Israel has called on world leaders to forge a military coalition against Iran after the country announced its plans to boost its uranium enrichment capacity within the limits of the 2015 nuclear agreement.

In a letter to the International Atomic Energy Agency, Iran notified the U.N. watchdog of resuming the process of producing UF6 (uranium hexafluoride), a decision that follows a day after Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei  said that Tehran “will not tolerate being under sanctions, while limited in the nuclear field,” reports Al Jazeera.

The development follows a flurry of diplomatic efforts by European states to salvage the nuclear accord after the U.S. recently pulled out of the agreement, notes I24.
