Flow of Iranian Crude Oil into the markets: Will Israel turn the tap off?

As Iran preparing itself for making its presence in the crude oil market again, without being hampered by a myriad of sanctions, Israel dashed the hopes of the former by implying that would not be that easy. Lt. Gen. Aviv Kohavi, the chief of Israeli defence force, did not mince his words, when he outlined his plans: he said he ordered the defence forces to make preparations for offensive action against Iran next year; he did not want the Biden administration to revive the 2015 nuclear deal
