The Institute for Science and International Security report states that Iran has enough weapons-grade uranium to build a nuclear weapon in a week, and could produce a total of six bombs in a month.

The report highlighted the increased danger of Iran’s nuclear weapons capabilities and the strained relations with the West.

“The volatile situation in the region is providing Iran with a unique opportunity and increased internal justification for building nuclear weapons while the United States and Israel’s resources to detect and deter Iran from succeeding are stretched thin,” the report stated.

“Iran’s nuclear weapons capabilities are more dangerous than they have ever been, while its relations with the West are at a low point.”

Iran can “break out and produce enough weapon-grade enriched uranium for a nuclear weapon in a week, using only a fraction of its 60% enriched uranium,” the report added. “This breakout could be difficult for inspectors to detect promptly, if Iran took steps to delay inspectors’ access.”

Tensions in the Middle East are escalating, with proxy terrorist groups launching attacks and the U.S. carrying out airstrikes.

Both the U.S. and Iran have vowed to respond decisively to future attacks.
