A large explosion rocked the central Iranian city of Isfahan Monday afternoon, Channel 2 news reported according to Iranian semi-official FARS news.

The report did not reveal the cause of the explosion, which was large enough to be heard throughout the city.

Isfahan is home to nuclear experimental reactors, and also a uranium enrichment facility for producing nuclear fuel.

The explosion occurred two weeks after a massive explosion west of Tehran which killed 17 troops, including an IRGC officer responsible for the development of some of Iran's most advanced weapons.
