Stolen documents shed new light on Iran weapons technology: reports

New details on stolen Iranian nuclear documents obtained by Israeli spies earlier this year shed light on Tehran’s nuclear ambitions and show that Iran more than two decades ago had assembled the materials it needed to produce a nuclear bomb, according to multiple media reports.

The details expanded on those provided by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu provided in April, first in a private briefing with President Trump and later in an open presentation. 

The information came from a trove of documents stolen from a storage facility in Tehran by agents for the Israeli by agency Mossad. Journalists for The New York Timesthe Washington Post and others were invited by the Israeli government to view key documents obtained in the raid.
