Nuclear Disarmament -4 Points Full Points 98 -4.1%
Change compared to the Hiroshima Report 2020: -2
Israel has consistently pursued the policy of “nuclear opacity” while being estimated to possess approximately 90 nuclear warheads. Due to such a policy, its nuclear capabilities and posture remain unclear. It has developed and deployed IRBMs and SLCMs which can load nuclear warheads. Israel has yet to ratify the CTBT, nor has it declared a moratorium on production of fissile material for nuclear weapons. It voted against most of the UNGA Resolutions regarding nuclear disarmament. Israel has not signed the TPNW.
Nuclear Non-Proliferation 13 Points Full Points 43 30.2%
Change compared to the Hiroshima Report 2020: 0
Israel argues that improvement of regional security is imperative for establishing a Middle East Zone Free of WMD. It voted against the UNGA resolution “Establishment of a nuclear-weaponfree zone in the region of the Middle East,” following the previous year, and has criticized strongly and rejected to participate in the Conference on the Establishment of WMD-Free Zones in the Middle East, which is led by Arab countries. At the UNGA First Committee, Israel stated the suspicion to the NPT since some of its states parties in the Middle East violate the treaty. It has established solid export control systems. However, Israel has not acceded to the IAEA Additional Protocol.
Nuclear Security 23 Points Full Points 41 56.1%
