A massive fire broke out in Iran’s southwestern city of Bushehr near the Islamic Republic’s only functioning nuclear power plant late on Friday night, the semi-official Fars News Agency reported on Saturday.
It is a major oil export port.
Again, Iran skimping on maintenance is biting them in the rear. One would think after all the sites which have exploded over the last couple years they actually would be increasing maintenance.
Dozens of people in Bushehr were quick to upload footage of the fire to social media as bystanders moved away from the flames.
The cause of the fire is still unknown, according to Iranian media reports.
Iranian Video Threatens Attack on Dimona Nuclear Facility
The disturbing video was released on Friday when Tehran “celebrated” its own version of Quds Day (“Jerusalem Day,”) which it instated in 1979 to express support for the Palestinians and oppose Zionism and the Jewish state.
Quds Day, as the event is known in Iran, is the peak of anti-Israeli propaganda in the country. Iranian militia made sure inciting posters were put up in Palestinian villages. Also, its proxy militia in Iraq laid out American and Israeli flags and trampled and drove over them with their vehicles.
