New Explosions Heard In Tehran Near Missile Facility
According to the BBC's Persian reporter, 3 large blasts were heard in western Tehran, coming from the direction of a large facility where the Iranian military stores missiles and conducts tests.The explosions were loud enough to be clearly heard by multiple residents of the city.
The Iranian officials are saying that the blast was caused by an accident in moving munitions at the base in Bidganeh, near Shahriar, 45 km. west of Tehran. Bidganeh is also believed to be the storage center for some of Iran’s most advanced ballistic missiles, like the Shahab 3.
Could be, but there were three separate explosions, according to what the BBC's reporter tweeted. So if it was an accident involving munitions, something else blew up as well...or it was a 'work accident' the Iranians would rather not discuss, or it was sabotage, with timed explosions.
Given that someone just took out a whole shipment of Hezbollah-bound Iranian missiles in Syria...
