Arms Control Association Warns Netanyahu, Don’t Bomb Iran’s Nuclear Program

April 16, 2024 (EIRNS)—Clearly, a high-value target in Iran that is on the Israeli radar has been Iran’s nuclear program. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been wanting to bomb it since at least 2012; however, whether Netanyahu has put Iranian nuclear sites on Israel’s current target list is not known at this time.

The U.S.-based Arms Control Association (ACA) issued a warning to Netanyahu not to do it. “Targeting Iranian nuclear sites in reaction to a drone and missile attack that did minimal damage to Israel would be a reckless and irresponsible escalation that increases the risk of a wider regional war,” writes Kelsey Davenport, ACA’s Director of Nonproliferation Policy, in a commentary posted yesterday. Furthermore, a large-scale attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities is more likely to push Tehran to decide that developing nuclear weapons is necessary to deter future attacks.”
