"One nuclear bomb won't destroy a state, not even a neighborhood in Tel Aviv"

Israel can live with an Iranian nuclear bomb, head of the Israeli Space Agency Professor Yitzhak Ben Yisrael said on Wednesday in an interview with Globes.

Speaking a day after the release of an IAEA report detailing Iran’s efforts at weapons development, Ben Yisrael explained, “One nuclear bomb won’t destroy a state, not even a neighborhood in Tel Aviv. An atomic bomb like the one the Iranians want to build has a radius of 500 meters of death and destruction, and 1,000 meters of lighter damage.”
