JERUSALEM, Dec. 15 (UPI) -- Iran says it has completed the transfer of its nuclear facilities underground to protect it from Western attack.
The Iranian Revolutionary Guards said "vulnerability in the nuclear area has reached the minimum level," Debkafile.com, a Jerusalem-based Web site with reputed links to Israeli intelligence, reported Thursday.
Debkafile.com said Iran is closer than ever to acquiring nuclear capability with advanced centrifuges that are being moved to the new underground city at Fordo, near Qom. The Web site said North Korea has been sending rare metals needed to keep its high-tech centrifuges spinning uninterrupted.
"When these advanced models have all been transferred to Fordo, Iran can start enriching the 20 percent grade uranium it has accumulated to 60 percent, a step before weapons grade," Debkafile.com said.
The Web site's sources said Iran has enough materials to build four or five nuclear bombs.
