Israel continues to maintain its long-standing policy of nuclear opacity: it neither officially confirms nor denies that it possesses nuclear weapons.1 It is estimated here that Israel has approximately 80 intact nuclear weapons, of which 50 are for delivery by Jericho II medium-range ballistic missiles and 30 are gravity bombs for delivery by aircraft (see table 6.9). The operational status of a longer-range Jericho III ballistic missile is unknown. On 12 July 2013 Israel conducted a launching test of a ‘rocket propulsion system’, which appeared to be a test firing of a Jericho III ballistic missile.2
