover-up a weapons program. Iran denied that this was the case.

Israeli PM Naftali Bennett doubled down on the allegations Tuesday claiming that he knew it was true because he was holding the documentation in his hands.

Bennett said that there were over 100 pages of Persian language pages of specific plots on what they were doing. Israel is said to have stolen the documents from Iran.

This is an unusual reaction, as Israel is often accusing Iran of things without providing evidence, and rarely does anything following Iran’s denial. In this case, however, Israel has been documented to have stolen enormous amounts of data from Iran, which they have cited in the past, so it would make sense they’d have something to back this allegation up with.
