A fatal explosion has hit an Iranian military base near capital Tehran, according to local media reports. There has not been any immediate confirmation of casualties in the blast, which apparently happened in an arms depot belonging to the elite Revolutionary Guards in Bidganeh.
The AFP news agency reports that the force of the blast shattered the windows of homes in the western suburbs of Tehran.
Alireza Jane, an Iranian official responsible for security issues in Tehran's governor's office, told the ISNA student news agency that the blast hit "a military base."
She said the explosion, which was originally reported to have hit a gas distribution station, happened about 12 miles west of Tehran.
A statement on the Revolutionary Guards website said the arms depot belonged tot hem but did not give further details.
There are no details on what may have caused the explosion.

Fools playing with fire!
Maybe the explosion made him a woman.....so to speak.
I find it interesting they keep using the word hit.
We’re probably thinking the same thing.
I think it mmore likely they will suffer a series of terrible nuclear tragedies, self inflicted, before they finally figure out they shouldn’t have ever taken on the responsibility of nukes.
Messing with the smartest people in the neighborhood isn’t a good idea.
Looks like two seperate explosions, the smoke on the left looks to be from a smaller explosion that probably happened first since it seems to be fading.
Something very similar happened in Oct 2010 at another base. Iranians said accident but there was speculation later it was a sabotage and the site was a lot more important than just a ammo dump.
This is probably something similar.
-——There has not been any immediate confirmation of casualties in the blast,-——
Therefore, it was not a fatal blast as the headline screams
The blast to which you refer was missiles and reports indicated it was fatal, numerous deaths.
Iranian TV say 15 dead according to Reuters.
Silence! I kill you
Israel would never do anything like this...ya think.
I’m hoping it was an IED storage building or factory on the base that blew up in their faces.
“There are no details on what may have caused the explosion.”
he he he
Any connection to this from yesterday?

US arrests Iranian for terrorism: accused of plotting assassination of Saudi envoy.
Immediately after the charges were announced, the US Treasury Department announced it was applying sanctions to five people implicated in the plot: Arbabsiar; Shakuri; Pasdar commander Qassem Soleimani; Hamed Abdollahi, a senior Pasdar officer who coordinated aspects of the plot and oversaw the other Qods Force officials directly responsible for coordinating and planning this operation; and Abdul-Reza Shahlai, a Pasdar officer who help coordinate the plot. Shakuri was described as a deputy to Shahlai.
Will need to look at weather conditions.
