Some 164 to174 centrifuges may have been damaged or destroyed by the April explosion. On April 11, there was an explosion at Iran’s all-important Natanz underground nuclear facility. After months of debates and different narratives about what the impact was of that explosion, Monday night’s The International Atomic Energy Agency quarterly report finally lifted the veil. More will become known in a few more months and the picture will be clearer in another year. But it can already be said that neither the original Israeli estimates of a nine-month delay to Iran’s nuclear program nor Iran’s claim that the impact was very minor are true. The truth is somewhere in the middle. The IAEA report said that between February and May, 335.7 kg. of 5% level enriched uranium was produced, an average of 107 kg. per month.
