The Iranian government’s damning document was revealed today, and it outlines how the country’s forces were developing monstrous nuclear weapons in 2002. Exposed by the MailOnline, the document proves that scientists in Iran were planning to build a ‘warhead’, and their proposal was even approved by Iran’s top nuclear official.
The document was originally obtained by Israeli forces during a raid on an Iranian compound in Tehran in 2018.
One part of the documents show a senior official in Iran requesting the parameters of a warhead fitted on a missile.
In a letter written by Iran’s nuclear science chief, Moshen Fakhrizadeh, he requested information on “warhead chamber details…Acceleration curve…Velocity curve during flights [and] Missile acoustic curve during flight.”
The letter came to light after the the Friends of Israel Initiative were granted access to the trove of documents in a Tehran hanger.
The group of foreign policy experts will soon publish a report on their findings, which will outline that ‘Iran intended to become a fully operational nuclear state’.
The revelation represents yet another concerning sub-plot to the US-Iran fallout over the 2015 nuclear deal.
Under the nuclear deal, Iran was only permitted to spin centrifuges without uranium gas as Washington looked to restrict Tehran’s nuclear capabilities.
When he became US President, Donald Trump accused the Islamic Republic of gradually increasing its uranium production in a move that disobeyed the agreement.

With tensions still boiling, Europe’s leaders have sought to find a solution.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson suggested that the abandoned Iran nuclear deal – which restricted Tehran’s weapons development – should be replaced with a new Trump deal.
Mr Johnson told BBC Breakfast on Tuesday: “If we’re going to get rid of it then we need a replacement. Let’s replace it with the Trump deal.”
German Chancellor Angela Merkel took a different approach, as she announced alongside Russian President Vladimir Putin that the two leaders believe the old deal should be revived.
She said: “We agreed that we should do anything to preserve the deal, the JCPOA. Germany is convinced that Iran should not acquire or have nuclear weapons.”
