Yadlin: First Iran Nuke Bomb Likely on the Way
At a meeting Tuesday of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, Military Intelligence chief Amos Yadlin told Mks that his group has discovered two new nuclear installations in Iran. “Iran declared it would set up ten new nuclear facilities, and Military Intelligence has identified two of them.” He added that the IDF knew much more about Iran's nuclear program than in the past, and that most of the “black holes” in Iran's deployment had been filled in. He added that soon Iran would have enough uranium now for at least one nuclear bomb.
Yadlin also said that Israel's enemies were preparing for a new war, and would attack on at least two fronts, “if not more. We cannot draw any conclusions about future battles from the Second Lebanon War or from Cast Lead, but we can say a future war will be more massive and widespread, with many more casualties.” With that, he said, Israel was able to outmaneuver its enemies using technology and intelligence.
