Details of the latest attack in Iran.. A march on an important factory that supports Natanz


Yesterday, Wednesday, the Iranian Atomic Energy Agency announced that it had thwarted an attack on one of its facilities, stressing that no damages or injuries were recorded at the site, but it did not specify the nature or name of this site, nor did it provide any other important details.
However, a new one appeared on Thursday, after a source familiar with the incident, as well as a senior intelligence official, revealed additional details.
A major manufacturing center for centrifuges
The two sources indicated, according to what the New York Times reported, today, Thursday, that the targeted building near the city of Karaj, on the outskirts of the capital, Tehran, was one of the country’s main manufacturing centers, for the production of centrifuges used in two nuclear facilities in the country, namely Fordow and Natanz.
The information also revealed that the attack was carried out by a small, quadruple helicopter, which took off from inside the country, and affected one of the main manufacturing centers in the city of Karaj, which was tasked with producing alternative centrifuges for hundreds and perhaps more instead of those that were disrupted in a previous attack that targeted the Natanz facility last April. .
Faster enrichment of uranium
In addition, this plant also produces more advanced and modern centrifuges, enabling the relevant authorities to enrich more uranium in a shorter time than usual.
While no one has claimed or claimed responsibility for the attack, the intelligence official revealed that the plant, known as the Centrifugal Technology Company of Iran, or TESA, was on the list of targets that Israel presented to the Trump administration early last year. .
He also added that among the goals that were presented to the previous US administration at the beginning of the year 2020, were striking the uranium enrichment site in Natanz (which was targeted in April 2020) and the assassination of nuclear scientist Fakhrizadeh (who was later assassinated last November 2020).

Reminds of an attack on a Hezbollah site
Perhaps what is remarkable about yesterday’s attack is that it is similar to the one that hit a Hezbollah precision missile production building in Beirut in August of 2019, which was destroyed, according to what Israeli officials confirmed at the time.
Then, small armed drones took off from the coastal area of ​​the Lebanese capital, and struck the site, before those responsible for the attack, whom Hezbollah indicated were Israelis, withdrew to a submarine that had come to pick them up.
It is noteworthy that shortly after the aforementioned attack yesterday on the facility near Karaj, the Iranian Aviation Agency announced a new law that requires the registration of all civilian drones, regardless of their size and purpose, on an official government website within 6 months, with licenses to be issued later. registered.
