A fire and an explosion early Thursday morning that struck a building above Iran’s underground Natanz uranium enrichment facility was caused by an Israeli cyber attack, according to the Kuwaiti al-Jarida newspaper.
U.S.-based analysts have identified the site as a new centrifuge production plant.
The al-Jarida report, published Friday, quotes a “senior security source” as saying the explosion was the result of an airstrike conducted by the IDF’s F-35 stealth jet.
The blast, the Kuwaiti paper said, made a “crack” in the reactor building.
Early Thursday, the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (IAEO) sought to downplay the fire at the top-secret nuclear facility, where it is widely believed the Islamic Republic is enriching uranium for use in nuclear weapons, calling it an “incident.”
The explosion occurred less than a week after a massive explosion rocked the Parchin military site in Iran’s capital city Tehran.
