Speaking with Army Radio, Meridor said that, "Not every explosion over there should be tied to reconnaissance and stories from the movies."
Despite Meridor's belief that it "isn't right to expand on this topic," the minister admitted that in dealing with the Iranian threat, "there are countries who impose economic sanctions and there are countries who act in other ways."
The source and target of Monday's explosion were unclear. Some reports
claimed that it took place in a military base and others claimed it was a
gas explosion. Isfahan hosts a nuclear facility involved in processing
uranium which is fed to the Natanz fuel enrichment facility.
Two weeks ago, on November 12, an explosion hit an Iranian military base
near the town of Bid Kaneh, killing 17 members of the Iranian
Revolutionary Guard Corps and Maj.-Gen. Hassan Moghaddam, chief
architect of the Islamic Republic’s ballistic missile program. Israel’s
Mossad has been accused of orchestrating the blast.
