Iranian officials revealed on Monday that several “new acts of sabotage” had taken place at its controversial Arak nuclear reactor facility and that other so-called “enemy plots” had been carried out at separate key nuclear sites.
The reported acts of sabotage were spotted during inspections of the facility by Iranian intelligence forces and later reported by the country’s Atomic Energy Organization (AEOI), according to the Fars News Agency.
“Intelligence inspections of the nuclear facilities indicated that some pumps of the second circuitry of Arak’s IR40 project had undergone mechanical operations in a bid to disrupt the routine work of the power plant,” Asqar Zare’an, the AEOI’s deputy chief for nuclear protection and security, was quoted as saying over the weekend.
It is unclear how these faulty pumps made their way into the reactor and Iranian authorities have yet to name the contractor who imported them.
I would not be surprised that we found out the pumps were made in the U.S. or Sweden's Flygt pumps.
