From combined dispatches

CAIRO — The Arab League called this week for the International Atomic Energy Agency to inspect Israel’s nuclear sites.

In its demand Monday, the Cairo-based organization called for Israel to sign the nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty and for its sites to undergo inspections by the United Nations’ nuclear watchdog.

Israel never has confirmed or denied that it possesses nuclear weapons, but it has been considered a nuclear power by the United States since 1969. Analysts estimate that Israel has 200 nuclear warheads.
