Another ‘Mystery’ Blast Rocks Iran Power Plant

Support SouthFront

The series of mysterious incidents and explosions continues in Iran.

On July 4, a fire broke out at the Shahid Medhaj Zargan power plant in the city of Ahvaz in southwestern Iran and a chlorine leak sent dozens of employees to the emergency room at a petrochemical plant in the same region, according to Iranian media.

Initially, Fars News Agency reported that the fire at the Zargan power plant broke out as a result of a transformer explosion. Later, a spokesman for the Iranian electricity industry later told Iranian media that the “connection” of one of the transformers caused the fire.

Meanwhile, 70 people were injured due to a chlorine gas leak at the Karun Petrochemical Company, located south of Ahvaz. The leak occurred after a pipe from a tank at the site ruptured. The cause of the incident is being investigated.

    1. Zionism = EVIL says:

      The fire in Ahvaz is most likely faulty older equipment malfunction. This station dates back to pre-revolutionary era and had not been modernized. Every fire or accident should not be taken as Americunt or Zionist cunts terrorism, albeit they are desperate and trying hard.

  2. Brother Ma says:

    Way too many coincidences .we have sabotage and /or computer viruses again .

    Why can’t they build a plant with no internet facility ? Ie like most plants were before the web came out. Yes , I know it is a stupid question but please tell me how it was done previously . It worked to make all other countries into nuclear powers so why not Iran? Build in redundancy or build as analogue pre -web comms and controls. It would certainly make it harder for these things to happen.

    1. BMWA1 says:

      Analog equipment in other words…like the old nitro engine temp gauges.

      1. Brother Ma says:

        I”m not aware of engineering terms but thanks. I will look it up.

    2. Daily Beatings says:

      These systems are isolated, there no internet connectivity. Even the Stuxnet bot was released via removable media, no hacking involved. Most likely a Katsa or Sayamin was able to access the facility and deploy the payload.

        Thank you and so it appears sabotage by traitors or Israeli commandos.

    Didn’t Pompeo and the talking heads in the U.S. cry for months about Iranian terrorism 3 tankers had their hulls scratched as if it was the end of the world? The damage on those tankers did not leak any significant amount of fuel/chemicals, no loss of life, and was repairable. Now someone is hitting Iran with major infrastructure damage, eh, no big deal.

    BTW in a way I hope it’s cyber. If these are missile attacks and Iran cannot even detect them that is really bad news.

    1. Zionism = EVIL says:

      The reality is that the Americunts, Zionists, Britfaggots and Saudi cowards are engaged in a sustained desperate terrorist attack on Iran as the arms embargo is coming to an end and their “maximum pressure” has utterly failed. There have been 4 relatively major cyber and terror attacks on mostly soft targets in Natanz, North Tehran and this latest fire in a minor power station in Ahvaz in southern Iran. Most of the terrorists are MEK and other CIA and western recruited Kurds and minuscule segment of marginalized treacherous Iranians. These attacks are relatively insignificant and will make no difference to Iran’s policies or military position. If anything, they are helping garner more nationalistic support and strengthening the position of the hardliners. I expect the deadbeat Americunt losers and Zionist parasites to increase their terrorism, but they will fail. It is sheer impotent desperation and Iranians are learning a lot of their modus operandi and adopting new counter-intel skills.

        and building bigger better to replace what was lost, the blessed nation of Iran will always be victorious, they have God as their mightieste defender

        1. Jens Holm says:

          More like lack of contraseption.

        2. guest says:

          Iran is really blessed and has always overcome its adversaries for over three millennia now.

          1. Assad must stay says:

            True :)))

      i agree with you here!
      Cyber attack means problems for iran
      bombs mean a stealth fighter just flew in and bombed them
      Sabotage means they have internal security problems!
      Iran has problems!

      1. chris chuba says:

        Some problems are easier to manager than others.

    Israel. Admit it!
    Confess the world, spit out all of your guts, sing like a bird, dance like a bear, tell EVERYTHING you know to Uncle!

    1. Volker says:

      If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, it’s ‘Highly Likely’ with ‘Near Certainty’ a duck, or in this and so many cases the usual ZioNAZI State-Terrorist/War-Criminal Scumbags.

    2. Free man says:

      Israel is the easy answer as usual.
      It is more likely that it is an Iranian underground movement that operates against the mullahs regime.

  5. Volker says:

    Unfortunately not the first series of CIA Mossad KSA MEK acts of unprovoked Sabotage + Terrorism Attacks of aggression on Iranian soil with the assistance of Cyber-Terrorism und surely not the last, this is going on for decades.

  6. Icarus Tanović says:

    How about Yemenis, and international resistance to American Zionistic Wahhabi Satanistic terror hits some targets inside SA? Or UAE? For example that hotel that is built on artificial island?

    1. verner says:

      or a swarm of missiles on the jews nuclear operation in the negeve desert or tit for tat directed assassinations on any jew anywhere known to support the palestinian jews war efforts and thus being accomplishes in the war crimes perpetrated by the jews in palestine – 250 million arabs in the adjoining countries should be able to clear palestine of all jews in no time.

  7. verner says:

    all these minor efforts by the palestinian jews, either in syria or in Iran, won’t deter Iran from going forward with the ‘clear palestine of all jews’ plan. it’s a project that will come to fruition sooner rather than later and minor set backs, like the ones the jews are providing, won’t stop the forward movement of the plan. and please note, that it’s the jews own doings that has caused Iran to take these initiatives knowing fully well that there is no peace for the middle east as long as there remains one jew in palestine. so Iran is right when it intensifies the search for spies acting for and on behalf of ether the palestinian jews (or jews embedded in societies elsewhere) or the yankee-twats or the pseudo-fags in westminster,

  8. Free man says:

    Not every fart that a random mullah makes in Iran is an external cyber attack. On the other hand, when you sow the wind you will reap the whirlwind.
