Netanyahu Touring European Capitals to Press for Renewed Sanctions on Iran

(Ynet News) Ron Ben-Yishai - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has recently visited Paris, Rome, Berlin, and soon London.

Netanyahu has stressed that the military cooperation between Russia and Iran is designed to improve the accuracy and range of Iranian-made payload-carrying drones to target the Ukrainians. That will not only serve to prolong the war in Ukraine, but make it easier for the Iranians to endanger shipping routes from the Persian Gulf to Europe. However, no European leader has signaled real willingness to reinstall the sanctions or make any independent moves on the issue.
