One More Step towards an Iranian Nuclear Bomb

Iran announced in the past few days that it would begin enriching uranium in its Fordo nuclear facility in the “near future.” It’s a development with huge implications in the ongoing confrontation between Iran, Israel, and the West over Iran’s nuclear program.

The Fordo facility is located near the Iranian city of Qom. One reason why it’s so important is because it’s underground, which makes it almost immune to a conventional military strike.

Recently we talked with Yaakov Katz, the military correspondent for the Jerusalem Post about Iran’s nuclear program. He explained why the move of centrifuges to the Fordo facility near Qom should be of great concern to Israel and the world.

He also explains why Iran getting a nuclear bomb is a lot closer than you might think.
