Iran denies using the Parchin military center (the site of the incident) for nuclear research, though officials admit the location is a testing facility for components of nuclear detonators. The May 25 explosion wasn’t the first to happen at the site; one also occurred there in 2014. Then again, in 2020, another blast rocked Parchin, one which Iranian leaders attempted to deny ever happened. However, satellite imagery proves that the second incident did, in fact, occur.
The most recent explosion took place not long after several assassinations and attempts on key Iranian defense officials. The deaths and attacks have led to speculation that another country, such as Israel, could be attempting to keep the rogue nation from obtaining nuclear capabilities.
