As U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and Iran’s foreign minister announced earlier this week that they intend to complete a framework next month on the Iranian nuclear program, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said it was a bad deal. Netanyahu said the deal would allow Iran to arm itself with nuclear weapons.
Also this week in Israel in the News:
• A ceasefire agreement set to begin Sunday has been reached between Ukrainian government forces and pro-Russian separatists.
• Top Democratic congressional leaders have announced plans to be absent when Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu addresses the Congress early next month.
• President Obama has asked Congress to approve military action to fight ISIS.
