It would be more effective if it blew up outside of the silo.
Otherwise it would be just a bomb going off underground, does not really do much.
Major-General Giora Eiland, Israel's former director of national security, told Israel's army radio that the Isfahan blast was no accident. "There aren't many coincidences, and when there are so many events there is probably some sort of guiding hand, though perhaps it's the hand of God," he said.

The circumstances would matter. Iran firing in defense or retaliation is quite different from some other country blowing up a hypothetical Iranian nuke (that was not launched by Iranians) as an unprovoked strike. Collateral damage under the first circumstance is more justified than it would be under the latter. But since Iran is soon to be rubble it's all academic.
