IDF: Iran could have a nuclear bomb on a missile in less than 2 years
BREAKING: The IDF estimates that Iran will be able to assemble a nuclear bomb on a missile in less than two years and that it will have enough enriched material for a nuclear bomb in less than a year.
Over the past year, Iran slowly but surely ramped up its stockpile of enriched uranium beyond a limit established in a 2015 nuclear agreement with world powers, a deal from which President Trump withdrew.
Iran has gradually lifted all limits on its production of enriched uranium, which can be used to make reactor fuel but also nuclear weapons.
The nuclear deal limited Iran to using only 5,060 first-generation IR-1 centrifuges to enrich uranium by rapidly spinning uranium hexafluoride gas.
Tehran has gone from producing some 450 grams of low-enriched uranium a day to 5 kilograms.
Britain, France and Germany have kickstarted a process that could lead to UN sanctions being reimposed on Iran and the collapse of the 2015 nuclear deal, after triggering the deal’s dispute resolution mechanism.
PM Netanyahu on Sunday, at the start of the weekly Cabinet meeting, called on Britain, France and Germany to join the American effort.
“I commend President Trump for imposing new and very harsh sanctions against this regime. I must say that this was also done close to the Iranian decision to accelerate uranium enrichment”.
“I call on Britain, France and Germany to join the American effort. They need to go to the Security Council, and there they need to activate the sanctions that have been decided upon”.
“I would like to reiterate: Israel will not allow Iran to develop nuclear weapons”, Netanyahu said.
