#1 what is certain is the reactor was shut down sometime in October but no announcement about it until mid nov, then corrected info

because of the location of the plant, mostly Sunni Iranians would die in the case of a major accident

#2 garth, would an Israeli bomb be considered a major accident?

#4 If the operators screw up badly enough, you can have an "explosion" from steam pressure or combustion. The scale of the "explosion" could be from comparable to a fire cracker to a boiler explosion.
