Major Explosion Rocks Iranian City Critical To Producing Enriched Uranium; Iranian State News First Reports Explosion, Then Deletes It From Its Website

Jewish Lightning Strikes Twice?

Less than two weeks after a mysterious explosion destroyed an Iranian missile base near Tehran, the Islamic Republic's official news agency FARS reported Tuesday that a loud blast was heard in the city of Isfahan at 2:40 pm local time, but later removed the report. According to the initial report, search and rescue teams called to the scene confirmed the blast, but reported no injuries. Iran's uranium enrichment plant is located just outside Isfahan one of Iran's largest cities. The report also stated that a security official confirmed that the explosion had occurred, but refused to give further details. ...

In a curious turn of events, shortly after the initial report was published, the item was removed from the news agency's website, which is affiliated with the country's Revolutionary Guard.

Hours later, deputy governor of Isfahan province told Iran's Mehr news agency that there was no report of a major explosion in the province.

Supposedly the explosion was large enough to be heard through the whole city.

And yet now, it didn't happen at all.

This blog caught a screencap of the FARS report, before it was disappeared, including a picture of thick black smoke plume. Ignore the picture; a commenter at Elder of Ziyon says that's just a stock photo they run with explosion stories.

Completely Unvetted... And this is just some guy yammering on YouTube, but he's claiming his sources in Iran say that three explosions have hit Iran, at three different missile Shahab-3 and Shahab-4 missile bases. (Those are what they would hit Israel with.)
