Israel to upgrade nuclear defenses in response to Iran, Syria threats

Recently appointed Iranian governor to IAEA Kazem Gharib Abadi prepares for a meeting at the IAEA headquarters in Vienna Austria. AFP

"We can not ignore the repeated and explicit threats, made by Iran and its proxies, to attack Israel's nuclear sites", Snir said at a meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna.

Zeev Snir, the director-general of Israel's Atomic Energy Commission, addressed the issue on Tuesday in a speech to a meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency, or IAEA. Foreign reports have put the size of Israel's nuclear arsenal in the dozens to hundreds of weapons.

The leader of Israel's atomic energy program also called for a concerted global effort against Iran and Syrian nuclear development sites, following a request from Iran for the United Nations to condemn and supervise Israel's nuclear development.

On Thursday, Israel said it is upgrading and reinforcing its nuclear facilities to withstand attacks to counter Iranian threats to strike the Israel's nuclear sites.

Israel has neither confirmed or denied housing nuclear weapons and has dubbed suspicion of the country having them as "ambiguity" that arose over their bid to keep hostile neighbours in check.

"Israel can not ignore the repeated and explicit threats, made by Iran and its proxies, to attack Israel's nuclear sites", a statement by the prime minister's office cited Israel Atomic Energy Commission Director General Zeev Snir as saying.

The two groups went on to battle each other throughout history to see which would eventually become the ultimate race. Matthew and Ryan Firpo , whose Black List script Ruin has made waves, will write the screenplay.

"These outrageous threats require Israel to take action and continue to protect and defend its nuclear facilities".

After Israeli lobbying, the USA earlier this year withdrew from the landmark nuclear deal signed between Tehran and world powers in July 2015. Tehran, which is a signatory to the 1970 nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), denies wanting to so.

"Syria built an undeclared, secretive military nuclear reactor at Dir Alzour".

Netanyahu tried to show that Iran hid a nuclear weapons program during the negotiations of the Persian country with the 5 + 1 group (USA, United Kingdom, France, Russia and China plus Germany).

Snir also pleaded for strong actions against Iran, "The IAEA must conduct a robust verification of Iran's clandestine activities". Tehran backs the Lebanese militia Hezbollah and the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas.

Iran's reinforcement of Damascus during Syria's civil war is seen by Israel as a further deployment on their borders.
