Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday that the decision by US President Donald Trump to end waivers for energy companies that deal with Iran “is a decision of major importance.”

Netanyahu, who was visiting Capernaum with his wife Sara, said “this is the way to confront Iranian aggression, this is the way to prevent it,” the Office of the Prime Minister said in a press release.

The White House officially announced Monday the intention to end sanctions waivers to eights countries that are still trading oil with Iran, increasing the "Maximum pressure" campaign on the Islamic Republic.

Current exemptions are set to expire in early May. "This decision is intended to bring Iran’s oil exports to zero, denying the regime its principal source of revenue," the White House said in a statement.
