On June 2, a huge fire broke out at Tondguyan Refinery – an oil refinery in the southern part of the Iranian capital Tehran.
According to Iranian media, the incident led to the temporary suspension of operations at the facility, but there were no casualties.
The official version of Iranian authorities regarding the incident is that it was caused by “a leak at a liquid gas pipeline at the facility” that “sparked the fire”.
Shaker Khafaii, head of the Tehran Oil Refining Co, which operates the refinery, ruled out the possibility of sabotage. However, the fire at the refinery happened just a few hours after Iran’s largest navy ship the Kharg caught fire and later sank in the Gulf of Oman.
Earlier in 2021, key Iranian infrastructure objects were already targeted by a series of mysterious ‘accidents’, which Iran prefers to call not linked among themselves.
