In its most recent quarterly report, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) announced that Iran is ready to increase its production of 20% enriched uranium in its underground facility at Fordow by feeding uranium hexafluoride gas into 700 new centrifuges. The new report also detailed satellite evidence collected by the IAEA of Iranian activities at Parchin, where it is suspected that a cleanup operation is underway to remove evidence of high-explosives testing conducted at the site.
