Black Tom?


A massive explosion rocked a military weapons depot near the Iranian capital of Tehran Saturday, killing 15 people and injuring others, Iranian state television reported.

According to Iran’s semi-official Fars news agency, the explosion happened around noon in one of the arsenals belonging to the Revolutionary Guard, Iran’s military force, Reuters reported.

“Fifteen people were martyred and scores of others injured. Some of those injured are in critical condition,” a spokesman for the Revolutionary Guard said.

CBS reported there were actually two consecutive blasts, which were strong enough to break nearby building windows.

Witnesses told Reuters the explosion was so strong it was felt as far as 45 km away. Many assumed there had been a minor earthquake.

The explosion comes amid rising tensions between Israel and the United States. Days ago, Israel’s defense minister warned they would not “take any option off the table” with regard to a possible strike against Iran’s nuclear weapons program. A report last week said Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is trying to rally support among his cabinet for an attack on Iran.

What do they mean by "Fifteen people were martyred"

Can someone be martyred through an accident or are they saying that it was an attack and they died through an act at war.?

Local MP Hossein Garousi said "a large part of an ammunition depot exploded," parliament's website reported.

While the explosion occurred during a time of heightened tension with Israel, the US and other western powers, Iranian politician Parviz Soroori ruled out sabotage. "No sabotage was involved in this incident. It has nothing to do with politics," Mr Soroori was quoted as saying by the parliament's website, icana.ir.


just had to post this so no one thinks we're starting the party with Iran early. It's their move right now. :roll:

Iran Blast May Have Hit Missile Base

According to several sources, including this from the AP, the explosion in Iran may have been a bigger deal than first reported:

An Iranian exile group claimed Saturday that a blast near Tehran hit a missile base run by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps, disputing the Iranian government’s account that it occurred at an ammunition depot.

Former Mujahedin-e Khalq spokesman Alireza Jafarzadeh, citing what he called reliable sources inside Iran, said that the explosion hit the Modarres Garrison of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps west of Tehran. The group, also known as the MEK, has in the past disclosed the sites of several key Iranian nuclear installations as well as details of their operations.

Jafarzadeh, now an author and commentator critical of Tehran’s clerical regime, said the Modarres Garrison belongs to the IGRC’s missile unit and the blasts “resulted from the explosion of IRGC missiles

The often over-heated Debka has more:

No ordinary blast at Shahryar IRGC base
Brig. Hassan Moghadam, head of Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) missile development and sections of its nuclear program, was killed in one of the two consecutive explosions that hit two IRGC bases 46 kilometers west of Tehran Saturday, Nov. 12. The official fatality figure is 32. Fourteen hours after explosions blasts could still be heard and fires raged. DEBKAfile’s exclusive sources report the bases are located in Malard, a town in the Shahryar district. The Moadarres facility was the first to be hit, while the second and bigger blast occurred at Amir-al-Mo’menin.

Their force was such that the Iranian Red Crescent rushed 45 ambulances to the two facilities plus 23 buses converted to first-aid vehicles and a helicopter to evacuate the critically injured.However, only six rescue workers were given access to the Moadarres base and none were permitted to enter to enter Amir-al-Mo’menin because of the facility’s sensitivity.

Debka adds that foreign scientists and engineers may have been among the injured, something Iran wishes to keep silent. Who knows?

Iran says has detected Duqu computer virus

Image

TEHRAN — Iran said on Sunday it had detected the Duqu computer virus that experts say is based on Stuxnet, the so-called "cyber-weapon" discovered last year and believed to be aimed at sabotaging the Islamic Republic's nuclear sites.

The head of Iran's civil defense organization told the official IRNA news agency that computers at all main sites at risk were being checked and that Iran had developed software to combat the virus.

"We are in the initial phase of fighting the Duqu virus," Gholamreza Jalali, was quoted as saying. "The final report which says which organizations the virus has spread to and what its impacts are has not been completed yet.

"All the organizations and centers that could be susceptible to being contaminated are being controlled," he said.

News of Duqu surfaced in October when security software maker Symantec Corp said it had found a mysterious virus that contained code similar to Stuxnet.

While Stuxnet was aimed at crippling industrial control systems and may have destroyed some of the centrifuges Iran uses to enrich uranium, experts say Duqu appeared designed to gather data to make it easier to launch future cyber attacks.

Symantec said: "Duqu is essentially the precursor to a future Stuxnet-like attack." Instead of being designed to sabotage an industrial control system, the new virus is designed to gain remote access capabilities, it said in a report issued last month.

Iran said in April it had been targeted by a second computer virus which it identified as "Stars." It was not immediately clear if Stars and Duqu were related but Jalali described Duqu as the third virus to hit Iran.

Tehran said Stuxnet had not inflicted serious damage before it was detected and blamed the United States and Israel for the virus which appeared to be aimed at crippling the nuclear program they say is aimed at making atomic weapons, a charge Iran denies.

The International Atomic Energy Agency issued a report last week that contained what it called credible evidence pointing to military dimensions to Iran's atomic activities, fueling demands in Washington and Europe for further sanctions.

Iran dismissed the report as politicized and full of "lousy" and unreliable intelligence work. The speaker of Iran's parliament said on Sunday the assembly would "review" relations with the U.N. nuclear watchdog.

Report: Iran Revolutionary Guard Commander Killed in Explosion was Testing Intercontinental Missile

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — A senior Iranian Revolutionary Guard commander killed in an explosion at an ammunition depot west of Tehran last week died while testing an intercontinental missile, his brother was quoted by a government newspaper as saying Saturday.

Mohammad Tehrani Moghaddam, himself a Guard officer, also said in an interview published Saturday that his brother Gen. Hasan Tehrani Moghaddam had founded the missile unit of the Lebanese Hezbollah group.

Gen. Moghaddam was killed together with 20 other Guard members Nov. 12 at a military site outside Bidganeh village, 25 miles southwest of Tehran. The Guard said the explosion was an accident and occurred while military personnel were transporting munitions.

But Mohammad Tehrani Moghaddam was quoted by the government-run Iran newspaper as saying that his brother was killed when the weapon exploded during testing. He did not dispute that the explosion was accidental.

“He lost his life while doing a final test of the missile,” Moghaddam said. “The project was in the final testing phase. It was related to an intercontinental ballistic missile … It was a completely high-tech, confidential process.”

These key quotes were left out of the text printed by the newspaper. They appeared on the paper’s website early Saturday, but were deleted later in the day.

The Guard has praised Moghaddam as the founder of the elite unit’s surface-to-surface missile capability.

In a statement released after the explosion, the Guard said it would not forget
Moghaddam’s “effective role in the development of the country’s defense…and his efforts in launching and organizing the Guard’s artillery and missile units.”

Moghaddam headed a “self-sufficiency” unit of the Guard’s armaments section, it said.

In the interview, Mohammed Tehrani Moghaddam said that this brother had set up Hezbollah’s missile capability. “Hasan…visited Lebanon and created Hezbollah’s missile unit there,” he was quoted as saying.

Iran is a key supporter of Hezbollah and is believed to funnel it weapons and millions of dollars in funding, though Tehran denies arming the Shiite group. Hezbollah, also closely allied to Syria, boasts a heavy arsenal of rockets capable of reaching deep inside Israel.

The Revolutionary Guard, Iran’s most powerful military force, is in charge of Iran’s missile program.

Iran’s arsenal boasts missiles with a range of about 1,250 miles that were designed for Israeli and U.S. targets. The missile capability, along with Iran’s nuclear program, are among the reasons why Israel considers Iran its most dangerous enemy.

Moghaddam said his brother was also involved in Iran’s space program, assisting the rocket that took an Iranian satellite into orbit.

He didn‘t elaborate but said Hasan was favored by Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Moghaddam himself was once Khamenei’s bodyguard.

The Guard initially said 17 Guard members were killed in the explosion. The semi-official Mehr news agency listed the names of 21 victims prompting the military force to say some of those critically injured had succumbed to their wounds later.
