Iran's Nuclear Program Reportedly Set Back "Months", Caused By Alleged Israeli Attack: Reports

Click to see full-size image

Iran is to begin reconstruction of the building, damaged in the fire at the Natanz Nuclear facility.

The spokesman of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Behrouz Kamalvandi said that reconstruction would soon begin with a bigger plot of land for advanced equipment, which is supposed to be built there.

He explained that there were no casualties in the fire, but the financial losses were significant.

As the secretariat of the Supreme National Security Council announced, the security bodies now are aware of the cause of accident, but, due to security considerations they provide no comment.

Elaborating on the characteristics of the accident, he said its construction process started seven years ago and it was about to be completed after two years, but, due to issues related to Iran nuclear deal known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), construction works did not continue.

Meanwhile, Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) spokesman Keyvan Khosravi stated that the cause of the incident at the Shahid Ahmadi Roshan Natanz Nuclear Complex has been identified following the technical and security investigations and will be declared in due course for security reasons.

MSM is reporting, citing anonymous Middle Eastern officials, that Israel was responsible for the attack on the Natanz nuclear complex by using a powerful bomb. A member of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps who was briefed on the matter also said an explosive was used.

Israeli officials confirmed nothing on July 5th when asked about the possibility of involvement in an attack on Natanz.

“Everyone can suspect us in everything and all the time, but I don’t think that’s correct,” Defense Minister Benny Gantz said. “Not every event that happens in Iran is necessarily related to us,” he added.

Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi said, “Iran cannot be allowed to have nuclear capabilities.” To that end, he said, “we take actions that are better left unsaid.”

Just since July 2nd, explosions occurred at two power plants in Iran, and there was a chlorine gas leak at a chemical plant, all of which the government described as accidents.

Nothing conclusive has been admitted for any of the incidents, and they are ruled as accidents. The reasons behind the one at the Natanz nuclear facility are reportedly clear, but are yet to be disclosed.

“It’s possible that this incident will slow down the development and expansion of advanced centrifuges,” Behrouz Kamalvandi, spokesman for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, said. “There were advanced equipment and precision measurement devices at this site that were either destroyed or damaged.”

“The damaged warehouse was designed for the final stages of advanced centrifuges and assembly of these machineries,” Kamalvandi said.

  • Zionism = EVIL

    To be honest, it is bullshit and part of the Americunt and Zionist psyops and sheer desperation. Here is the real picture:

    nothing here—are the amerikans stupid enough to engage in piracy against Iranian oil tankers?

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Indeed, there is nothing to see, it is quite obvious. But these small terrorist attacks are very good for Iranian counter-intelligence as they proved good clues about modus-operandi. If this is best Iran’s cowardly enemies can do, then there is not a problem.

      • Assad must stay

        iran should retaliate

        • Zionism = EVIL

          Iranians think in long strategic terms and don’t lash out blindly. If you look around the region, Iran is achieving all its aims. Its enemies are in shambles, its standing in the world is rising, just look at its reach as far as Venezuela. It is about a sign a real STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP agreement with China, the only one of its kind. So be patient. You will see the results sooner than most think.

          • Tommy Jensen

            We Americans also follow a long term strategy and we have met ALL our goals.

            Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Somalia, Sudan, Ukraine are all in our hands today.
            Egypt, Saudi, UAE, Turkey, Ethiopia are all doing our job.
            Europe are occupied in all key positions by our US Deep State Department.

            The rest is noise.

            Hisham al-Hashimi: Leading CIA’s Iraqi expert on armed groups killed in Baghdad.He was currently involved in advising the Iraqi puppet government on the Iran allied PMU.

            Hisham al-Hashimi was killed near his home in the Ziyouna district on Monday night by two gunmen riding a motorbike.

            US installed puppet Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi blamed groups “outside the law”.

            I saw the video of the hit, it was awesomely done.

            It looked so easy too.

            Two motorbikes, with two guys each.

            Hashimi was in a convoy of Toyota SUV’s. His vehicle was totally pumped full of bullets from an AK, then when the shooter ran the clip dry, he eloquently pulled out a handgun and proceeded to shoot that clip into the vehicle too.

            All the while the third car was being pumped full of hot lead.

            First car proceeded forward and was kind of stuck in a narrow alleyway/street.

            All this took place in a densely populated neighborhood.

            Hit teams proceeded to evacuate at their leisure it seemed.

            Somebody from nearby was well positioned to film it all.

            see, and it is enough, that the zionist Soros and international companies give a small change to the rascist BLM, and BLM is now destroying USA from within.

            India and Iran ties are progressing too and Chah Bahar is now working very well. I was there a few months ago and it is busier than all other ports in the Persian Gulf and will link with China’s one belt to Europe and Russia.

    So, the zioracist entity managed to fly the long distance there, presumably with the support of tanker planes, and all that going undetected through Iranian radar defences. AND after the bombing the planes managed to sneak back through the Iranian radar defences undetected !!!

    • Zionism = EVIL

      As even a blind Jew with a head up his arse can see, this was a small bomb and no planes of any kind were involved, some MEK cunt more than likely placed a small explosive device as there is no large explosion signs, it is just a corrugated iron roof hut, hardly a nuclear plant LOL

      • Tommy Jensen

        You dont fool around and “place” small bombs in a highly secured, guarded and surveilled military area. It dont exist.

        • Cromwell

          Maybe you do if you work there.

    • AJ

      Who said anything about an air strike, this seems either a cyber attack or bomb planted by some employee mole with security access to the building.

      • #’~A*QXm(>NRmm]w?dU4vXZ

        A cyber attack, of course, after Stuxnet Iran left its systems wide open so the zioracists could have another go. Only took 10 years to make that decision.

        Or a bomb? Yeah, why not? Or even a surgical strike by drone?

    • Ashok Varma

      Iran is a very capable country and the joint project with India at Chah Bahar is very impressive.
      The traffic recorded at Chabahar Port during the first year of
      operations actually exceeded the minimum guaranteed traffic stated for
      3rd year of operations in the main contract
      India and Iran have always been close allies through thick and thin,
      both before and after the Iranian revolution in 1979. Of great
      significance to both the nations has been the Chabahar Port project
      which also happens to be India’s first overseas port project. Recently,
      diplomats from India, Iran and Afghanistan took stock of the activities
      at the Chabahar Port in South-Eastern Iran one year after its
      inauguration. “The Chabahar Port commenced operations in December 2018,
      since then, we have had as many as 4,846 teus of containers moving from
      India through Chabahar.

  • Assad must stay

    i hope not, iran should not let it go unanswered

  • Tommy Jensen

    We and Israel are prepared to carpet bomb Iran with mini-nukes to defend Japan against an nuclear WMD attack from Iran.
    This is because we know this is part of Iran’s “Full spectrum global Dominance” doctrine that Iran has been doing.
    And this is not the only thing Iran is planning. There is more under the carpet than you think.

    • Cromwell

      Put the crack pipe down.

  • Lazy Gamer

    🤐 No one is taking responsibility?

  • Cromwell

    I think it was a cyber attack,whatever it was it needs a reply.

  • verner

    tells us one thing and that is that the jews in palestine need to be decimated to zero and nowhere to run. Iran is preparing such an end for the jews and together with turkey (erdogan hates the jews in general and netanyahu in particular) it will be a swift march to a liberated palestine.

    The greatest threat to many are the consequences of their own actions.

    In addition to the hypocrisy of Israel (that possesses nuclear weapons), it is likely in time the military aggressions and the many crimes the state of Israel has perpetrated against neighbouring nations (and the suffering it has inflicted on occupied populations) will result in blowback. Indeed, there are indications a regional conflagration is approaching.

    Israel and the US are addicted to war, being an aspect of their hubris. But such hubris is misplaced as will become evident (a lesson that was not heeded by examples such as Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, etc. ). The horrors these nations (and their involved coalition members) have inflicted on other nations they shall likely in time experience (and recognising unfolding developments, sooner than they would like to believe). Indeed, as the state of Israel is seeking to Judaise regions (through gradual ethnic cleansing and expanding annexation/theft of territory) including key Islamic holy sites forming the basis of a Holy war scenario, such as time is approaching:

    – “The gathering holy war. Slowly, Israel is transforming a settler-colonial project against the Palestinians into a battle with the wider Islamic world. It is turning a territorial conflict into a holy war.” (How the Rule of the Rabbis Is Fueling a Holy War in Israel, by Jonathan Cook, Antiwar, February 23, 2019)

    – Hamas says Israeli violations at al-Aqsa will ignite ‘all-out regional war’, PressTV, Oct 21, 2019

    – “The gathering holy war. Slowly, Israel is transforming a settler-colonial project against the Palestinians into a battle with the wider Islamic world. It is turning a territorial conflict into a holy war.” (How the Rule of the Rabbis Is Fueling a Holy War in Israel, by Jonathan Cook, Antiwar, February 23, 2019)

    Interestingly this would also be compatible with Islamic prophecy:

    – “The Last Hour would not come until a person would pass by a grave and wish that he should have been the occupant of that grave because of this calamity…. The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them…. (Sahih Muslim Book 041, Hadith Number 6985).

    References:
    1. “I hope all Israelis will listen carefully to what I say: Netanyahu, his government and military officials did not correctly evaluate the magnitude this war will reach if they succeed to light its fires. What will be its extent, what will be its territory, who will participate on it, who will enter it… Netanyahu, his government and military officials do not know how this war will end if they start it…… I now call first all Jews except the Zionists to detach their considerations from Zionist calculations who lead themselves to their final destruction. And I call on all those who came in occupied Palestine believing the promises that they would find the land of milk and honey to leave. I call them to leave Palestine and go back to the countries from which they came so that they don’t become mere fuel in any war where would lead them the stupid Netanyahu government. For if Netanyahu launched a war in this region, there may be no more time for them to leave Palestine, and there will be no safe place for them in occupied Palestine…… the scale of the massacres committed by Israel against the Palestinian people and the peoples of the region, its partnership with Daesh and its open complicity in the project of partition of our region through its open and eager support to the secession of Kurdistan, all this will push the people of the region to render a capital verdict against them.” [Hezbollah Secretary General Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah]

    Note: While being a perpetrator that continues to masquerade as a victim, the Israelis are also obsessed by the belief that preventing a ‘nuclear armed’ Iran will somehow save the state of Israel from ‘destruction’. Nuclear weapons are however not required by the adversaries of Israel to achieve this.
