‘Nuclear Terrorism’: Iran accuses Israel of attacking its nuclear site
Iran has accused Israel of an attack on its Natanz uranium enrichment plant and vowed it would take “revenge” and elevate its nuclear activities.
According to details, On Sunday, the power supply at the Shahid Ahmadi Roshan facility near Natanz was suspended under strange circumstances that damaged the machines used to enrich uranium at the facility.
In an exclusive interview with the state TV, the Head of Iran Atomic Energy Agency, Ali Akbar Salehi, referred to Israel as the main opponent of the diplomatic solution to conflicts over Iran’s nuclear program is behind the power blackout.
The atomic energy head added that Iran holds every right to take action against the attackers on the country’s main uranium enrichment facility.
Although the Israeli government did not claim responsibility for nuclear terrorism, Israeli media had immediately reported after the attack that Israel had organized it.
Iran and the US are working to restore the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) or the 2015 Iran Nuclear Deal.
Following the killing of Qassem Soleimani in January 2020, Iran announced to pull out of the JCPOA. Under the nuclear deal, Iran agreed to give access to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to its nuclear facilities to relieve from crippling economic sanctions.
The Former US President, Donald Trump, had pulled out of the JCPOA in May of 2018, calling it flawed. United Kingdom, Russia, Germany, France, and China were other signatories of the JCPOA.
The incumbent US President, Joe Biden, wants to renew the deal. Following this, stakeholders from Iran, the US, and other signatories of the JCPOA held preliminary discussions in Vienna last week.
However, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, a strong opponent of JCPOA, has reiterated that Israel would do everything to guarantee the 2015 Iran Nuclear Deal does not restore.
