Major Explosion Rocks Iran Again, the third explosion in 3 weeks



An explosion rocked western Tehran on Friday, according to state media reports, causing widespread power outages in two residential and nervous Iranian areas awakened for the third consecutive week by an early morning explosion.

The exact location of Friday’s explosion was unclear, but analysts said there are several military and training facilities in the area that could be subject to sabotage. A cause was not immediately determined.

“There are two underground structures, a site associated with chemical weapons research and an unidentified military production site,”

; said Fabian Hinz, an Iranian military expert and research associate at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies.

It was the third major explosion that occurred in Iran between midnight and 3am for three consecutive weeks. The first two explosions occurred in the main military and nuclear bases – in Khojir, home to the country’s largest missile production facility; and at the Natanz nuclear base, in a building that housed the centrifuge complex.
