Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu delivers a speech on Iran's nuclear program in Tel Aviv on April 30, 2018.

UN Nuclear Watchdog Finds Traces of Uranium at Iranian Site Revealed by Israel

The United Nations’ atomic watchdog reportedly found traces of uranium at a facility in Tehran exposed by Israel. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu last year revealed details of the “secret atomic warehouse” following a Mossad operation that recovered thousands of documents apparently proving the Islamic Republic had worked toward producing a nuclear weapon. The archive showed that Tehran had created a program – “Project Amad” – that aimed to “design, produce and test five warheads, each with [a] 10-kiloton TNT yield for integration on a missile,” according to text uncovered in one of the retrieved files. UN inspectors arrived in Iran this week after the regime announced it was reducing its commitments to a 2015 nuclear deal. US National Security Adviser John Bolton demanded an immediate explanation, which the International Atomic Energy Agency has yet to provide. Over the weekend, a spokesman for Iran’s atomic agency confirmed that his organization had “started lifting limitations on our research and development imposed by the [nuclear] deal… [which] will include development of more rapid and advanced centrifuges.”
