Iran nuclear facility bombed, 240 trapped
Unconfirmed reports are trickling out of the Middle East stating last Monday an explosion rocked the Fordo nuclear enrichment facility in Iran. Western news agencies haven’t corroborated the story; however, World News Daily is reporting that Hamidreza Zakeri, formerly a member of Iran’s Ministry of Intelligence and National Security, has confirmed the facility had been hit.
While accurate information can be difficult to get out of this notoriously secretive regime, there are reportedly over 240 people trapped underground in Iran’s second largest nuclear facility.
Rumors of this being pulled off by Israel are already circulating. Israel has been an outspoken opponent of Iran becoming nuclear capable, and in 1981 Israel was able to dismantle Iraq’s nuclear program through a bombing raid — known as Operation Opera – on largely centralized, above ground facilities.
Learning from Iraq’s mistake, Iran has dispersed its facilities throughout the country and built them deep underground, making a similar raid much more difficult to execute, if not impossible. The Fordo facility was carved into a mountain for this very reason.
If this report is accurate, this latest sabotage attempt would be consistent with past events used to hinder the Islamic regime’s nuclear ambitions. These include the assassinations of three key scientists and an attempt on a fourth involved in Iran’s nuclear development program, as well as the STUXNET worm that infiltrated components made by Siemen’s used to regulate the centrifuges critical to the enrichment process.
Despite these events and intense international pressure, Iran shows little interest in halting their desire to achieve a nuclear weapon. For this reason, Iran will likely experience events similar to these in the future.
