A large explosion has occurred near a military complex in eastern Tehran, according to Iranian media.

Local sources who spoke to semi-official news agency Mehr report a loud explosion rocking the neighbourhood of Sorkheh Hesar, east of the Iranian capital.

Videos circulating on social media show a large, bright explosion illuminating the night.

There has been no independent confirmation of reports.

Sorkheh Hesar is located near Parchin, the site of a large military base used by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Force (IRGC), as well as multiple weapons factories.

First thing that usually occurs is Isreal, but then I don't want to jump to conclusions - after all, I'm not the media ;)

Report: Massive Explosion in Tehran, Blackout in Shiraz

Hana Levi Julian

4 Tammuz 5780 – June 26, 2020

 

Multiple Middle Eastern sources are reporting a massive explosion took place around midnight, on Thursday night/Friday either in or near the Iranian capital city of Tehran. Speculation is rife as to the cause and exact locations of the explosions. The Arabic language Shehab News Agency tweeted “A big explosion was heard in Tehran,” but did not provide further details.”

The event in Tehran was described as a “loud explosion, followed by a bright light that was as light as day,” according to MidEast blogger/analyst NZIV. [Videos below.] According to the MidEast blogger/analyst Abu Ali Express, Iranian officials have admitted there was an explosion. He added that a senior official in the Iranian emergency services claimed that ambulances have not yet been called out to the area of the explosion.

Sources reported a power outage in the city of Shiraz as well, approximately an hour before the explosion near Tehran, leaving 1.2 million households without electricity. Again, the speculation is that was due to an explosion or incident at a Shiraz power plant.

ISNA, The government-controlled Iranian Student News Agency is claiming it was an explosion and fire at an industrial fuel facility.

Mystery Blasts: Iran Confirms Target Was Advanced Uranium-Enrichment Centrifuges

(CNSNews.com) – Iran reported another in a series of unexplained explosions at the weekend, as officials confirmed that a previous incident last Thursday had targeted a key facility in the regime’s nuclear program, a center where advanced centrifuges are being developed.

Saturday’s blast took place at a power station in Ahvaz in southwestern Iran, triggering a “massive blaze” that took firefighters two hours to bring under control, the official IRNA news agency reported. No injuries were reported in the fire, which temporarily disrupted electricity supply in the oil-rich Khuzestan province.:snip:

Iran Hints at Cyber Attack on Centrifuge Production Facility

Iran is stewing over the potential loss of its most advanced centrifuge production plant after some kind of explosion and fire severely damaged it.

 

Naturally, the Iranians are being pretty closemouthed about the incident. They haven’t said much about the fire and explosion at what was suspected to be a nuclear research facility in the mountains outside of Tehran, either.:snip:

Third explosion reported inside Iran in past week: video

2020-07-05

BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:20 A.M.)  – Another powerful explosion occurred in Iran, as the official news agency of the Islamic Republic reported a blast at the Madah Zarjan gas station in the city of Ahvaz, southwestern Iran.

“The explosion resulted from a fire in the station, which was caused by a blast at one of the power transformers in it,” the head of the fire department in the Ahvaz province, Ibrahim Kanbari, said, adding that “five fire trucks and 15 rescuers were sent to put out the fire, and there is no information about the area of the fire,” the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) reported.

 

This incident is the third on Iranian soil in a week, as it was preceded by an explosion and a fire at the Sina medical center, which killed 19 people and injured 14 others, followed by an explosion at a nuclear reactor.

Three-quarters of Natanz centrifuge assembly hall destroyed - nuke experts

Security expert David Albright told the ‘Post’ that some of the damage is likely irreparable.

Nearly three quarters of Iran's main centrifuge assembly hall was destroyed by the recent explosion there, Institute for Science and International Security (ISIS) president David Albright has told The Jerusalem Post.

Albright said that this latest revelation is based on two new satellite overviews showing a much fuller picture than footage that was released last weekend, indicating that the vast majority of the centrifuge assembly hall was wiped out.

This could mean there will be increased delay to Iran's nuclear program, since it will have to recover from the incident.

“It is clear that a major explosion took place, destroying nearly three-quarters of the main centrifuge assembly hall, generating a fire that blackened a major portion of the building, the blackening visible where the roof had been blown away by the explosion,” Albright said.

How have Iran's intelligence forces broken down in face of explosions?

What the world is witnessing right now is someone hitting Iranian nuclear and conventional weapons and IRGC facilities practically at will.

YONAH JEREMY BOB  

JULY 10, 2020

Iran is facing a total intelligence breakdown.

With another explosion on Thursday night, reportedly at an Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps facility, the question is not only how anyone has pulled up to seven attacks off in around two weeks, but how has the Islamic Republic repeatedly failed to stop them.

Something happening in Iran

Scott Johnson

July 10 2020

Reuters notes in its report from Dubai last night regarding an explosion in western Tehran today: “There have been several explosions around Iranian military, nuclear and industrial facilities since late June.” Jerusalem Post intelligence correspondent Yonah Jeremy Bob has filed the intensely interesting column “How have Iran’s intelligence forces broken down in face of explosions?” Subhead: “What the world is witnessing right now is someone hitting Iranian nuclear and conventional weapons and IRGC facilities practically at will.” Debkafile has more in its characteristically speculative July 5 report.

Thanks to President Trump, we are no longer in league with Iran. We have no obligation to protect the regime’s nuclear program. We no longer refrain from calling out the Iranian regime for what it is. We are not blowing the whistle on Israel or whoever else might seek to retard Iran’s nuclear program. It is even conceivable that we might have a hand in it ourselves. You never know. And to think that Joe Biden can’t wait to crank our one-sided love affair with these America-hating brutalitarians back up where Obama left it.
