Israel has given up on harming Iran’s uranium enrichment — report




Israel has largely given up on further harming Iran’s uranium enrichment capabilities, Channel 12 news reported Saturday.

“Iran already has enough enriched uranium [for one or more bombs],” the network said without citing a source.

The network assessed that this was the reason for alleged Israeli attacks against other factors related to Iran’s nuclear programs, such as assassinations of scientists and strikes on missile development bases, and a focus on Iran’s weaponization program — the capacity to mount a bomb onto a missile.

Israel is widely believed to have carried out various acts of sabotage against Iran’s nuclear program, including cyber-attacks and physical sabotage at enrichment facilities, as well as the killings of scientists, engineers and other officials key to the Islamic Republic’s nuclear development efforts.

On Tuesday, Iran claimed that it had arrested Mossad agents who were planning to assassinate nuclear scientists in the country.

The announcement did not detail the alleged agents’ nationalities or how many people had been detained. There were no further details given on the alleged plot.

Iran often detains individuals it claims are linked to foreign intelligence services without providing public evidence.

Last month, it was reported that Iran suspects Israel killed two Iranian scientists several weeks ago by poisoning their food, as tensions flared between Tehran and Jerusalem amid Iranian progress on its rogue nuclear program and a series of mysterious deaths in Iran.
