IDF intel chief: Iran nearing 90% enrichment, world will be tested

Emanuel (Mannie) Fabian is The Times of Israel's military correspondent.

Military Intelligence chief Maj. Gen. Aharon Haliva says Iran has made “significant progress” toward producing 90 percent enriched uranium.

Speaking at an INSS conference Haliva says, “The moment is coming when the greatest test of the international community will come to light, when Iran entertains [the idea of] enrichment at 90%, even if only symbolically.”

Haliva says IDF chief Aviv Kohavi’s five-day trip to the US, which is focused on the Iranian threat, comes at a “critical” time.
