Will there be an attack on an Iranian nuclear facility in the next 6 months?
Despite international efforts to curb Iran’s nuclear program, concerns remain that both the level of enrichment and the amount of stockpiled fissile material lay the groundwork for development of a nuclear weapon (VOA, Fox). Israel is vehemently opposed to Iran’s development of a nuclear weapon and has threatened military action to forestall that outcome (United States Institute for Peace, Reuters). Although Israel has said that no attack is imminent (Reuters), they have also emphasized their ability to strike at facilities deep within Iran (AP News).
