Three explosions were heard in western Tehran on Tuesday, in an area where Iran carries out missile research and storage, according to a Tweet by a BBC Persian journalist. It was not immediately clear if there were injuries or damage in the incident

I wonder if this could be related to the Syria attacks as well? It took place at a Missile storage facility, and Israel has come out and said that the attack the other day was on a shipment of arms from Iraq. www.jpost.com...

Tuesday's report of explosions came days after Israel allegedly carried out two air strikes in Syria over the weekend, targeting Iranian-supplied Fateh-110 surface-to-surface missiles destined for Hezbollah.

I also find it odd that an Israel news outlet seems to be one the first reporting on this.

Well the strike on syria was aimed at a bunker holding Iranian missiles. Didn't Israel get the go ahead from Obama as well? So it will be interesting to see but iran doesn't have nucs yet so not sure how it could be justified.

Same way they justify targeted assassinations of scientists in Iran.

Short answer:

"Who is gonna stop us?"

My prediction is someone was smoking too close to the payload.

Iran is saying it was an accident...


Iranian officials said the blast was caused by an accident as soldiers moved munitions at the base in Bidganeh, near Shahriar, 45 km. west of the Iranian capital. The base is also believed to be the storage center for some of Iran’s most-advanced long-range ballistic missiles, such as the Shahab 3.


Jerusalem Post....so...

Will iran blame Israel or the USA or say it was an accident?. + if a attack by some one will iran go to war with Iraq. In revenge for becoming allies with the US. Or for the iran Iraq war

Good point on Israel being the ones to break the news to the western world. Could this have been incompetence?

Is anybody saying how bad the accident was? With three explosions heard 45 miles away from the capital city of iran. I can see a lot of rumors of a Israel attack in iran
