Conflict in the Middle East

JERUSALEM (AP) -- The U.S. Department of the Treasury's sanctions chief is visiting Israel amid concerns in Jerusalem over the nuclear deal with Iran.

It said in a statement that Adam Szubin, the Acting Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence, will be meet senior Israeli officials during his four-day visit that begins Friday. It said he will discuss details of the deal signed by the U.S. and five world powers over Iran's contentious nuclear program.

The agreement seeks to keep Iran from building a nuclear bomb in exchange for international sanctions relief.

Israel adamantly opposes the deal and its objection has put it at odds with the U.S, its closest ally.

Critics say the Iran deal makes too many concessions and could eventually allow for a nuclear-armed Iran.
