Israel attacked a nuclear center in Iran


On Sunday, April 11, an accident occurred at the Iranian nuclear facility "Shahid Ahmadi Roshan" in the city of Natanz. The involvement of Israel in this incident, according to The New York Times, was announced by representatives of the American and Israeli special services.


Apparently, the accident at Shahid Ahmadi Roshan occurred due to an explosion that destroyed the internal power system that ensured the operation of the centrifuges. No human casualties or negative impact on the environment were recorded. According to the newspaper, the nuclear facility will be able to resume operations in about nine months. Thus, what happened was a serious blow to the implementation of Iran's nuclear program.

The cause of the explosion could have been a cyberattack carried out with the participation of the Israeli secret service Mossad. This version was dubbed by the Israeli TV company "Kan".

According to the vice-president and head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, Ali Akbar Salehi, the Israeli attack is a "nuclear terrorist act" carried out by the country's enemies due to the failure to withdraw from Tehran. economic sanctions. Salehi also noted that the Iranian authorities reserve the right to take appropriate retaliatory measures.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif also blamed the state's enemies for the Shahid Ahmadi Roshan accident and called for the protection of Iranian nuclear facilities and nuclear physicists involved in the uranium enrichment program.

The Zionists want to avenge their successes in lifting the repressive sanctions against the Iranian people, but we will not allow it. We will take action against the Zionists themselves

- stressed Zarif.

    Israel attacked a nuclear center in Iran

    An act of armed aggression.
    Every state must respond to an act of external aggression, or bend over.
    With its aggressive policy and provocations, sooner or later Israel will get a war and anyone will be blamed for this, but not itself.

      Take a chance! Or name at least that brave man - a daredevil who dares. But I don't see something like that on the horizon. And there are many supporters of Israel in the world. And among the enemies, the Persians, the position is not particularly offensive: "We would be the Jews on the horns, but only the skin is expensive and horns are not cheap now!"

          Questions such as what would happen if, as well as what would happen if would be - rhetorical. And pseudo-historical. If there is no event, then there is nothing to say about it. One could answer you with the words of the hero Hasek: "After all, it was as it was, because somehow it happened, it never happened that way ...". Or in the words of the hero of the merry Rabelais-Pantagruel: "Is it, isn't it, put some tow in your mouth ..." Compare Israel's military budget with the entire annual budget of Iran, which is ten times less than Israel's. And Iran, today, is Israel's only enemy. With the rest - Israel figured it out. Like a man. And the answer to your question is simple: Iran's nuclear facility, top-secret and super-guarded, has been destroyed. Iran, represented by the foreign minister, blamed Israel for this. And that's all ... And Iran is silent. In a rag. And what was, is and will be - not for me, yahont. K- gypsies. Who would have thought, say in 1983, that the USSR would collapse in seven years. And 14 new states will emerge in its place? Or will a prosperous Yugoslavia disappear from the political map of the world? Eritrea will appear? The states will start to fever, and Russia and Ukraine will become sworn enemies? So the price for your question is determined by the innkeeper Palivets from the Prague tavern "At the Chalice".

              Israel will exhibit teeth. To the one who took the risk. As it has happened more than once or twice. That's all that was, that's all that will be. "Our light tanks will pass, one inch at a time, And Muslim women will shout at us and throw their hijabs into the air!" This is my vision of the solution to the issue. But I do not see a single contender at close range. Maybe, you know? Name. Iran? After the destruction of the nuclear facility at Netanz? Not ? So who?

        Iranian missile knocks out Israeli ship near UAE 

        The vessel Hyperion Ray, owned by the Israeli Ray Shipping company and flying the Bahamas flag, was attacked off the coast of the United Arab Emirates (UAE). This was announced on Tuesday, April 13, by the Al-Mayadin TV channel, citing its own sources.
        According to Al-Mayadin, the Israeli side said the ship was attacked by an Iranian missile, presumably launched from an Iranian drone or other vessel. It is clarified that this attack could be Tehran's response to the recent terrorist attack on a nuclear facility in Iranian Natanz, in which the Israeli special services were allegedly involved.
        On April 11, an accident occurred at the Natanz uranium enrichment facility. The Iranian Atomic Energy Organization said the incident was related to the distribution of electricity. As Israeli radio KAN reported, citing anonymous intelligence sources, the cause of the accident was a cyberattack by the Israeli special services Mossad. Israel's involvement in the attack on Iran's nuclear facility was anonymously confirmed in the United States.

          You also forgot to point out that the Iranian oil tanker, entering neutral waters, dumped oil off the Israeli coast. Then our volunteers washed the birds and cleaned the sand on the beaches. But it is unlikely that these, if I may say so, the hostilities, somehow influenced the security of Israel. And even more so on the prospects of its existence. Yes, and the answer is a strike on an Iranian military intelligence vessel 1500 km away. from the Israeli shores was dignified. Like a shot by Silvio in the story of the same name by A.S. Pushkin. Fighting swimmers, unnoticed, reached the bottom of the Iranian ship. Then they could be guaranteed to be sunk together with the crew. But they did not want victims and blew it up a bit. Subtly and elegantly hinting at the inappropriate behavior of the Persians towards a civilian vessel. And they left in English without saying goodbye.

    At our enterprise, during the modernization, German and Japanese sensors were installed, and control valves via the Internet. Although this does not affect the production and quality of steel. But maybe there is a possibility of control interception. All this, when installing this equipment, I not only pointed out, but also explained in writing. Useless. I even had unexplained situations in my presence that our programmers could not explain. What I've done? Disabled some commands that do not affect steel production, put some of the valves to manual control. All this required legal explanations and time, but everyone agreed with me. Although managing and monitoring the process has become more difficult at times. I even considered that in comparison with the old Soviet equipment, I do more actions 100-200 times per shift. Bottom line. Over the past 10 years, more than one specialist has not been trained for my workplace. There are no volunteers. The oldest is 70 years old, and there is no one to replace him.

    The involvement of Israel in this incident, according to The New York Times, was announced by representatives of the American and Israeli special services.

    As far as I understand, the accident occurred as a result of a failure in the power supply system. It is not clear who these mysterious representatives of the American and Israeli special services are. Quite strange behavior for them, especially American, because the incident took place during the negotiations. (As far as I understand, they are not over yet). And why is it for the Israeli special services? In the sense of taking responsibility? Sabotage is undoubtedly in their interests, but why confess and risk getting a response?
    Moreover, the representatives of Iran do not name the perpetrators of the incident, they simply declared it an act of nuclear terrorism.
    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-56708778

    If only Iran is provoked to take action.

    In general, in the retelling of The New York Times, the Air Force, the Israeli Haaretz, everything is clear to everyone, everyone has confessed, the Iranians are looking for a suspect and are eager to take revenge. True, in the end it turns out that basically all these conclusions were made on the basis of the publication of the Iranian site Nournews:

    First comment by the Natanz Incident Technical Team Leader

    The range of possibilities for this incident is currently being thoroughly studied and the necessary information will be provided once the ultimate cause of the incident has been determined.

    The head of the technical team investigating the incident this morning at the martyr Ahmadi Roshan enrichment complex in Natanz told Nournews: “The news published by some foreign media about the cause of today's incident at the Natanz concentrator is based only on the media and has no real basis..
    He added that a technical team to investigate the incident has been present at the Natanz compound since the beginning of the incident and is investigating the causes. A number of possibilities for the occurrence of this incident are currently being carefully explored and the necessary information will be provided once the ultimate cause of the incident has been determined.

    https://nournews.ir/En/News/65531/The-first-comment-from-the-head-of-the-technical-group-investigating-the-incident-at-the-Natanz-site

    It seems to me that at the moment this is the most objective and balanced information, everything else is newspaper hype. It is reasonable to wait for the conclusions of experts.

        Before that, my darling was in sweet Muroms with us, Pesach, a holiday every hour.
        But you yourself called. Us, me in particular, as a representative - "God's chosen specialists". And here is my humble opinion.
        There are not so many options, they are versions of what happened. And Iranian colleagues from the investigative units, together with the operatives, will probably work out the following:
        - sabotage with penetration of the object;
        - cyberattack;
        - a combination of cyber attacks and sabotage;
        - industrial accident.
        When drawing up a plan of investigative actions and operational measures, the following will probably be investigated:
        - issues of access control, compliance with the rules for ensuring the safety of the facility set forth in special regulations;
        - operational reports and official reports on the likelihood of sabotage;
        - involvement of Iranian citizens, including employees, in the incident;
        - negligence of the facility staff;
        - technical condition and serviceability of the equipment at the time of the incident;
        - maintenance, repair, supply of equipment to the object. Accordingly, all contractors and subcontractors;
        - all, without exception, citizens related to the object;
        - the possibility of installing an explosive device on the supplied equipment;
        - the ability to intervene in software control from the outside, or using the installed equipment.
        But conclusions that are not in favor of the Iranian counterintelligence can be drawn already now. Blinked. Obviously. The production accident version must and will of course be verified. Not as the main one. But even if it is confirmed, it will not be announced. Never. The Muslim world will accept such a version as deflection in front of Israel and weakness. And everyone else too.

    Israel attacked a nuclear center in Iran

    - Yes, this is hardly someone's "attack from the outside" at all ...
    - One can only say with certainty ... - who benefits from it ...
    - And it is beneficial to everyone: the USA, Western Europe, Turkey, Israel and ... and ... and Russia as well ...
    - Is it profitable for China ... - Formally not profitable; but in fact, China is also beneficial ... - China is going to seriously cooperate with Iran ... - simply - China is betting on Iran ... - And China itself, first of all, does not need a "nuclear Iran", with its own independent foreign policy ... - China needs a subordinate Iran in everything; those. - Iran ... is a vassal state ... - Something like today's Russia; which just doesn't know ... - how to better serve China ... - This is the kind of Iran that China needs ...
    - So the "nuclear structural capacities" of Iran will be subjected to destruction more (and more than once) ... - And it is not so important ... - who will initiate this destruction ... - maybe even the Iranians themselves (from the fifth column) ; bribed by the Americans ... or the Israelis ... or even the Chinese themselves ...

      And hence the resolution, similar to those imposed by the hero of the novel by I. Ilf and E. Petrov - Polykhaev: "And I will not give beds and washbasins!" In the sense that the Persians cannot see nuclear weapons as their ears without a mirror. You have correctly noted this. So it was, is and will be. Small countries cannot master the entire cycle of nuclear weapons production. We will modestly keep silent about one small but very proud country. Superpowers cannot interfere with large countries. I mean Pakistan, India. I really don't understand how they could have allowed the creation of nuclear weapons in the DPRK. I can only assume that with the tacit consent of the PRC and the USSR. And Iran - clearly falls under the distribution. Neither fish nor fowl.

    Good testicle for dinner. To the 73rd anniversary of Israel's Independence - a Christmas tree gift for Jewish workers. Well, is it really incomprehensible? Bibi told the Persians in accessible Hebrew that they would not have nuclear weapons. With or without a non-proliferation treaty. Do not understand. And Fakhridzade disappeared somewhere, as if it were a sin. A good start would be to find out what it was? The cause of the incident has not been established. So far, one thing is clear: the facility is out of order for at least nine months. Now let's listen to the head of the transport department.
    What does the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Islamic Republic of Iran have to tell us? Ah, that's what ...
    Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif was the first official of the country to directly blame Israel for "an incident that led to the stoppage of uranium enrichment at the Natanz nuclear facility." Speaking on state television on April 12, he said Iran would "take revenge on the Zionists." Who would doubt that?
    It's clear business. Revenge will naturally be terrible. Well, as for Fakhridzade, or mining the other day for 1500 km. off the Israeli coast, an Iranian naval reconnaissance ship. Everything is as usual. Iran will take revenge. As an option: Iran will take terrible revenge.) And the dead stand with scythes. And silence.

    It's boring to live in this world, gentlemen.
