Images released today show that an Iranian Missile site suffered serve damage during a missile engine exploded.
A Washington-based research group has released a satellite image showing an “extensively damaged” Iranian missile base two weeks after an explosion at the site was reported.
Paul Brannan, a senior research analyst for the Institute for Science and International Security, which specializes in nuclear weapons programs, said some of the buildings at the compound near the city of Bid Kaneh appear to be destroyed following the Nov. 12 explosion, which Iranian authorities have characterized as an accident.
Brig. Gen. Itay Brun, head of Israel’s Military Intelligence Research Directorate, told the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee on Monday that the latest blast could delay Tehran’s development of long-range missiles.
“The explosion at the site to develop surface-to-surface missiles could stop or delay activities on that track and in that location, but we must emphasize that Iran has other development tracks in addition to that facility,” Brun said, according to the Jerusalem Post.
While a lot of the details of this accident are still unclear, one thing is, Iran’s Missile program is going to move forward. This is only a setback and not an elimination.
