In conflicting Iranian accounts about the reality of what happened in the nuclear reactor, the Iranian news agency confirmed that an explosion occurred 20 km from the Natanz facility, while sources close to the Iranian Revolutionary Guards stated that the Natanz facility was not damaged, and that Iranian air defenses downed a march near the nuclear reactor. .
This comes as Iranian television said that the explosion in Natanz was caused by a missile test to respond quickly to any possible attack.
On Saturday evening, the Iranian “Danishjo” news agency reported that an explosion occurred in the sky of the Natanz nuclear facility located in the central Iranian province of Isfahan.
The agency affiliated with the hard-line fundamentalist movement added, quoting local sources, that an explosion accompanied by thick smoke was heard in the sky of the Natanz nuclear facility.
She explained that official Iranian government sources have not yet announced the occurrence of the accident and its causes.
The Natanz facility has been subjected to several attacks, and is one of the most important nuclear facilities, in which uranium is enriched by 60%.
The last attack on this nuclear facility was last April, and Iran accused Israel of being behind the attack.
Mossad recruits nuclear scientists
The Israeli intelligence service Mossad had recruited a number of Iranian nuclear scientists to blow up one of the safest nuclear facilities in Iran, which actually took place last April, according to a report by The Jewish Chronicle.
According to the report, Israeli agents contacted up to 10 Iranian scientists and were recruited to participate in the destruction of the underground centrifuge hall (A1000) in the city of Natanz, where the Iranian scientists believed they were working for Iranian anti-regime organizations operating from abroad.
The report indicated that the explosives used were transported by a drone collected by Iranian scientists, and some explosives were smuggled hidden in lunch boxes inside a catering truck.
The report added that the ensuing devastation caused chaos at the highest levels of Iran’s leadership. The blast destroyed 90 percent of the nuclear plant’s centrifuges, delaying progress toward a nuclear bomb and shutting down the main complex for up to nine months.
Based on the report, new details about the operation are among the startling secrets of three connected Mossad operations that took place over the 11 months of sabotage in Iran (two raids on the Natanz complex using explosives, in July 2020 and April 2021. Then a raid on the Iranian Centrifugal Technology Company) TESA, in the city of Karaj, which is located 30 miles northwest of Tehran).
The report pointed out some points that helped in the explosions of the nuclear facility, including:
* Customers have hidden explosives in building materials used in the construction of the Natanz centrifuge hall since 2019. Then they detonated it in 2020.
* Agents slipped a disassembled and armed quadcopter into Iran and used it to launch missiles at the TESA site in Karaj in June.
* The three operations were planned together over the course of 18 months by a team of 1,000 technicians, analysts and a spy, plus dozens of agents on the ground.
The report indicated that the three-part attack on Iran’s nuclear infrastructure was carried out by (Mossad) without cooperation with the United States.
According to the report, a source said that the motives of Iranian scientists are all different. The Mossad discovered what they desperately want in their lives and presented it to them. There was an inner circle of scientists who knew more about the process, and an outer circle who helped them, but had less information. After the explosion, the responsible scientists were taken to a safe place. The source added, “They are all fine today.”
