Does Israel have nuclear weapons?


Yes. Israel is estimated to have around 90 nuclear weapons. As the country refuses to confirm or deny it has such weapons, little is known about its arsenal, but experts believe it can launch nuclear weapons using missiles, submarines and aircraft.

Israel spent an estimated US$1.2 billion in 2022 on its nuclear arsenal.

Israel may  have carried out a nuclear test in collaboration with Apartheid South Africa in 1979 over the ocean between southern Africa and Antarctica.
