Israel says Iran has not crossed nuclear ‘red line’

JERUSALEM — Israel’s prime minister on Monday said that Iran is steadily edging closer to nuclear weapons capability but has not yet reached the ‘‘red line’’ he drew in a speech to the United Nations last fall.

Benjamin Netanyahu delivered his assessment as Israel took delivery of the fifth of six advanced submarines it has ordered from Germany. The Dolphin class vessels are believed to be capable of carrying missiles with nuclear warheads and could play an important role in any future conflict between Israel and Iran.
