According to the Israel Defense Forces intelligence chief Maj. Gen. Aviv Kochavi, more than 200,000 missiles are aimed at every part of the state from caches in Syria and Lebanon, CBN News reports. "Every tenth house in Lebanon is now a weapons depot," Kochavi said last week at the 2012 Herzliya Conference. He said Iran had enough low-grade uranium that, if enriched to a 90-percent level from its current 20-percent level, would be enough for four atomic bombs. "If [Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah] Khamenei issues a command to achieve a first nuclear explosive device, we estimate it would take another year before that's achieved," he said, adding that it was the "duty" of the international community to prevent the Iranian nuclear arms program from "coming together."
