The International Atomic Energy Agency’s top inspector, Massimo Aparo, told diplomats in a closed-door meeting in Vienna on Wednesday that Iran is evading attempts to discover the source of man-made and natural uranium particles detected at a warehouse in Tehran earlier this year. IAEA acting Director General Cornel Feruta is convening an extraordinary meeting of the 35-member board of governors Thursday to discuss the new concerns. The IAEA has satellite images showing that the Turquz-Abad site where the particles were found was cleared out after Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu presented an archive that Mossad spies smuggled out of a secret warehouse in Tehran. Those documents showed Iran lied about a weapons project that operated until 2003, and then intensified efforts to hide its atomic archive after agreeing to the 2015 nuclear accord with six world nations.
DEBKAfile: The discovery of those particles indicates that Iran operates secret nuclear sites hidden from nuclear watchdog inspections.
