Israel began sharing an intelligence trove on Iran's alleged nuclear ambitions Tuesday, but Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu faced accusations his televised unveiling of it lacked evidence a 2015 accord had been violated.Netanyahu's elaborate presentation live on television Monday night came ahead of a crucial decision by U.S. President Donald Trump by May 12 on whether to withdraw from the nuclear agreement between world powers and Iran.Some analysts and proponents of the nuclear agreement also said Netanyahu had presented previously known details and failed to produce evidence that showed Iran was not abiding by the accord.France's foreign ministry said Tuesday Netanyahu's claims reinforced the importance of the nuclear deal.In Monday night's presentation, Netanyahu accused Iran of lying about its nuclear ambitions, saying Israel had recently obtained tens of thousands of files in a "great intelligence achievement".Others argued it failed to show the nuclear accord was a "terrible deal," as Netanyahu called it, with some saying his presentation in fact furthered the case for the agreement.
