‘Blast in Iran struck uranium enrichment facility’
By JPOST.COM STAFF AND YAAKOV KATZ:
Satellite imagery “clearly showing billowing smoke and destruction” has proven that an explosion Monday damaged a nuclear facility in the Iranian city of Ifsahan, according to a Wednesday Times of London report .
The report quoted Israeli intelligence officials as saying that there was “no doubt” that the blast damaged a uranium enrichment site, and asserted that it was “no accident.”
Mohammad-Mahdi Esma’ili, Isfahan’s deputy governor in political and security affairs, called the reports “sheer lies” according to the IRNA news agency. An official from the city’s fire department also denied that there had been an explosion.
The mysterious explosion Monday rocked the Iranian city of Isfahan, which hosts a nuclear facility involved in processing uranium fed to the Natanz fuel enrichment facility.
The source and target of the explosion were initially unclear. Some reports claimed it took place in a military base and others said it was a gas explosion.
