Israeli Defence Minister Benny Gantz asserted that “Iran is training its proxies from Iraq, Yemen, Lebanon and Syria to employ advanced UAVs, in a base called Kashan, north of the city of Isfahan. They employ UAVs with a range of thousands of kilometres… Kashan base is a key point from which Iranian aerial terrorism is exported to the region”. Gantz also contended that “Iran does not respect the [nuclear] agreements it has signed, and there’s no reason to believe it will respect any agreements it will sign in the future… I call on all of the countries that are still party to the nuclear agreement to put in place the permanent sanctions that are in the deal. This is the time for a ‘snapback’”.
