You’ve been … Thunderstruck
Never receiving the headlines in the West as in the Middle East, Iran is again suspicious of the State of Israel as the responsible party regarding a massive explosion at an Iranian military base outside the nation’s capital city, long suspected of being a secret nuclear development facility. As reported by the Washington Free Beacon news portal on Oct. 6, 2014, Iran’s Defense Industries Organization (DIO), which operates under the umbrella of the Islamic Republic’s Ministry of Defence, is casting a jaundiced eye that espionage rather than lax safety procedures are responsible for the “strong” and “tremendous explosion” that “shook Eastern Tehran,” which reportedly impacted a 10-mile area.
According to the DIO, the huge blast resulted in the deaths of two individuals identified only as “workers” at the site. The Fars News Service, the Iranian government controlled news agency has reported that a so-called “production plant” in east Tehran, near the Parchin nuclear facility, rocked at least the eastern part of the city. State media has generically stated the blast happened at an “explosive material factory” near the Parchin site.
