On July 3, local time, the spokesman of the Supreme National Security Council of Iran, Keivan Hoslawi (Keivan) Khosravi) said that the Iranian authorities have identified the cause of the accident at the Natanz nuclear facility in Iran and will announce details later.

Islamic Republic of Iran Radio and Television (IRIB) quoted Hosravi on the 3rd as saying that it has studied various possible causes of the accident at the Natanz nuclear facility on the 2nd, the consequences of the damage and The degree was accurately investigated. He added that for safety reasons, the details and causes of the accident will be announced in due course.

According to Iran’s Mehr News Agency reported on July 2, local time, an accident occurred in a building under construction at the Natanz nuclear facility in Iran, resulting in the destruction of the plant.

The spokesman of the Iranian Atomic Energy Organization Kamalwandi said that the plant under construction is located in an open area of ​​the Natanz nuclear facility. The accident in the plant did not cause any casualties, nor did he report to Natanz. There are facilities and buildings causing damage. Since the plant is not in operation, there is no need to worry about any risk of nuclear leakage, and the accident did not cause injuries.

The Natanz nuclear facility is Iran’s largest uranium enrichment facility and one of several Iranian nuclear facilities monitored by the International Atomic Energy Agency. It was subjected to cyber attacks from the United States and Israel 10 years ago.

The New York Times of the United States quoted speculative reports from sources in the Middle East intelligence agency as saying that the accident was caused by an explosive device installed in the factory. The source said the explosion destroyed most of the factory building where the new centrifuge is located. However, the report said that the incident was not ruled out as an industrial accident.

The Associated Press reported that a fire broke out in a centrifuge production plant, possibly due to sabotage. The report pointed out that this”fire” may reignite the wider tension in the entire Middle East.

The News Agency of the Islamic Republic of Iran also published a review article that stated that there was a risk of attacks from the United States and Israel.
