A report has been released that Israel has disclosed top secret files showing that Iran has been trying to build a nuclear bomb under a veil of secrecy, the Sun has reported.
Israel stated that over 100,000 documents have reportedly been seized from a Tehran warehouse by agents from the Israeli intelligence agency, Mossad.
Last month, President Trump announced plans to leave the Iran nuclear deal, declaring the pact has failed to halt the country’s nuclear ambitions in perhaps the biggest foreign policy decision of his administration. Speaking at the White House, Trump said: “I am announcing today the United States will withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal.”
One document is said to be a 2001 memo handing responsibility for the production of weapons-grade enriched uranium to Iran’s defense chiefs.
It was one of 100,000 files seized from a Tehran warehouse by agents of the Israeli intelligence agency Mossad, reports the Times. The secret memo – from the Iranian atomic energy authority to the defense ministry – is said to authorize the military to take over the task of enriching uranium.
Israel says some of the higher uranium levels mentioned in the seized document suggest the intention to create a nuclear weapon.
Nuclear bombs work by using a conventional charge, or trigger, to pound two sections of enriched uranium together.
When they clash, a neutron is powered into a uranium-235 atom, splitting it and releasing more neutrons which in turn split more atoms.
This creates a chemical chain reaction and the devastatingly large explosions which have become the stuff of nightmares. The document is signed on behalf of the Iranian army by Amir Daryaban Ali Shamkami, now military adviser to the supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
The haul will now be made available to the security services of Britain, France and Germany ahead of this week’s European visit by Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu.
He has made it clear he hopes to persuade the three countries to follow President Trump in withdrawing from the deal.
Netanyahu will use the new “findings” to try and convince PM Theresa May that the multinational accord is invalid since it is based on “lies”.
Trump pointed to Iran’s refusal to come clean about its nuclear programme as a reason to pull out of the deal and reimpose US sanctions.
He said he would also work to find a “real, comprehensive, and lasting” deal that tackled not only the Iranian nuclear programme but its ballistic missile tests and activities across the Middle East.
