Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke at the United Nations General Assembly this week where he accused Iran of hiding a nuclear storage facility.

On Thursday, Netanyahu held up photos of secret Iranian nuclear sites, and said before the assembly, “Today I am disclosing for the first time that Iran has another secret facility in Tehran.”

The facility is disguised as a rug-cleaning facility, according to Netanyahu. He called the facility a “secret atomic warehouse” used for “storing massive amounts of equipment and material from Iran’s secret weapons program.”

Netanyahu said Iran has been moving radioactive materials out of the warehouse ever since Israel exposed Iran’s secret atomic archives. Just last month, he claims Iran moved 15 kilograms of material out of the facility and “spread it around Tehran,” thus endangering citizens.

“The endangered residents of Tehran may want to know that they can get a Geiger Counter at Amazon for only 29.99,” he said.

He added that Iran holds at least 15 ship containers full of “nuclear-related equipment and materials” stored at the facility, which is as much as 300 tons.

“What Iran hides, Israel will find,” Netanyahu warned.

He also criticized the International Atomic Energy Agency for failing to uncover the facility during their investigation, even though he provided them with evidence earlier in the year. He said he provided the IAEA and several intelligence agencies with evidence of the facility.

“Do the right thing. Go inspect this atomic warehouse immediately before the Iranians finish clearing it out,” he said, addressing the IAEA.

“Remember when we were promised that inspections could take place anytime, anywhere?” he asked. “How about inspections right here, right now,” he said, pointing to the images of the facility. “While you’re at it, inspect the other sites we told you about.”

He further called out members of the European Union for ignoring Iran’s nuclear activity and instead working to renew and strengthen the nuclear accord with Iran.

“Have these European leaders learned nothing from history? Will they ever wake up?” he asked them.

“Israel knows what you’re doing and where you’re doing it,” he said, addressing Iran. “And Israel will do whatever it must do to defend itself against Iran’s aggression.”
