#7 is someone keeping score

by my count

25 June - Parchin explosion near Tehran at a suspected missile development site

2 July - Natanz explosion near Tehran at a nuclear re-processing site

4 July - Ahvaz power plant explosion in SW Iran

7 July - Baqershahr explosion at IRNG-owned factory near Tehran

9 July - Tehran explosion at IRNG-owned factory

12 July - Mahshahr petrochemical plant explosion (also IRNG - owned)

13 July - Mahshad industrial complex explosion in NE Iran (I think the tweet is about this one)

14 July - multiple explosions at port of Bushehr (SW Iran) details not confirmed







the most spectacular was the early am (local time) July 2 hit on the Natanz site which not only did enormous damage but was apparently a coordinated cyberwar (to take out surveillance) plus human sabotage (to place the bombs) op

#12 Re #7: The dates show an obvious ramp up. Lets see if we can get to multiple instances of bad luck on a single day.

#13 The current headline of lord garth’s Daily Mail article:

Massive blaze rips through Iranian port near nuclear power station as seven ships burn - after a series of mysterious explosions around the country.

The article also has a useful map showing nine recent incidents around the country.
