Tensions are running high in the Middle East again after a suspected Israeli attack on an Iranian nuclear facility and another wave of aerial strikes against targets in Saudi Arabia by Yemen's Houthi rebels. Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif blamed Israel for the weekend attack on Iran's main uranium enrichment plant in Natanz and he vowed revenge. Power was cut off at the plant shortly after it started to use advanced centrifuges to enrich uranium. Tehran described the incident as an act of "nuclear terrorism." "The Zionists want to take revenge because of our progress in the way to lift sanctions. ... We will not fall into their trap. ... We will not allow this act of sabotage to affect the nuclear talks," Zarif was quoted by Iranian state TV as saying. Strike Coincides With US-Iran Talks
