Israel will not allow a third country to use its nuclear facilities
Israel’s Defense Ministry on Monday said it will not permit any third country from using its nuclear sites, as it has long been opposed to the prospect of a Palestinian state on the Western Wall and the Temple Mount.
The ministry announced the policy in a statement on Monday following a meeting of senior defense officials, including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
The ministry said the decision reflects Israel’s longstanding position that any state, regardless of its political and religious identity, should be permitted to build a nuclear facility, and it would not allow Palestinians to do the same.
It added that Israel’s policy of “permission for any third party” has been a long-standing one, and would be the only one of its kind.
The government’s decision, the statement said, was based on “current security and security priorities and the importance of maintaining security on the Temple and the Western Walls.”
It said that it has no intention of allowing any third parties to build on the sites of the two holiest sites in Judaism, and added that it does not consider it to be “in the interest of security” for any Israeli to use them.

Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has made clear his support for the U.N. resolution.
He has said that Israel should not allow the construction of a third Palestinian state and that the U,N.

Israel has built thousands of nuclear warheads and has deployed them at a variety of military sites throughout the occupied territories, and in a variety in the occupied West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza Strip.
The Palestinians claim the territories as part of their future state, while Israel maintains its occupation.
The Palestinians claim East Jerusalem, including the West Bank and parts of Jerusalem, as the capital of a future independent state.
The two sides have not yet reached a deal on the issue of Jerusalem and its future.
Ariel Sharon, who was prime minister from 2002 to 2006, also vetoed a United Nations resolution that called for a Palestinian entity to be recognized as Israel.
In 2010, the Palestinians won a rare U.S.-brokered peace deal with the Israelis, but the U
