Israel Today's nuclear defense expert: "Iran's main enrichment facility is in Natanz - and here they have been hit very hard" • "It will take them a long time to recover"

"The declaration is a statement with no current capability. It will take them a long time to implement it, so despite the belligerent statements that Iran is currently in trouble," Dr. and Col. (Res.) Uri Nissim Levy, an international expert on nuclear defense, said today (Tuesday).
This follows the statement of a senior official in the Islamic Republic that she has started enriching uranium at a level of 60%.
In a conversation with Israel Today, Dr. Levy stated that "Iran's main enrichment facility is in Natanz.
Here they have suffered a very severe injury at a point which takes a long time to repair.
Whoever hit them knew what he was doing and also where to hit, so the reactor would be hit dramatically.
Now the bulk of the transition in the nucleus is between the civilian and military nuclei from 3.67% to 20%.
It requires a lot of knowledge and other abilities and it is also more time and little material.
It's easier to enrich from 20% to 60% or 90%. "
According to Dr. Levy, “The thing is that Natanz was the center of their production so right now the announcement is just an announcement.
The second facility in Purdue is much smaller so at the moment these are words.
It will take them a long time to recover from this injury. "
"In fact, Iran has two enrichment facilities. The biggest and most important is Natanz, and here they were hit at the most sensitive point in the system. A point that cannot be backed up or bypassed.
