Doest israel have nuclear weapons?

does israel have nuclear weapons As of my knowledge cutoff in September 2021, Israel has a policy of nuclear ambiguity, also known as "nuclear opacity." This means that Israel neither confirms nor denies the possession of nuclear weapons. However, it's widely believed that Israel does possess such weapons. Israel is not a signatory to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT), which aims to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons and weapons technology. Its alleged nuclear program is centered around the Negev Nuclear Research Center near the city of Dimona, although the full extent and nature of this program are not publicly confirmed by Israeli officials. Estimates of the number of nuclear warheads Israel possesses vary. The Stockholm International Peace Research Institute estimated in a 2020 report that Israel has approximately 90 nuclear warheads. However, without official confirmation or disclosure, these estimates are speculative. For updated or more specific information, I recommend referring to the most recent public assessments by international security and arms control institutions.
