President Donald Trump is expected to pull the United States out of the Iran nuclear agreement on May 12 .Iran has since helped arm and train thousands of Shiite fighters in Iraq.Israel says Iran has recruited at least 80,000 Shiite fighters.If the nuclear deal falls through, Iran will have little incentive to stop its Shiite militia allies in Syria from carrying out attacks against Israel.Israeli forces have repeatedly attacked Hezbollah in Syria, where the group is leading many of Iran's Shiite militia allies.Hezbollah said last year that any war waged by Israel against Syria and Lebanon could draw thousands of fighters from countries including Iran and Iraq, indicating that Shiite militias could come to Lebanon to help Hezbollah.If the nuclear deal falls through, Iran could pressure Hezbollah to isolate its opponents, a development experts believe could destabilize Lebanon.Under the current deal, Iran's enrichment levels must remain around 3.6 percent.
