Iran has increased its production of hundreds of centrifuges and tripled its enrichment rate at the Fordow underground site in the last year, Defense Minister Benny Gantz revealed to United Nations diplomats.

“According to our assessments, in the past year, the number of advanced centrifuges has more than doubled in the underground facilities of Natanz and Fordow,” he warned, adding that the international community “must ensure military deterrence, in addition to diplomatic and economic efforts. The UN Security Council must take action in face of the Iranian challenge.”

Gantz made comments on Sunday during a series of meetings at the United Nations Headquarters in New York, along with Israel’s Ambassador to the UN Gilad Erdan, director of the Policy and POL-MIL Bureau Dror Shalom and Military Secretary Yaki Dolf.
