UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Monday Tehran was developing nuclear weapons at a secret site in Abadah, Iran.
This is the first time that Netanyahu has identified the site, which he said was discovered in a series of Iranian documents previously acquired by Israel and revealed last year.
“At this site, Iran has conducted tests to develop nuclear weapons,” Netanyahu said, adding that it was located south of the Iranian city of Isfahan.
He reported that Iran destroyed the site when it realized that Israel had discovered it.
Netanyahu’s comments came a day after Reuters revealed that the International Atomic Energy Agency had found traces of uranium at another location and had not yet been explained by Iran.
