US withdraws from Iran nuclear pact.
This Tuesday President Trump announced that US withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, known as the "Iran nuclear deal." The move had been long expected. Under the deal, finalized in July 2015, Iran undertook to limit or delay certain aspects of its nuclear weapons program. On April 30th of this year US and Israeli authorities stated that Iran had failed to disclose a past covert nuclear program to International Atomic Energy Agency inspectors (New York Times). Observers note that Iranian cyber operations had receded somewhat since the deal was concluded. They're expected to pick up again.
