The Institute for Science and International Security has claimed in a study published on Friday that Israel has produced 660kg of plutonium, which is enough to make 115 nuclear warheads. It is claimed this was done at the Dimona nuclear reactor.
The study estimated that a single nuclear bomb requires 3-5 kg of plutonium.
It also claims that Israel has developed Jericho-ballistic missiles, as well as nuclear-capable cruise missiles and an aircraft that can deliver nuclear weapons. Israel may also have the technology to launch missiles from its submarines.
Other research institutes have put forward different estimates ranging from 80 to 200 nuclear warheads.
It must be remembered that Israel, along with only India, Pakistan and South Sudan, has not signed the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons. Israel has a long-standing policy of deliberate ambiguity with regards to its nuclear program.
