The Islamic Republic faced its third incident this week when another fire broke out at a location in the Bushehr Province; While multiple people were injured in the first explosion that occurred earlier in the week, one casualty is reported in the aftermath of Wednesday’s fire.
For the third time this week, the Islamic Republic of Iran suffered another major incident at a petrochemical plant in the Bushehr Province city of Asaluyeh, located in the country’s southern region. According to a report by The Jerusalem Post, the explosion and fire that followed could be traced back to an oxygen transmission line between the Mobin Petrochemical Plant and Damavand Energy Company.
While multiple people were injured in the first event that occurred this week at a drone factory in Isfahan, Wednesday’s explosion killed one person in addition to two being injured. According to the report, much like the other incidents, the source of the explosion remains unknown.
According to the mayor of Asaluyeh, Abdolnabi Yousefi, “Currently, a technical emergency working group has been formed to investigate the cause of the incident, and after clarifying the dimensions of it, information will be provided.”
This week’s string of events has striking similarities to the incidents that took place back in the summer of 2020, when numerous Iranian facilities were hit with mysterious, unprecedented explosions.
