London-based Daily Telegraph reports of mysterious blast in military convoy leaving Revolutionary Guards Base last weekend. At least 15 people killed in explosion, but Iranian authorities seeking to silence incident
Was sabotage responsible for disrupting a shipment of arms from Iran to Hizbullah? The London-based Daily Telegraph newspaper reported Friday of a mysterious explosion which devastated an Iranian supply convoy intended to reach Hizbullah.
According to the report, the strong blast took place in one of Tehran's suburbs as a military convoy left a Revolutionary Guards' ammunition storehouse. At least 15 people were killed in the explosion.
Western sources reported that the blast took place on July 19 and that the convoy was carrying military equipment for the Lebanese terror organization.
It was also reported that senior Revolutionary Guards officials banned the Iranian media from reporting the explosion, even though it was heard throughout the capital. The Guards launched an investigation into the incident.
An official source told the newspaper that the strong explosion was heard across Tehran, adding that the Revolutionary Guards were trying to silence the incident despite the fact that many people were killed.
Additional explosions and mysterious incidents which have taken place in Iran recently are being investigated by the Revolutionary Guards. In one of the incidents, a blast rocked a mosque in the city of Shiraz, where weapons were being displayed, killing 11 people.
Iranian Intelligence Minister Gholam-Hossein Mohseni Ejei said following the incident that the main suspect in the affair was arrested.
"The terrorist group had ties with the US and Britain. These countries were informed of the arrest by the Foreign Ministry," he said, "but the countries did nothing to prevent these terror groups' activity."
Sabotage or work accident? Maybe a crazed bulldozer driver rammed one of the vehicles.
I'm surprised the mullah-shill failed to blame Israel for this little mishap. He probably doesn't want to alarm the faithful by suggesting that little Israel might actually be able to get saboteurs into the heart of mullahstan.
Work accident.......I hate when that happens.
Oh and a weapons display at a mosque how quaint.
They really should think about starting an OSHA-like department over there.
“Dammit, Abdul, the cargo-light’s burned out. I can’t see what’s in the back of our truck.”
“No problem, Hosni, here’s my lighter. American made, very go...”
It’s really too bad it didn’t happen with imanutjob two feet away.
Yep...something like that.
Probably the center fuel tank.
“Probably the center fuel tank.”
Now, that’s funny!
“The Unit” filming for next season.
NBC reports that it was sabotaged by the McCain campaign.
