U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu give a statement after their meeting in Jerusalem on April 12, 2021.

JERUSALEM - U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin is in Israel Monday, meeting with Israeli officials about Iran. The meeting comes as a power failure at the Iranian nuclear site of Natanz reportedly caused massive damage to Iranian centrifuges. Iranian officials blamed Israel and threatened to avenge the attack.


Israel rarely takes responsibility for attacks like the one in Natanz that Israeli news reports on Monday said could set the Iranian nuclear program back by nine months. But the Israeli army Chief of Staff, Aviv Kochavi, hinted Israel may have been involved.


Kochavi said the Israeli army’s activities in the Middle East "are not hidden from the eyes of the enemy, that they are watching us, they see our capabilities.”
