North Korea provided nuclear know-how or weapons hardware to six countries in the Middle East, Israel told a nuclear watchdog.

Israel’s envoy to the International Economic Energy Agency did not name the nations when he made the accusation Saturday at the 145-nation assembly meeting in Vienna. Iran and Syria, both currently under IAEA investigation, are likely on the list.

The IAEA unanimously adopted a resolution warning North Korea not to revive its nuclear program.

The assembly has also targeted Israel in draft resolutions sponsored by Arab countries, which are demanding that the Jewish state join the Non-Proliferation Treaty and submit to IAEA inspections.
