Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has lashed out at European leaders and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) for turning a blind eye to the Israel regime’s quiet expansion of the highly-secretive Dimona nuclear facility in the Negev Desert while targeting Tehran’s nuclear program.

“Israel is expanding Dimona, the region’s only nuclear bomb factory,” Zarif said in a post on his Twitter account on Saturday.

Gravely concerned?

Concerned? A little?

Care to comment?

Tagging US President Joe Biden, the IAEA, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, the top Iranian diplomat tweeted, “Gravely concerned? Concerned? A little? Care to comment? I thought so.”

Zarif’s tweet came after newly-released satellite images have revealed that the Israeli regime — the sole possessor of nuclear arms in the Middle East — is conducting “significant” constructive activities at the Dimona nuclear facility.
