On November 12, a explosion destroyed multiple buildings from a Iran military base, close to the city of Bid Kaneh. For the moment its unknown of this was a sabotage or simply a accident, as Teheran authorities say.
The Institute for International Science and Security released evidence of the explosion that happened on November 12. Satellite images captured by a commercial Digital Globe satellite.
The Guardian reported at that time that the explosion was so powerful that it shacked the windows of buildings in Teheran, located at a distance of 30 miles. 17 soldiers were killed then, including General Hassan Moghaddam, the architect of the Iranian nuclear weapons program.
At that time, Iran authorities said that the explosion was a accident and that everything happened while they were moving some weapons and missiles.
The brother of General Moghaddam told a newspaper that the explosion happened during the testing of some intercontinental missiles.
Others speculated that the boss of the Iran nuclear weapons program was the target of Israeli intelligence, Mossad. Western officials denied the involvement of Israel int his case.
The satellite images appear in the context in which Iran General Amir Ali Hajizadeh, announced this week that Iran is ready to go to war if the country is threatened by a foreign military intervention.
On Monday afternoon however, a new powerful explosion was heard in the city of Isfahan, which hosts a uranium processing plant, which is a major element of Iran’s nuclear weapons program.
