So advanced is Iran’s uranium development program that the Islamic Republic can now produce sufficient fissile material for a nuclear weapon in under two weeks, a U.S. military chief said on Friday.

Army Gen. Michael Kurilla, who leads U.S. Central Command, was echoing similar assessments from his colleagues such as Under Secretary of Defense for Policy Colin Kahl. Kahl estimated that it would take Iran 12 days to produce fissile material adequate for an atom bomb.

Kurilla apprised the Senate Armed Services Committee of the latest developments in the Middle East, emphasizing multiple security risks to the US and its allies. Iran proxy groups continue to attack U.S. troops, including a rocket strike by Iranian-backed terrorists on U.S. troops in Syria earlier this week, he said.

“Iran possesses the largest and most diverse missile arsenal in the Middle East, with thousands of ballistic and cruise missiles, some capable of striking the entire Middle East and Levant. The Iranian regime now holds the largest and most capable Unmanned Aerial Vehicle force in the region,” the official said “The advancement of Iranian military capabilities over the past 40 years is unparalleled in the region; in fact, the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps of today is unrecognizable from just five years ago.”

“Iran is undeterred from its malign activities, which include conventional threats to neighbors, support to violent proxy groups that spread chaos and instability throughout the region, and support to Russia’s war in Ukraine,” Kurilla added.

Iran denies wanting to acquire atomic weapons, and says it had made no attempt to enrich uranium beyond 60-percent purity, claims Washington and Jerusalem say are detached from reality.

Kurilla also highlighted the terrorist threat emanating from he said was one of the Islamic State’s most dangerous affiliates, the Afghan IS-Khorasan or ISIS-K. –i24 News
