(AP) — Iran’s president has called his country’s decision to dramatically increase its uranium enrichment after saboteurs attacked a nuclear site “an answer to your evilness.” President Hassan Rouhani says Israel hoped to derail ongoing talks aimed at reviving Tehran’s tattered nuclear deal with world powers. This weekend’s sabotage at the Natanz nuclear facility appears to be part of an escalating shadow war between the two countries. Israel has not commented on the attack but is widely suspected of having carried it out. Iran announced Tuesday it would increase uranium enrichment up to 60%, its highest level ever. That could see further retaliation as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed never to allow Tehran to obtain a nuclear weapon.
