"It's morning edition from NPR News. I'm Noel King and I'm Steve Inskeep. Good morning. Somebody sabotaged in Iranian nuclear site over the weekend. NPR news has no independent confirmation of who may be responsible for damage that Iran announced But it's important Natanz nuclear facility. But Israeli media quickly reported that Israel was responsible for this attack happened. Justice the United States is discussing rejoining a nuclear deal with Iran. MPR's Daniel astronauts following the story from Jerusalem. Hey there, Daniel. Good morning, and I guess we should note. It's important what Israeli media say because we presume they're well connected with sources inside the Israeli government. So what do you hear and see an Israeli media? Right, well, Israeli media outlets very quickly reported Israel was responsible, citing anonymous intelligence officials. There have been other attacks similar to this one. In the past. There was a disruption last year at Natanz. There had been assassinations of Iranian scientists Israel blamed for those but never took the credit for those this time is different. And there's some speculation here that could Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will be leaking this to create a sense of urgency around Iran to help him politically form a new government. And could this be a dangerous escalation of tensions with Iran? The other question is, did the US know ahead of time about this attack? It happened as Defense secretary Lloyd Austin was in Israel. The White House says the U. S. Had no involvement. Okay, so it is not automatic that if his real attacks in Iranian site that it's some kind of effort to sabotage talks between the United States and Iran, because the whole idea of the talks is for Iran not to have too much of a nuclear program, But let's just play out that Possibility. Could Israel be out to in some way damage the U. S effort to get back into the nuclear deal. I think you can interpret it in a few different ways. And Israeli defense official told me based on the reports that the attacks did setback operations at this enrichment facility many months. That official says Well, now Iran's nuclear progress appears to be delayed so the world doesn't need to rush back to the old nuclear deal. Let's work out a different strategy. And Israel is worried about Iran getting sanctions relief worried about going back to the old nuclear deal of worried about Iran growing stronger because Israel because Iran is Israel's biggest strategic threat, Iran has threatened Israel it has supported Israel's enemies. No, the other way to look at this it is, you know, the attack on the nuclear facility doesn't delay a deal. It could actually speed up a deal because Iran does seem to want to keep diplomacy on track. Iran's foreign minister is saying this attack will only strengthen Iran's position in the negotiations, and the White House also wants to get back to the original nuclear deal as a starting point. It wants to lower tensions with Iran. It just it wants to turn to Other issues like China and Russia. And, you know, I spoke to a former ambassador to U S. T O Israel, Dan Shapiro, and he tells me that in the original nuclear talks under Obama That fear of of Israeli military action was actually an argument. The U. S used to push a diplomatic solution basically saying, Hey, you never know what the Israelis conduce. Oh, let's get to a deal. Guess we should note that Benjamin Netanyahu was prime minister of Israel was not thought to get along very well with President Obama was thought to get along very well with President Trump. What about President Biden? That remains may be too soon to tell. I mean, Israel and the U. S are holding talks on Iran. It's important to Israel that have that output or to have that input in the negotiations. Nevertheless, Netanyahu has proven that he can counter a U. S president openly on Iran. He did that with Obama when he went to Congress and opposed the nuclear deal. But Antonio knows if he wants to keep having that input with the U. S on these negotiations, he cannot thwart us efforts. Daniel, Thanks for the analysis really appreciate it. Sure thing. That's NPR's Daniel Estrin in Jerusalem. It's morning edition from NPR News. I'm Steve Inskeep. And I'm Noel King. And I'm Cherry Glazer and you are listening.
