U.S. President Donald Trump last week sought options for attacking the Natanz nuclear site in Iran, after the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) reported an increase in the country’s stockpile of nuclear material, sources told The New York Times on Monday.

According to the NYT, Vice President Mike Pence, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Acting Defense Secretary Christopher C. Miller and Joint Chiefs of Staff. chairman Gen. Mark A. Milley dissuaded Trump from pursuing such an option, on the grounds that an attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities could escalate into a larger conflict.
