This attack occurred before the ink on the JCPOA nuclear agreement has dried and provided a clear indication of how Iran intends to continue to pursue its destabilizing actions and policies as the international sanctions regime is withdrawn.

On Thursday (20th August) in the late afternoon, four rockets were fired from Syrian territory and struck the northern Galilee and the Golan Heights in Israel. This was an indiscriminate and premeditated terrorist attack against Israeli territory without any provocation from the Israeli side.
We have credible information that the attack was carried out by the Palestinian Islamic Jihad organization and was facilitated and directed by an Iranian operative Saeed Izaadhi who heads the Palestinian unit in the IRGC Qods force.
This is another clear and blatant demonstration of Iran’s continued and unabating support and involvement in terrorist attacks against Israel and in the region in general.
This attack has also occurred before the ink on the JCPOA nuclear agreement has even dried and provided a clear indication of how Iran intends to continue to pursue its destabilizing actions and policies as the international sanctions regime is withdrawn in the near future.
The international community led by the P5+1 cannot enable Iran to gain respectability and political legitimacy from the JCPOA, while in parallel it continues to actively and directly perpetrate terror throughout the region.
These acts are in complete violation of UNSCR 1373 and other mandatory U.N. Security Council resolutions. They are also a clear indication of how Iran will continue to undermine regional security, its commitments under the JCPOA and UNSCR 2231 that endorsed the plan of action.
