Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the development of the Israeli nuclear program for peaceful and military purpose. Israeli efforts to acquire the technology, personnel and materials to produce nuclear weapons date back almost as far as the birth of the State in May 1948. Israel has been actively engaged in various aspects of nuclear research and has reportedly developed its own sources of uranium and has acquired expertise of various processes that make up the nuclear fuel cycle. The chapter discusses the legal aspects surrounding the program and legal effects of UN resolutions concerning Israel nuclear armament. Israel possesses nuclear weapons despite the fact that it has kept its official position not to declare its possession. Israel has one nuclear facility, in Nehal Soreq that was under the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) safeguards system before the entry into force of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT).
