Attempted attack on the Iranian Atomic Energy Organization – report


On Wednesday morning, a sabotage operation against one of the buildings of the Iranian Atomic Energy Organization failed and caused no damage or casualties, Iranian media reported on Wednesday.

The incident is under investigation by Iranian authorities.

The news comes as negotiations continue in Vienna between Iran and world powers to renew the Iran nuclear deal.

The incident also comes just days after the emergency shutdown of Iran’s Bushehr nuclear power plant.

The Iranian Atomic Energy Organization reported that a technical fault in the power plant resulted in the plant being temporarily shut down and disconnected from the national power grid, according to Iranian news agency Fars. The AEO said the plant will be reconnected to the power grid in a few days.

As of Tuesday, repairs to the Bushehr power plant were still underway.

In April, an alleged Israeli attack was reported at the Natanz nuclear complex, destroying thousands of centrifuges. Former AEO chief Fereydoon Abbasi-Davani announced after the attack that it was the fifth such attack on the Natanz nuclear site in 15 years.

This is a developing story.
