The network discusses the possible causes of the explosion at a rocket plant in Iran

Arab News today reports an incident at an Iranian defense industry.


It is alleged that a powerful explosion occurred at the rocket factory, which “led to the appearance of a fireball observed many kilometers from the epicenter”. Possible causes of the explosion are discussed.

On the pages of Arab News, it is stated that the explosion occurred about 20 km east of Tehran, at a military facility in the mountains of Alborz. The material says that the enterprise of the military industry has underground tunnels, where the parameters of various missiles, including cruise ones, are studied.

The statement by Theodore Karasik, a member of the Gulf State Analytics Analytical Council in Washington, is cited. He notes that Israel has been attempting to launch cyber attacks against Iranian industrial facilities.

T. Karasik:

The ongoing cyber war between Iran and Israel is not new. In April, Iranian cyber forces attacked Israeli infrastructure, in particular water facilities. The following month, Israeli cyber forces retaliated against Iran’s military facilities and ports. They attacked the network of one of the ports of Iran, which led to a collapse.

At the same time, an article citing an unnamed source stated that the cause of the explosion could be sabotage in an Iranian factory.
But expert Karasik notes that sabotage at an Iranian missile plant is unlikely.

Expert:

The tactics of installing defective parts from the supply chain cannot be ruled out.

According to an analyst at Gulf State Analytics, the incident at a plant near Tehran could be a continuation of the “virus war” that has been going on for 10 years and which began with the use of the Stuxnet network virus.

According to U.S. intelligence, the facility in the Alborz Mountains is one of the largest industrial test centers in the Middle East.
The press speculates that the explosion at an Iranian enterprise could be the result of the actions of the American side, which decided to avenge the missile attacks of its military bases in Iraq.

    I am more inclined that the Jews from Mossad were fooling around ... Israeli intelligence in Iran is advanced ... Jews know almost everything about Hezbollah’s operations ... where they get the riddle from.

      Finance is everything .. In Iran, there are a lot of opponents of the current government .. Over the past few years, a dozen Iranian nuclear scientists have been killed who were directly involved in the development of a nuclear program

              Israeli intelligence service "Mossad" is involved in the death of Iranian nuclear physicist Ardeshir Hassanpur, writes the British The Sunday Times newspaper.

              Al-Arabia TV Channel spread the message that "Mossad agents" liquidated several operatives of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps of Iran, who worked in southern Libya.

              The body of one of the high-ranking commanders of the Shiite terrorist organization Hezbollah, Ali Mohammed Yunis, was found with gunshot wounds near his car on Saturday afternoon, and Yunis's car was ambushed while spying on one of the suspects in cooperation with the Israeli special services. reports Iranian agency "Fars".

    It seems that Iran simply happened a man-made disaster that once occurred in potentially explosive enterprises.
    It is interesting that the universal computerization of industrial and social facilities, born to improve all parameters, is now one of the weak points of any state. If earlier, in order to disable a large port, it had to be “bombarded” with bombs and missiles, now, all this can be done by several people sitting at the monitors in comfortable chairs, perhaps thousands of kilometers away. from the object.
    Cyber ​​war has ceased to be a beautiful word about the future, and has become a routine in just 10-15 years.

                    The New York Times wrote that the Stuxnet (worm) cyber espionage program was secretly inserted into the computers of German equipment manufacturer Siemens and an Iranian company.
                    The purpose of these beacons was to collect information about how a computer from a plant in Natanz interacted with centrifuges for uranium enrichment, and send this data back for analysis and provide an opportunity to control the process.

    All this is called sucking sensations out of the finger. Some fables are invented when there was a banal leak of liquefied gas from tanks at one of the sites of a gigantic industrial complex. The gas caught fire and exploded, without seriously damaging anything except the tanks themselves, only the dry grass on the mountain caught fire.
    This can be seen both from the footage shown by Iranian TV from the scene of the incident, and from satellite images.
    Here are the footage of the exploded vault

    And these are satellite images before and after, where you can clearly see a small trace of the explosion of the store itself and black traces of burnt grass and shrubs to the side of it.

    But what is there to discuss? What, we or the amers did not have this, due to sloppiness? Here is the same ...
    I wonder what the Iranians themselves will say, what version they will have. But I think that they will say the same thing - an accident.

    Yes, this discussion will be somewhat akin to the expression of the Christomatic character who was asked a question about the book by B. Pasternak "Doctor Zhevago". He replied. "I have not read KNigu, but I know that it is anti-Soviet." So here, too, the reasons for the explosion are unknown (most likely a violation of safety at work, but many "know that the book is anti-Soviet", that is, it is a sabotage of the United States and Israel
