Tehran: A sabotage attempt against a building belonging to the Iranian Atomic Energy Organization has been foiled, Iranian media reported.
An Iranian news site close to security services said authorities thwarted a “sabotage attack” on the country’s civilian nuclear programme on Wednesday, without providing further information.
Social media channels linked to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) said a drone tried to attack the building. Another report said no “loss of life or property damage” was inflicted.
Nournews, a website believed to be close to Iran’s Supreme National Security Council, reported the attack was halted “before causing any damage to the building”.
“Investigations are ongoing to identify the perpetrators and determine the facts surrounding the incident,” said Nournews.
When asked for comment, an Iranian official referred to the Nournews report. The official spoke on condition of anonymity as they did not have authorisation to discuss the matter with the media.
