A large number of former Israeli military generals and security chiefs have called upon Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to renounce his hostile stance toward the recent nuclear agreement between Iran and six world powers, and accept it.

In a petition signed and publicized on Monday, the officials termed as "fait accompli" the finalization of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) by representatives from Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council – Britain, China, France, Russia and the United States – plus Germany in the Austrian capital, Vienna, on July 14.

The signatories also urged the Tel Aviv regime to follow a policy that would "restore trust and reinforce security and diplomatic cooperation with the American administration."

Ami Ayalon and Carmi Gillon, two former heads of Israel’s Shin Bet internal spy service, Amiram Levin, an ex-deputy director of Mossad, Uzi Eilmann, the former head of Israel’s Atomic Energy Commission together with dozens of retired Israeli generals and top officers were among those who signed the petition.

Netanyahu has launched an acrimonious campaign against the JCPOA, calling it a "historic mistake." The 65-year-old chairman of Israel’s Likud party has been exerting pressure on US Congress to reject Iran’s nuclear agreement. The review period for American legislators expires on September 17.

Under the JCPOA, limits will be put on Iran’s nuclear activities in exchange for, among other things, the removal of all economic and financial bans, against the Islamic Republic.

The Security Council on July 20 unanimously endorsed a draft resolution turning the JCPOA into international law. All 15 members of the world body voted for the draft UN resolution in New York, setting the stage for the lifting of the Security Council sanctions against Iran.
