Iran would be only 2 years away from having nuclear ballistic missiles

According to information obtained by the site , Israeli intelligence services have elements allowing them to estimate that Iranian engineers are only two years away from being able to board a medium-range ballistic missile, like the Shahab 3 carrying a nuclear warhead more than 1000 km away, effectively threatening a large part of the Middle East, including Hebrew territory.

Israeli concerns about Iran's nuclear program are nothing new, and Tel Aviv has repeatedly expressed concerns about the progress made by Iranian engineers, particularly regarding the enrichment of ores and the miniaturization of equipment, allowing in particular to design a nuclear warhead implemented by a ballistic missile. But today, the information transmitted to the American Defense news site, obviously on purpose, is intended to be particularly precise. Not only does the deadline now appear particularly restricted, especially since Tehran has announced its withdrawal from the Vienna agreements following the resumption of American sanctions, but the intelligence services estimate that the nuclear warheads potentially produced in Iran will be able to equip all ballistic missiles whose diameter is greater than or equal to 4.1 m, including the Shahab-3. Note that during the attack on coalition bases in retaliation for that which killed General Soleimani, observers were surprised by the great precision observed by Iranian ballistic missiles .
