Israel to Upgrade Nuke Capabilities

A report says Israel is seeking to beef up its nuclear weapons capabilities despite Tel Aviv’s repeated defiance of international calls to join global non-proliferation treaties.

Israel is widely believed to be the sole possessor of a nuclear arsenal in the Middle East with over 300 nuclear warheads.

The Israeli regime has never denied or confirmed the existence of its nuclear arsenal as part of its long-held “nuclear ambiguity” policy.

Tel Aviv has rejected all global demands to join the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and refuses to allow the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspectors to monitor its nuclear facilities.

The Tel Aviv regime is planning to extend the range of its Jericho III land-to-land missiles, developing its inter-continental ballistic missile (ICBM) capability, according to a report for the British American Security Information Council (BASIC) published by The Guardian on Monday.

Israel also has plans to expand the capabilities of its cruise missiles designed to be launched from submarines.

Tel Aviv currently has three submarines, with two more under construction in Germany.

Despite international objections to the Israeli program, the United Nations and its nuclear regulatory agencies have never taken serious steps to censure or impose sanctions on the Zionist regime.
