Report: In Devastating Blow, Israel Sets Back Iran's Nuke Program Two Years
The last couple of weeks have seen a string of apparent sabotage incidents in Iran. Questions about them abound. Possible answers are intriguing to say the least.
Probably the most significant attack came early Thursday morning at Natanz, when, as the New York Times reported:
A Middle Eastern intelligence official said the blast was caused by an explosive device planted inside the facility. The explosion, he said, destroyed much of the aboveground parts of the facility where new centrifuges are balanced before they are put into operation .
Instead, Iran appears to be facing a more dismal prospect. On Monday, Israels Channel 12 News said the attack on the Natanz nuclear facility in Iran, credited to Israel, had managed to set back Tehrans uranium enrichment program by two years, citing Western intelligence estimates.
Channel 12 also said Israels Mossad had recently foiled planned or attempted Iranian attacks on Israeli diplomatic missions in Europe and elsewhere, and that frustration is growing fast in Iran.
And what of the other incidents? The biggest of them, which came on June 26, was a huge blast at Irans secret Parchin nuclear complex. Breaking Defense reported that the explosion destroyed big parts of the facility

This reads like a Vince Flynn Book.
Heres a better look at the complete damage:
So Iran has another problem. Is Iran finally admitting they are making nuclear weapons? I thought they denied enriching uranium for decades now.
Or a Daniel Silva book
Hopefully so! And maybe the good Iranian people will in that time figure out how to take their country back from the Mad Muslim dictators and put it on a peaceful footing again.
Unconfirmed report that the building was not being just used for centrifuge assembly but was primarily for storage of UF6.
They have been refining uranium ore, yellowcake for several years into UF6 to be further separated into U235 weapons grade.
The blast destroyed about 80% of their stockpile of UF6. The blast would have contaminated the entire area with highly toxic and corrosive UF6. Any centrifuges in the building would now be useless.
John Kerry deeply saddened...
Democrats are outraged!
Our county library had two shelves full of his novels, enjoyed them all, starting with a copy of The Avaitors I found in the used books at the SA store.
Achmed, stop downloading porn!!!!
Aviators. Stupid brain!
how the heck do they do these things?
I read that The Great One had sanctioned explosive devices being put on USSR oil pipelines throughout those years and it made life difficult for folks there.
I guess there are enough people that can be bought
Unfortunately it goes both ways.
Now we understand why the Democrat Party hates Israel so much. The Democrat Party are the best friend of Iran and will do whatever is needed to support their efforts to destroy the present American Government. They would be more than happy to become a loyal vassal government to the Iranians once they achieve a complete overthrow of the present American government.
I think there are an abundance of good Iranian people who would like nothing more than to take their country back from the Mullahs. If Trump is re-elected and keeps the pressure on, and Israel does their Mossad thing, the time for Irans liberation will come.
UF6 (uranium hexafloride) is VERY toxic
...A Middle Eastern intelligence official said the blast [at Natanz] was caused by an explosive device planted inside the facility. The explosion, he said, destroyed much of the aboveground parts of the facility where new centrifuges are balanced before they are put into operation...
We turned Qasem Soleimani into kebab bits, and reimpose sanctions, and move our embassy, and meanwhile Israeli intelligence sneaks in and steals files, and sneaks in *again* and plants an explosive...
I’d guess they intercepted a material shipment bound for the faculty and replaced it with an explosive device.
