Israel's prime minister said on Tuesday that he planned to make the move after next week's Israeli election and hinted it may have been approved by Washington.
The group of buildings hidden in the hills outside of the city of Abadeh was discovered using information gathered in a trove of documents Israeli agents stole from an Iranian warehouse and made public early a year ago, Netanyahu announced Monday during a televised speech. But when the Iranians realized Israel had discovered the site, the prime minister said, "they destroyed the site, simply wiped it out - or tried to", in July 2019.
There was no immediate reaction from Iran.
He accused Iran of using the facility near the city of Abadeh to "conduct experiments to develop nuclear weapons" and warned the world action should be taken sooner not later to stem any buildup of Iranian nuclear weapons.
The prime minister called on the global community to enact "pressure, pressure and more pressure" on Iran.
"The possessor of REAL nukes cries wolf - on an ALLEGED "demolished" site in Iran", Zarif said, referring to Israel's never-acknowledged nuclear weapons program.
Tehran has yet to explain the presence of uranium at the site, MailOnline reported.Читайте также: Kim Kardashian West tested positive for lupus antibodies and got emotional
The UN's International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) demanded Tehran answer its questions after diplomats found traces of uranium at a site that was not declared to the agency.
And the latest discoveries follows a previous discovery of a "secret atomic warehouse" in Tehran, the Iranian capital, in September past year.
"We will continue to expose your lies", said Netanyahu.
The deal has steadily unravelled since then and caused tensions to heighten across the Persian Gulf and broader Middle East.
Gantz, who has ruled out serving in a government with a prime minister under indictment, has sought to convince other members of the Likud Party to abandon Netanyahu and to form a unity government with his Blue and White - so far without success.
At the same time, the Vienna-based IAEA has not yet sounded the alarm because such questions are part of a painstaking process that can often take many months.
