Iranian officials have said that they could resume 20% enrichment within four days

Iran has formally dropped the limitations on uranium enrichment and heavy water production that it had committed to under a 2015 nuclear accord with world powers, an official from the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran announced on Wednesday as the landmark deal continued to unravel.

Iran's ISNA news agency cited an anonymous official as confirming the move which it said came in accordance with instructions given by Iran’s Supreme National Security Council as part of a recent 60-day ultimatum for renegotiating the pact with remaining signatories -- France, Germany, Britain, Russia, and China -- after the US quit the deal in May 2018.

Tensions have boiled between Washington and Tehran since Iran walked back its commitment to some of the deal's key parameters, frustrated that that punishing US sanctions were preventing it from enjoying the economic fruits of its compliance with the deal. Endquote:

This is BIG news. Iran is now pursuing nuclear goals again ignoring the 2015 Nuclear Deal and propelling itself towards developing weapons capable of destroying Israel. This along with some other hostile attack from one of their proxies might be all thats left to prevent a massive war that we can all see.
