Iran Days Away From Developing Nuclear Weapons – Israeli Intelligence Reports

Israel’s spy agency (Mossad) and the military intelligence (Aman) believes that Iran can produce nuclear weapons not within a few months, as previously thought, but weeks or even days. And the Islamic Republic, possibly, will produce its own atomic bomb “no less than in a year”.

This was announced today, November 8, by an “informed source” in an interview with the Israeli radio station KAN Reshet-Bet, the news portal Ynet reports.

The signal from the Israeli intelligence community was a reaction to the words of US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo who expressed concern about the “Iranian Nuclear Proliferation’ and called for increased international pressure on Tehran.

“Members of the international community who are fairly apprehensive with Iran’s latest provocations should picture how Iran would behave with a nuclear weapon,” Mike Pompeo said, following the Iranian declaration of the start of phase 4 in its slow withdrawal from the nuclear agreement.

Pompeo confirmed the assessment of Israeli intelligence that was published here a year ago, according to which the Iranians will violate the agreement gradually, in slow steps, that will gradually grow, until they reach a range from which they could break through to a military nuclear program within a few months.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu also expressed concern about recent developments around the Iranian nuclear program. At the same time, the head of the Jewish state’s government made it clear that the reason was not so much Tehran, “whose intentions are well known,” but the international community, which continues to believe in “fables about the Iranian atom’s peaceful program.” 

According to Netanyahu, the Israeli government has repeatedly communicated operational information to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), “testifying to the secret development of nuclear weapons in Iran.”

Iran has already announced the creation of a prototype of the latest centrifuge, which is 50 times greater than the current capabilities. In addition, Tehran already has 60 advanced IR-6 centrifuges that can accelerate uranium enrichment by 7-10 times.

The Israeli intelligence community indicates that modern equipment and accumulated experience allow Iran to produce a nuclear bomb not within a few months, as previously thought, but weeks or even days. 

Due to the fact that the Iranian nuclear program is being implemented in parallel with the missile program, the level of threat is increasing even more, an “informed source” in Israeli intelligence noted.
