Israel anticipates that the US Congress will heed its call and vote down the Iran nuclear deal against the wishes of the Obama administration, the head of the powerful Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee told Israel Radio on Tuesday.

"I'm convinced that the American Congress will reject by a large majority the nuclear agreement with Iran," MK Tzachi Hanegbi (Likud) said. "There is a plethora of explanations and reasons as to why the agreement weakens the United States."
