The delay in the revival of the 2015 nuclear deal is posing a threat to the region as Israel increases its weaponry capability, Qatar’s former prime minister, Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim Al-Thani (HBJ) warned on Saturday.

“If the parties do not reach a new nuclear deal with Iran, and the United States provides Israel with the weapons it needs, there will be, God forbid, a military action that may shake security and stability in our region and will have dire economic, political and social consequences,” HBJ said in a Twitter thread.

HBJ, who also served as Qatar’s foreign minister, noted that the situation in the “Gulf region has become fraught with dangers and requires everyone to pay constant attention in anticipation of any possibilities.”

“We know that Israel is pushing hard to obtain some equipment and weapons that enable it to strike Iranian targets, which it considers to be a great threat. However, the American side has so far been reluctant to provide Israel with these weapons,” HBJ said.

The tweets come as talks aimed at reviving the nuclear deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), have faced a months-long deadlock.
