Former US president Jimmy Carter says the Zionist regime possesses 150 nuclear warheads in its arsenal, according to The Times of London.

His statement appeared to be the first time a former US president states publicly the amount of nuclear warheads Israel supposedly has in its possession, DPA reported.

According to The Times, Carter made the remark at the Hay-on-Wye festival in Wales, which promotes current affairs books and literature.

Since his presidency, Carter has over the years become known as a fierce critic of Israel's policies.

The southern town of Dimona is home to a reactor that is the centerpiece of Israel's illegal nuclear weapons program. The regime began developing a nuclear reactor in Dimona in the 1950s.

The Zionist regime is reportedly the only nuclear-armed country in the Middle East which has refused to sign the Non-Proliferation Treaty.
