I am sure it was a geophysical event, nothing related to military matters. After all, how many $$ Millions did Iran receive from the US to promise peace??

That was my first reaction as well, but it could have been their own mishap. We'll likely never really know for sure.

Followers of Islam are notoriously poor at heeding preventive safety measures. They are fatalists who believe that Allah controls everything in their lives and that they can't change anything. It makes it interesting to fly with a Moslem pilot . . . .

I also read somewhere today where the Dutch had reported some radioactive particles in the atmosphere but were pretty sure it was from a civilian source.
It's possible it was an incomplete or, partial nuclear detonation.
Nuclear explosions require A LOT of things to happen all at the same time.

That is a crying shame. I hope no one was hurt.

Geez, watched this for 15 minutes waiting to see one go off and not joy. Good news is the Iranian Inspector seems to have set off a really big one.
I've stopped counting.

Mystery Deepens: Third Iran Fire In A Week Damages Centrifuge Facility
A week after Iranian officials tried to explain away a massive explosion at Parchin as a civilian-area accident, a large fire at Natanz might prove more difficult to dismiss. Natanz, like Parchin, is a site where the US alleges that Iran has performed work on their nuclear-weapons program, and experts believe that uranium-enriching centrifuge work might have been the target this time:
Iran says there has been an “incident” at one of its nuclear facilities.
Atomic Energy Organisation of Iran (AEOI) spokesman Behrouz Kamalvandi did not give details of what happened at the Natanz uranium enrichment plant.
But he said the incident took place in a building that was under construction, and that there were no casualties or concerns about contamination.
The governor of Natanz city was later quoted by Tasnim news agency as describing the incident as a fire.
U.S.-based analysts have told The Associated Press that they believe a fire at an Iran nuclear site struck a new centrifuge production facility. …
Two analysts say they believe the fire struck the production, based on a photo released by Iran, the site of the fire and satellite images.
They are Fabian Hinz, a researcher at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies in Monterey, California, and David Albright of the Institute for Science and International Security. Both study Iran.
Three mysterious incidents, linked by explosions – at least two of them at secretive nuclear and weapons facilities – have rocked Iran in the past week. All three have been reported by Iranian media with various excuses about how they are less serious than they appear, that they are being investigated and that there is no major story to tell.
On June 25, a massive explosion, seen many miles away in Tehran, burned a hillside near a missile complex at Khojir. On June 30, a medical center suffered a fire in Tehran, killing at least 18 people. And on July 2, an incident at Iran’s Natanz enrichment facility was mentioned by the country’s official media, without elaboration. Officials claimed that only a shed was damaged. In each case, officials appeared to try to get ahead of the story by obfuscating about the seriousness of the incident or why it took place at a sensitive facility.
This leads to key questions about why so many explosions or incidents have affected key aspects of Iran’s military-industrial complex. Rumors posted on social media and elsewhere online have suggested not only a cover up but also allegations of a “cyber” attack or other concerns about how these incidents unfolded. Iran alleged a cyber attack harmed Shahid Rajaee port in May, in the wake of an Iranian cyber attack on Israel.
Well, I'm sure you'll all join with me in wishing them great lack of success in their endeavours.
