On June 23, Iranian authorities thwarted a “sabotage attack” on a building of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) in Karaj city, 40 km to the west of the capital Tehran.
According to the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB), the sabotage attack was thwarted without any human or material losses. The attack was foiled before it could inflict any damage on the AEOI’s building.
“Investigations are underway to identify perpetrators behind the act of sabotage,” IRIB said in a report.
Official Iranian sources are yet to reveal more details on the attack attempt. Nevertheless, social media channels affiliated with the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corp (IRGC) claimed that a drone attempted to attack the building and was shot down.
The incident came following a series of suspected sabotage attacks targeting Iran’s nuclear program in recent months. Israel was blamed on several occasions.
In April, a sabotage act allegedly prepared by the Israeli intelligence targeted Iran’s Natanz fuel enrichment plant. More recently, a “temporary emergency shutdown” was reported at Iran’s Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant.
