Shocking new details of Iran’s nuclear enrichment programme have come to light following a report by a former Iranian Revolutionary Guard member and CIA operative ‘Reza Kahlili’ (pseudonym).
Kahlili, who recently broke the news of the explosion at Iran’s Fordow reactor, reported late last night on further developments which ‘cross red lines’ with regard to Iran’s nuclear programme.
According to Kahlili, Iranian scientists are working on nuclear warheads at an underground site previously unknown Western intelligence services. The source of the new information is a “high-ranking intelligence officer of the Islamic regime” in Iran.
It is claimed that the newly revealed site is approximately 14 miles long and 7.5 miles wide, and consists of two facilities built deep into a mountain, along with a missile facility that is surrounded by barbed wire, 45 security towers and several security posts. A video has been provided, outlining the facilities and showing how they are connected to the latest developments.
The site, according to the original source, is named ‘Quds’ (Jerusalem), and is almost 15 miles from another site which was previously secret but exposed in 2009, the Fordow nuclear facility. The power to this site comes from the same source as Fordow – the Shahid Rajaei power plant – with high power towers surrounding the site.
Quds is said to be built 375 feet under a mountain and is only accessible by two large concrete-reinforced entrances.
The site is believed to have the capacity for 8,000 centrifuges and currently has three operational chambers with 19 cascades of 170 to 174 centrifuges enriching uranium. As of three months ago, the source said, there were 76 kilograms of 20 percent enriched uranium stock at the site and 48 kilograms of over 40 percent enriched uranium.
Though the regime has long succeeded in enriching uranium to 20 percent, which is 80 percent of the way to weapons grade, enriching to over 20 percent would be a clear sign of an intention of building a nuclear bomb.
Regime scientists are also said to be working on a plutonium bomb as a second path to a nuclear weapon, the source said, who went on to explain that Iran has 24 kilograms of plutonium at the site, enough for ‘several atomic bombs’.
There is also reason to believe that the collaboration between Iran and North Korea goes deeper than previously imagined. Iranian scientists, aided by North Koreans, are said to be working on new ways to have “more miniaturized and more powerful atomic bombs”.
WND reports that adjacent to the Quds facility is another facility dubbed “Mughniyah” after the Lebanese terrorist Imad Mughniyah. Personnel at this site are believed to be working on missiles and warheads.
