One of the country’s oldest cities and host to a uranium enrichment facility, Isfahan, Iran, was rocked by an explosion yesterday and reports have indicated that the explosion occurred at military facilities in the city. Speculation has arisen that the attack was carried out as part of international actions against Iran’s nuclear program. Mehr News Agency reports the location of the blast was a fuel storage facility. The Mossad Israeli intelligence agency is thought to be involved given the ratcheting up of rhetoric between the two nations over the past few weeks. These actions may be in an effort to avoid outright military conflict or prelude a more widespread conflagaration in the region.
