Israel has condemned the international community’s deal with Iran on its nuclear program, calling it a “historic mistake”.

“What was reached last night in Geneva is not a historic agreement, it is a historic mistake. Today the world became a much more dangerous place because the most dangerous regime in the world made a significant step in obtaining the most dangerous weapons in the world”, said Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, cited by Fox News.

The country’s Minister of Intelligence, Yuval Steinitz added that the deal was based on “Iranian deception and international self-delusion”.

The deal signed earlier on Sunday will lift part of the economic sanctions on Iran for a period of 6 months, while the Islamic Republic vows to cooperate with the international nuclear observers and to limit its enrichment of uranium.

Israel is skeptical of Iran’s claims that its nuclear program is solely for peaceful purposes. It has also threatened Iran with military strike as a preemptive measure against the acquirement of a nuclear weapon.
