Israeli Defense Minister: Iran Has Amassed Enough Uranium for 5 Nuclear Weapons

(Times of Israel) Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant on Thursday said Iran has amassed enough fissile material for five nuclear bombs. "Make no mistake - Iran will not be satisfied by a single nuclear bomb. So far, Iran has gained material enriched to 20% and 60% for five nuclear bombs," Gallant told his Greek counterpart Nikolaos Panagiotopoulos during a visit to Athens. Western powers warn there can be no civilian use for uranium enriched to such levels. Gallant added: "Over the past six months, Iran has sent aircraft to Syria on a weekly basis, delivering weapons to be used for terrorism....We will not allow Iran to establish military power in Syria, or to build a 'highway' for the delivery of advanced weapons to Lebanon."
