Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu revealed Monday evening conclusive proof of a secret project underway in Iran for the development of a nuclear weapon, evidence that proves that Tehran had lied “big time” to the international community.
A few weeks ago, in a great intel achievement, Israel obtained half a ton of Iran’s nuclear weapons program archive. Iran’s goal was to design, produce and test 5 warheads, each with 10 kiloton TNT yield for integration on a missile.
Calling it a “great intelligence achievement,” Netanyahu said that the documents show that Iran lied about its nuclear ambitions before signing a 2015 deal with world powers.
Iran has denied ever seeking nuclear weapons.
In a nationally televised address, Netanyahu said Israel recently uncovered 55,000 documents and 183 CDs of information from Iran’s “nuclear archives.”
Speaking in English, he says the material is filled with incriminating evidence showing the Iranian program, called “Project Amad,” was to develop a weapon.
Israel now has “incriminating documents, incriminating charts, incriminating presentations, incriminating blueprints, incriminating photos, incriminating videos and more,” PM Netanyahu said.
President Donald Trump is to decide by May 12 whether to pull out of the international deal with Iran. Netanyahu has led calls for Trump to withdraw.
