Another explosion occurred in Iran, this time at a medical center, which has killed 19 people
At midnight on June 25, an explosion occurred in the Iranian capital Tehran near Parchin military base in eastern Tehran, the Iranian side said yes The gas tank leaked, and the explosion occurred. The Iranian side also stated that the explosion and fire did not occur inside the base, but in the surrounding area; there is further news that the explosion occurred at a natural gas station, and indeed only It is such a facility that I am afraid that an explosion of this magnitude and intensity can occur.
Since Iran’s military base is the largest military explosives production plant in its territory, the base is still The West believes that it is one of the important places for Iran to carry out related nuclear tests and other work, so the explosion incident at this base has attracted attention and speculation from the outside world. However, only 5 days later, in the evening of June 30, another explosion occurred in a medical center in northern Tehran, Iran.
And according to media reports, the explosion has caused 19 deaths and rescuers have rescued 20 people, which means that it is likely that the number of deaths is still It will rise further; in addition, it is reported that the medical center also stores some oxygen tanks in the unexploded premises, so the fire caused by the explosion may cause a secondary explosion at the scene. Regarding the cause of the explosion, the current Iranian news is that the incident was caused by natural gas leaks and short circuits.
Two consecutive natural gas explosions occurred within 5 days, which may imply that Iran is currently in many aspects It is likely that there are serious management vulnerabilities and even device maintenance vulnerabilities. However, although these two short-lived explosions were all natural gas explosions, the conclusions and causes cannot be generalized. As far as the explosion of the Parchin military base in eastern Tehran is concerned, there are actually many suspicious problems, such as Why is there such a leak in the military area, and why is the orange mushroom cloud generated after the explosion?
In short, as far as the explosion at the Parchin military base is concerned, the doubt is still Quite a lot, if this explosion does not have the background of destruction by American and Israeli agents, or the destruction of extreme separatist forces in Iran, and Israel’s attacks on specific targets (in fact, there have been stealth sneakers of Israeli F-35I stealth fighters before Incidents over many major cities in Iran) these factors, then one of the issues directly reflected by this incident is within the Iranian military, especially Iranian Revolution There are huge management issues within the Guard; this issue has been reflected in the recent incidents of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards’ accidental shooting of Ukrainian passenger planes and the accidental destruction of their own warships.
In addition, what the two explosions have in common is not only the explosion of the natural gas storage tank, but also the explosion. Reflects another problem, that is, some of Iran’s infrastructure has serious aging, lack of management, maintenance and other phenomena. This is also easy to understand. After all, Iran has been subject to Western economic sanctions in recent decades. The United States has only The sanctions on Iran were briefly lifted after the nuclear agreement was signed in 2015, but these sanctions were reactivated after the U.S. unilaterally tore up the agreement in 2018; therefore, some key facilities in Iran suffer from aging equipment and lack of maintenance updates. It is also normal to know that even the Air Force fighters responsible for the security of Iranian airspace are facing this phenomenon.
