Casually inserted below the headline of what seemed to be just another anti-Iranian article, “Iran Admits Serious Damage to Natanz Nuclear Site, Setting Back Program,” published by the New York Times, is the story of Israel planting the bomb that caused a recent explosion at an Iranian nuclear facility last week.
The report, citing an anonymous source, states that Israel was responsible for the attack on the Natanz nuclear plant, although Israel has not officially admitted their role (they rarely do).
The latest incident comes just one week after another major incident where 19 people died and 14 were injured during an explosion which hit the Sina Athar medical center north of Tehran.
If this is indeed the case, then it is incredibly risky behavior by Israel, and one which could potentially risk a major radiological incident.
The timing of this event is interesting. Why would Tel Aviv be escalating tensions with Iran now?NYT Report: Israel Planted a Bomb at Iranian Nuclear Facility
