An Israeli intelligence source has confirmed Iran’s Fordow underground nuclear uranium enrichment facility sustained major damage in a “mega explosion” that occurred last week.

Fordow, which contains at least 2,700 centrifuges for uranium enrichment, is located deep beneath a mountain near the Iranian city of Qom.

Some 200 workers were trapped inside the facility at the time, according to a report published Monday by The Times, a UK-based newspaper.

It must be really bad for the Iranians to deny it happened. They acknowledged the Stuxnet virus. Great news.

It will be interesting to see what happens next.
Was the site contaminated? Are researchers slowly
dieing. What exploded? Bomb trigger? Just HE?

Interesting times.

The only way to destroy a hardened facility deep underground is from within and the Israeli’s have some ballsy operatives who can get high explosives into a secure facility.

You wonder if they didn’t have Saudi help in getting this done. Next to Israel the Saudi royal family has the most to lose if Iran goes nuclear.

I had the same feeling of Deja vu when I read this. The plot line in some book I read had a bomb detonating deep inside, collapsing floors above onto floors below and contaminating the site for centuries in the process of destroying it.

Can’t remember the book, but I do recall the idea.
