A fatal explosion has hit an Iranian military base near capital Tehran, according to local media reports. There has not been any immediate confirmation of casualties in the blast, which apparently happened in an arms depot belonging to the elite Revolutionary Guards in Bidganeh.
The AFP news agency reports that the force of the blast shattered the windows of homes in the western suburbs of Tehran.
Alireza Jane, an Iranian official responsible for security issues in Tehran's governor's office, told the ISNA student news agency that the blast hit "a military base."
She said the explosion, which was originally reported to have hit a gas distribution station, happened about 12 miles west of Tehran.
A statement on the Revolutionary Guards website said the arms depot belonged tot hem but did not give further details.
There are no details on what may have caused the explosion.

Gee. That sure is too bad that a terrible accident like that would happen to those guys.
According to links in posts #27 & 41, the radiation has been detected for 3 wks
No. I'm going through my radiation tracker, the Eastern Europe sensors are offline- but I'm getting Azerbaijan, and their radiation levels aren't above normal. If it was coming from Iran by wind it would have to pass over Azerbaijan.
By the way, Tokyo is currently experiencing a massive spike in radiation today!!! Their readings are higher than Fukushima right now!
Mossad denies ever having heard of a country called Iran.
Reichstag Fire style event?
Darwin at work
If this was an Israeli op, not a bad target to go after. Apparently the base that got hit stationed IRGC troops responsible for operating Iran’s IRBMs. Wonder if there were any Shahab missiles at that ammo dump that went boom?
Explosion occurs in the village of Bidganeh where the Fifth Raad Missile Brigade, responsible for launching Shahab 3 and 4 missiles, is stationed; satellite images of the site reveal two large military bases near the village.
A calling card from Bibi. “We know where you live and can reach you any time.”
“By the way, Tokyo is currently experiencing a massive spike in radiation today!!! Their readings are higher than Fukushima right now!”
Do you have a link for that? Thanks.
I have reservations this was an accident” but no doubt will be reported as such. Seems to me might be “communication” when voices go unheeded.
I have it through something called RadTracker.
I found a link for you! Tokyo is at 133 ru/hr right now and Fukushima’s at 91 ru/hr. It was even higher than that earlier at both locations.
Here’s the link:
Drag the map over Japan and zoom in to see the readings from exact locations throughout Japan. Let me know if you have any questions.
Revolutionaries? Very possible.
Mossad?...depending on the target, also possible.
If we had the right President in the White House, the mullahs would have fallen alreaddy during the uprsising over a year oago.
Not a good idea to store Iranian ammo, as they found out in Cyprus: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-14102253
Maybe more software like “suxtant” will forge a complete meltdown the first time they power up. Something must be done. The mullahs are crazy nuts and the shi’ religion is even more evil than the crazy mullahs and the countries helping these people need to understand when the muzzie hordes are at THEIR gates well, there will be bolld there also because these people want the world for allah not just a piece of it.
...apparently happened in an arms depot belonging to the elite Revolutionary Guards in Bidganeh.IOW, it was RG, not Iranian per se.
According to Iranian TV, one of the deaths was Hassan Tehrani Moqaddam.
A 2002 NCRI briefing names him as Revolutionary Guard Missile Force Commander.
Yeah, just an accidental explosion at a boring old weapons depot.....
Just noticed this after I posted the above reply.
