JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Tuesday Israel would not be bound by the nuclear deal between world powers and Iran and would defend itself.

Appearing before the television cameras to make a statement in which he underlined Israel’s disappointment in the deal that he described as a “stunning, historic, mistake”, he said:

“Israel is not bound by this deal with Iran because Iran continues to seek our destruction. We will always defend ourselves.”
