The Sunni-dominated UAE signed an historic, US-brokered peace settlement with Israel in September. The deal was anticipated to achieve Abu Dhabi entry to buying extra superior weaponry from Washington, ratcheting up tensions with predominantly Shia Iran.
Tehran has vowed “extreme revenge” for the killing of Fakhrizadeh. The UN has urged Iran and different events to point out restraint and keep away from any rash strikes in response to the assassination.
Israel claimed in 2018 that Fakhrizadeh headed Iran’s nuclear weapons growth undertaking, known as Amad. Iranian officers have repeatedly insisted that the nation’s nuclear investments are for peaceable functions solely, and the Worldwide Atomic Power Company mentioned the Amad program ended within the early 2000s.
