Iran says Natanz was hit by ‘small explosion,’ claims damage quickly repairable

The Atomic Energy Organization of Iran said Monday that the country’s Natanz uranium enrichment plant was hit by a “small explosion” the previous day, after the government labeled it an Israeli act of “sabotage.”

“The incident occurred at the electricity distribution center. There was a small explosion,” spokesman Behrouz Kamalvandi told the Tasnim news agency, adding that the “damaged sectors can be quickly repaired.”

Iran initially reported a power blackout had hit the Natanz enrichment site Sunday, a day after it announced it had started up advanced uranium enrichment centrifuges banned under the 2015 deal limiting its nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.
