Explosion At Iranian Military Site Known For Nuclear Testing: Official Version Is Gas Explosion

In the early hours of June 26th, an explosion took place in Parchin, east of Tehran.

At about 12:30 a.m. local time a video of an explosion was published in the social media showing a loud sound and a strange orange light that looked like a sunset.

 

Parchin hosts a military base in which, reportedly, nuclear activity had been carried out by Iran. The Parchin military complex is home to Iran’s largest production of rockets & alleged nuclear related testing.

Defense ministry spokesman Davoud Abdi told state TV the blast happened at a gas storage facility in a “public area” of Parchin rather than the military base.

The fire had been put out and no casualties had been reported, he added, but gave no details about the cause of the blast.

“Our colleagues are present on the ground and investigating the incident carefully,” Abdi said.

Saudi media outlet Al Arabiya reported that the explosion took place at a military base in Parchin, east of Tehran, hedging it may have been a gas explosion, but speculation on social media soon run rampant, with some claiming that the blast was the result of a power plant outage or a malfunction in the process of disposing of a large number of munitions.

In 2014, the military site was suspected to have been damaged by a fire or explosion but investigations by the International Atomic Energy Agency were hampered by a lack of access.

In 2015, the IAEA concluded the following:

“A range of activities relevant to the development of a nuclear explosive device were conducted in Iran prior to the end of 2003 as a coordinated effort, and some activities took place after 2003. The Agency also assesses that these activities did not advance beyond feasibility and scientific studies, and the acquisition of certain relevant technical competences and capabilities. The Agency has no credible indications of activities in Iran relevant to the development of a nuclear explosive device after 2009.”

    This is a gas tank explosion next to the visitor parking. Some MEK arsehole may have left an explosive devise but there no real damage to the facility.

      explosion in Iran and I assumed right off the bat that it must be the ever evil jews doing what they are doing and have done for a long long time on a continuous basis, to cause mayhem and disrupt the ordinary progress in society of their perceived enemies. but even so and despite what you say, I would still suspect the jews (or MEK under direction of the jews (in palestine or in the disjointed states of A)).

      1. Zionism = EVIL says:

        Correct, I just saw the real thing, no damage to the facility as 90% of it is in a mountain over 700 meters deep and more than 6 kms of tunnels. It was a propane gas storage for heating next to the visitor parking and not even a few cars were damaged. To get inside the facility is next to impossible. The Jew cunts are getting more desperate as Iran and China are about to showcase a 4th generation fighter.

          hahahaha that is grate, God is truly on the side of Iran and not on the side of the FUKUS

        “explosion in Iran and I assumed right off the bat that it must be the ever evil jews…” – LOL. When you have a diarrhea, you blame the Jews. So an explosion in Iran is obviously not brainer for you.LOL.

        1. Superfly says:

          Did an Iranian fuck your mamasan?

          1. Free man says:

            My dad is Iranian. LOL.
            But I admit, your responses are very intelligent.

          2. Superfly says:

            I was right :)

          3. Free man says:

            Even a Broken Clock Is Right Twice a Day :)

        2. Concrete Mike says:

          I agree, its not the jews that caused the explosion.

          But the zionist will spin this into something its not, to slander Iran, after all, thats why your here aint it?

          1. Zionism = EVIL says:

            There is nothing to spin as it was just a gas tank. Most news agencies don’t even consider it worthwhile even to print. You can do a google search and there is nothing to it. The Zionist cunts are just desperate these days.

          2. Free man says:

            I write my opinion on the mullahs regime, and it is true that my opinion is not positive. I know what they are doing to their people.
            It also makes me laugh that stupid people are looking for a boogie man to blame him for all their troubles.
            But why do you feel the need to respond to what I write about the mullahs regime? Why is it so difficult for you to read criticism of this regime?

    2. Superfly says:

      Social media shows a few damaged cars and fortunately, the explosion did not cause any casualties, noting that the fire resulting from the blast was also controlled after prompt action by fire fighting personnel. This is a north Tehran non-residential area, so no casualties.

      Got a link to that article?

    4. Sylvain Jeuland says:

      Thanks, I have found the Pepe Escobar’s article on Asia Times, I read it now

  2. Free man says:

    I wonder when satellite imagery will be released and we’ll see what really happened.

    1. guest says:

      LOL, get over a it.

      1. Free man says:

        Why ?
        It took the Mullahs regime 3 days to admit that they had shot down the Ukrainian aircraft. And they have not yet delivered the black boxes to the French.
        So any reasonable person should suspect they are lying.

        1. Superfly says:

          Iranians fucked you mama? you are angry all the time ;D

        2. Concrete Mike says:

          Do you blame Iran for not giving the evidence to the euro trash after MH17?
          Its just asling for more fabrications against them.

          1. Free man says:

            The mullahs regime stated that they would hand over the black boxes to the French. But in the end of the day they didn’t.
            I wonder why you support a regime that oppresses its people.

    I gues the Iranians are practicing on themselves how it feels like to be bombed, they will find out eventually.
