Fears about Iran’s nuclear program have erupted, prompting Israel to issue a worrying new alarm as a ‘critical point’ has been breached.
ISRAELI Prime Minister Naftali Bennett stated on Monday that Iran’s nuclear program has crossed “all red lines,” and that Israel will not allow Iran to build a nuclear weapon.
Mr Bennett claimed Iran was growing its area of influence in West Asia in his first speech as Israeli Prime Minister, and urged international allies to focus greater efforts on permitting Iran to utilize a “nuclear umbrella” to rule the region. The PM, citing Israel’s ongoing sense of being threatened, also stated that if necessary, Israel will strike unilaterally against Iran.
“Iran’s nuclear program, like our tolerance, has reached a watershed moment,” he remarked from the UN General Assembly stage. Centrifuges do not cease spinning because of words…. Israel will not permit Iran to have nuclear weapons.” “Iran’s nuclear weapons program is at a critical juncture,” he continued. “Every single red line has been crossed.” Mr Bennett’s address was ignored by the Iranian envoy to the United Nations, who called it “lies.”
Iran’s ambassador to the UN also rushed to Twitter to clarify Iran’s position in reaction to Bennett’s remarks.
“Iran fear is wild in the UN,” Majid Takht Ravanchi stated. The Israeli regime’s Prime Minister’s statement on Iran was full of lies. With hundreds of nuclear warheads, that dictatorship is in no position to debate our peaceful program. And his silence on Palestine demonstrates a desire to deny Palestinians their rights.” Since its creation in 1968, Iran has been a founding signatory member of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty, popularly known as the NPT. Tehran claims that it abides by the treaty intended at preventing the spread of nuclear weapons.
Israel is not a member of the NPT since it has never publicly acknowledged its nuclear arsenal, which is estimated to have around 300 warheads.
Following the killing of top Iranian commander Qasem Soleimani by the US in a strike on his convoy in Baghdad two years ago, tensions in West Asia have risen.
Israel has also been suspected of multiple high-profile assassinations of Iranian nuclear scientists, the most recent of which was Mohsen Fakrizadeh, who was killed using a sophisticated remote-controlled machine gun.
Multiple events have occurred within Iran’s nuclear facilities, many of which are thought to be the work of Mossad, Israel’s foreign intelligence service.
