IAEA Report: Iran Installed Four Uranium-Enriching Machines at Fordow

Iran has installed half the advanced uranium-enriching machines it said earlier the previous month it would quickly add to its Fordow site but has not yet brought them online, a new report from Friday, June 28, by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) says, according to British media.

Iran informed the IAEA more than two weeks ago it would rapidly expand its enrichment capacity at Fordow by adding eight cascades, or clusters, of IR-6 centrifuges at Fordow within three to four weeks. Within two days, the IAEA verified that two cascades had been installed.

In a confidential report to member states on Friday seen by the British media outlet, the agency said that number had now doubled. “The Agency has verified that Iran has installed four of the aforementioned eight IR-6 cascades in Unit 1 at FFEP (Fordow Fuel Enrichment Plant),” the report said, adding that the verification was carried out on Sunday.

American media further reported that Iran’s “power circles” are discussing whether it is “time to weaponize the nuclear program and build a bomb.” The Fordow facility is buried so deep, the report added, quoting military officials, that it would require “repeated, precise strikes by the United States’ largest “bunker buster” to reach down that deep.

Meanwhile, the United States announced new sanctions targeting Iran’s oil trade on Thursday, saying it was acting in response to “steps (by Iran) to further expand its nuclear program in ways that have no credible peaceful purpose.” (INN /VFI News)

“Our Heavenly Father, we thank You for protecting us from Iran so far and we ask that You continue being our shield against all the nations wishing to harm our people. We pray in Yeshua’s name that You prevent Iran from further enriching its uranium, from producing nuclear weapons, and from starting another war in the Middle East.”
