Where Has Israel Hide Its Arsenal Of Nuclear Weapons?


Sebastien Roblin, National Interest: Israel Could Have As Many As 300 Nuclear Weapons. And This Is Where They Hide Many of Them.

Many could be underwater.

A closer avenue for attack would lie in the Persian Gulf, but this would involve transiting the submarines through the Suez Canal (controlled by Egypt), around Africa (impractically far for the Dolphin-class), or stationing some at the naval base at Eilat, which faces the Gulf of Aqaba on the southern tip of Israel and is surrounded by Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia. In short, deploying Israeli submarines to Iran’s southern flank would require some degree of cooperation and logistical support from other Middle Eastern states that might not be forthcoming in a crisis scenario.

Israel has never officially admitted to possessing nuclear weapons.

Unofficially, Tel Aviv wants everyone to know it has them, and doesn’t hesitate to make thinly-veiled references to its willingness to use them if confronted by an existential threat. Estimates on the size of Tel Aviv’s nuclear stockpile range from 80 to 300 nuclear weapons, the latter number exceeding China’s arsenal.

WNU Editor: Where these weapons are hidden is probably Israel's most important military secret. Israel is also not hesitant to warn foes on the consequences if war does break out .... Israel threatens to use nuclear weapons to ‘wipe out’ its enemies (Middle East Monitor), while at the same time hardening its own nuclear sites from possible threats .... Israel says it’s reinforcing its nuclear sites because of Iranian threats (Times of Israel).

To know a location is important but is of little use when it is also clear that Germany has sold Israel subs that carry nukes and that nation if seriously under threat can use them, thus making bombing land nuke sites insuffient

I sleep better at night knowing that an apartheid state filled with religious weirdos possesses hundreds of nukes hiding beneath the waves.

One could say all strictly orthodox are religious weirdos...not just in the country you dispise. if apartheid, why do Arabs serve in elective roles and attend colleges in Israel?
But I am delighted that you get a good night's sleep...use nightlight?
