Israel has postponed joint military maneuvers with the US, which were supposed to begin in the Negev in the next few months, due to budgetary constraints, JTA reports (from an Israeli source) and "The Atlantic" reports (from senior Pentagon officials). According to these reports, it was Israel that initiated the postponement of the maneuvers and not the US, as the Israeli media had claimed.
Operation Austere Challenge 12 was going to be the largest US-Israeli joint exercise in history.

GENEVA — Iran agreed on Thursday in talks with the United States and other major powers to open its newly revealed uranium enrichment plant near Qum to international inspection in the next two weeks and to send most of its openly declared enriched uranium outside Iran to be turned into fuel for a small reactor that produces medical isotopes, senior American and other Western officials said.
Several top commanders in Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards have been killed in a suicide bombing in the volatile south-east of the country.
