Israel says it’ll take 6 months for Iran to produce enough fissile material for a single nuclear weapon, longer than US projection

The Israeli energy minister has said he predicts it will take Iran six months to reach a position where it has enough fissile material for a single nuclear weapon, while a small arsenal could be achieved in one to two years.

Israel’s forecast of six months is longer than that of US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, who suggested Iran might have enough fissile material for a single nuclear weapon within three to four months.

“In terms of enrichment, they [Iranians] are in a situation of breaking out in around half a year if they do everything required,” Israeli Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz told public broadcaster Kan on Tuesday. “As for nuclear weaponry, the range is around one or two years.”

Steinitz added that the Trump administration had been successful in “seriously damaging Iran’s nuclear project and entire force build-up.”
