Hossein Abedini of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) has spoken to the Daily Express about his group’s findings. The revelations are contained within a paper entitled, ‘Iran’s Nuclear Core: Uninspected Military Sites Vital to the Nuclear Weapons Program’. The Iranian regime has been working at five sites to enrich uranium with the purpose of developing a nuclear weapon, the Iranian Resistance document claims.
According to the NCRI paper: “Because of Tehran's aspirations for a nuclear weapon, the bulk of the regime's programme has been of a covert military nature.
“As a result, formulating an arms control agreement to prohibit the regime's access to nuclear arms, as per Iran's Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) obligations, has proven a major challenge to the international community.”
The document asserts there are five known locations at which Hassan Rouhani’s callous regime has been enriching uranium.
These sites include Natanz, Arak, Lashkar-Abad, exposed by the resistance group in 2003, Shian-Lavisan, also exposed in 2003 by the NCRI, and Fordow.
But the dissident group now claims to have new evidence of four more sites which, “with a high degree of certainty, have been involved in various aspects of the nuclear weapons project”.
They are Pazhouheshkadeh (located at the Parchin military complex, south-east Tehran), Nouri Industrial site (located at Khojir military complex, south-east Tehran), Hafte Tir site (on a military base of the same name) and Sanjarian site (close to the Parchin military complex).
More recently, the NCRI has released details of a further two sites in a paper entitled ‘Iran’s Ballistic Build Up’.
They are Mojdeh site and the Nour building.
Hossein Abedini, a member of the Iranian Resistance who was himself the victim of a failed assassination attempt in Turkey, explained the significance of his group’s discoveries.
He said: “We have exposed the clandestine nuclear sites of the Iranian regime.
“In 2002 we revealed the enrichment of uranium to a
Following the initial revelations exposed by the NCRI, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) sent its inspectors to visit the sites.
He added: “It was only after we revealed these sites the world

“It was after that another 100 revelations were made by the NCRI.”
The IAEA did not respond to a request for comment on the NCRI’s findings.
The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action - or so-called Iran Nuclear deal - was intended to curb Iran’s nuclear weapons programme and thwart its ability to create a nuclear bomb.
The accord was struck between Iran and global superpowers, China, France, Germany, the European Union, Russia, the United Kingdom and United States (who later withdrew under President Trump).
Of the deal,
“It was time to get rid of all its nuclear activities but unfortunately they
