US, Israel sign secret agreement to counter Iranian threat”

The secret agreement was reportedly signed on December 12 at the White House following talks led by Israel's National Security Council head Meir Ben-Shabat and US National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster.

A US official told Axios the document goal's was to translate President Donald Trump's speech on Iran in October into U.S.

Tillerson has said that the Iran nuclear deal, JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action), is no longer the focal point of America's policy toward Tehran. The second and third teams would aim to deal with Iran's nuclear goals and the country's missile system.

Obama's policy had the opposite effect: in withdrawing some support from Israel, the previous administration signaled that the US would no longer stand with its allies in general, which strengthened Iran's hand in the region.

The United States (US) and Israel have reached a cooperation agreement on dealing with Iran.

The Islamic Republic's support of Hezbollah in Lebanon and its alleged involvement in Iraq, Yemen and Syria plus its outright support of the Syria's Bashar Assad and its controversial ballistic missile program are some of the reasons U.S. accuses Iran of violating the spirit of JCPOA.
