Israeli PM Netanyahu claims to find new Iranian nuke site

's has unveiled what he says is a previously undisclosed Iranian site. Speaking to reporters Monday, said the facility was discovered from records that Israel said it had seized from an Iranian nuclear warehouse early last year.

Israeli Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday accused Iran of having a previously undisclosed site aimed at developing nuclear weapons that it destroyed.

Iran itself destroyed the site located near the city of Abadeh, south of Tehran, in around July after realising that had detected it, Netanyahu alleged.

He showed a satellite photo of the facility in the southern Fars province's area in June, followed by a second photo of what he said was the site being destroyed in July, after the Iranians realized they'd been discovered.

Netanyahu, a fierce critic of the international nuclear deal with Iran, says Tehran is trying to develop a nuclear weapon — a charge Iran denies.

"Israel knows what you're doing, Israel knows when you're doing it, and Israel knows where you're doing it," Netanyahu said.
