- Israel Thought to be Behind Another Explosion in Iran
by https://www.middleeastmonitor.com/ , 20 July 2020
An explosion at a power station in Iran’s Isfahan Province yesterday has prompted speculation about its cause. There have been a number of mysterious blasts damaging Iranian infrastructure in recent weeks.
The managing director of Isfahan’s electricity company, Said Mohseni, told state-run IRNA news agency that the blast was caused when a “worn out transformer… at Isfahan’s Islamabad thermal power plant exploded at around 5am” on Monday. There were no reported casualties.
Two hours after the explosion, the facility returned to normal work, with Isfahan’s power supply continuing uninterrupted. “The damaged equipment is being repaired and replaced,” Mohseni added.
Although the blast was dismissed by Iran as the result of faulty equipment and technical difficulties, that claim has been called into question, with speculation that Israel is behind this and earlier attacks.
