Reuters reported that, in a speech to the annual gathering of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Iranian Atomic Energy Organization chief Fereydoun Abbasi-Davani claimed the power lines to Iran’s controversial underground nuclear facility, Fordow, were attacked with explosives on August 17. He added that a similar attack took place at the Natanz enrichment facility but did not specify a date. Abassi-Davani speculated the IAEA may have been behind the attack, citing as evidence a coincidental request from the group to visit the facility the morning after the attack.
