Israel possesses 200-300 nuclear warheads (experts)

The Defense Army of Israel would have 200 nuclear warheads, according to an article published Tuesday by experts from the International Institute for Strategic Studies in London (IISS).

According to experts, these warheads can equip intercontinental ballistic missiles Jericho I, and the intermediate-range missiles Jericho II.

According to the research group IHS Jane’s, specializes in the collection of military information, the IDF has 100-300 nuclear warheads, making the Jewish state on the same level as France and Britain.

According to IHS Jane’s, the warheads would also be installed on the Jericho III ballistic missiles. With a range exceeding 7,000 km, they are capable of destroying targets in Europe and Asia, including Iran.

Since the creation of the Israeli nuclear arsenal in 1960, the Jewish state refuses to recognize the existence of its nuclear weapons program. Israelis who reveal this information are subject to criminal prosecution.
