Netanyahu claims Iran nuke site destroyed to hide evidence


A remote site that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says was used by Iran to conduct “experiments to develop nuclear weapons” has now been wiped off the map, satellite images show.

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 last year, Netanyahu announced Monday during a televised speech. He also claimed Iran recently destroyed the site after learning that Israel became aware of its existence.

“In this site, Iran conducted experiments to develop nuclear weapons,” Netanyahu said according to Reuters.

He provided no details or evidence of what those experiments were, but he showed off two satellite photos. The first, taken in June, showed the facility intact. The second, taken in July, showed parts of a building there that had been destroyed, in what he said was an Iranian cover-up.
