Iran’s sponsorship of terrorist groups and activities has 'only increased' in the year since Tehran reached a nuclear deal with world powers, Matthew Levitt, director of the Washington Institute’s counterterrorism and intelligence program, wrote in a policy analysis published Friday.

The Shurat HaDin - Israel Law Center, an Israeli legal rights NGO, on Thursday threatened to place liens against any planes that the American aerospace giant Boeing plans to sell to Iran, unless Iran compensates victims of Iranian-sponsored terror attacks.

The Senate passed a bill granting it oversight of the Iran nuclear deal after the White House conceded it could not prevent Congress from weighing in.

Lest some mistakenly believe otherwise, the sanctions against Iran are indeed taking their toll on the Iranian economy. This could create more pressure on Iran's leaders to give in to Israel's demand to dismantle its nuclear program.
