US, 5 Nations Approve Nuclear Deal With Iran

While the United States and five other countries have approved the nuclear deal with Iran, Israel and many American pro-Israel groups remain strongly opposed. On Monday, the United Nations Security Council unanimously approved the deal. The U.S. Congress is expected to vote on the deal in mid-September.

Also this week in Israel in the News:

• Some international nuclear experts question the verification process included in the deal, saying Iran could still perform undetected small-scale weapons research.
• Israeli warplanes struck targets in the Gaza Strip after the latest barrage of rockets from Gaza.
• Lou Lenart, a U.S. Marine Corps pilot and Israeli war hero, died at his home in Israel at 94.

This week’s Israel in the News Perspective features Yonit Rothchild on speaking out in defense of Israel.
