The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said in a report that some of its surveillance equipment in Iran was damaged in an apparent Israeli attack on an Iranian nuclear facility.
The attack on a building in the Iranian city of Karaj took place in June and was reportedly carried out with a drone. Iran initially downplayed the incident but later blamed it on Israel and said some damage had been done.
The IAEA said the attack destroyed one of its cameras and badly damaged another, impeding the agency’s ability to monitor the facility.
Like most covert Israeli attacks, Israel has not officially taken credit for this incident. But one day after the attack, Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett hinted that Israel carried it out. “Our enemies know — not from statements, but from actions — that we are much more determined and much more clever, and that we do not hesitate to act when it is needed,” he said.
The building in Karaj is used to produce centrifuges and was reportedly on a list of targets Israel presented to the Trump administration in early 2020. Sources told The New York Times that other targets included Mohsen Fakrizadeh, the Iranian scientist who was killed in November 2020, and Iran’s Natanz nuclear facility, which has been attacked twice since early 2020.
The IAEA report gave a scathing review of Iran’s recent nuclear activity, ignoring the fact that Tehran is no longer bound by the 2015 nuclear deal. Western media jumped on this aspect of the report while the fact that Israel destroyed IAEA equipment in a brazen attack was barely reported.

So when will drones attack the Dimona nuclear weapons production site in Israel?
What will the same people say about that?
The only difference is that Iran threatens to burnIsrael, and not vice versa.
Are you kidding? Israel threatens Iran almost every day.
Israel furthermore is lobbying others (USA, SA ) to attack Iran.
You have him squirming now. We should hear about the 1994 attack in Argentina shortly.
jake is delusional and brainwashed on believing Zionist mantras over the facts…!
How about facts-Iran oppossed the Oslo talks-forcing the Palestinians to be more hard line.
Zionsim is good.
Not squirming-saddened by human stupidity.
Please stay silly..love the hysterics!. You have no idea what you are writing about. Period.
potc alls the kettle black
So am I. Every time I read one of your comments.
Interpersonal digs add nothing to the conversation, and merely show how weak your positions are. The situation is tragic.
Iran is has eight times the population,Iran started this mess
Israel has nukes and owns the superpower’s congress. So its 6 million + 330 million + 535.
Adding apples and pears-you have spent too much time at the roullete wheels.
You’re the one that brought up numbers. Again, I was responding to what you wrote.
Mess started in 1953 by Ike.
Very correct. Ike also commissioned the overthrow of the Syrian government, a work in progress.
True for once-the coup was totally wrong. But Ike was not close at all to Israel, and Dulles was very very far from
being close to Israel.
My point was Iran didn’t start this mess. I respond to what you write. Try doing the same.
The revolutionary regieme started its war against Israel.
Exaggerated nonsense. There is no war against Israel. The only damage inflicted has been BY Israel.
Have they bombed Israel? Sent in ground troops? Or, have they killed any scientists? Sabotaged Israel’s nuclear facilities, you know, the one that produces actual nukes? Do you know the meaning of war?
You have a short memory.
in other words, you applaud terrorism.
By pointing out that Israel threatened to attack Iran?
So, when Israel murdered Iranian scientists , that was not an act of terrorism????
justified self defense-never again!
An act of terrorism if anyone else had done the same. Including, and especially, if it were done to one the parasitic state’s scientist.
Israel has killed Iranian scientists, threatens Iran every day, and, yesterday Israeli leaders said they were very close to attacking Iran.
And, Israel has the means and the BOMB.
As they should have.
Oh the satire…lol…Iran cares nothing about Israel, and why should it?? Israel at every turn tries to undermine, and attack Iran covertly because Iran will never respect that state terror apparatus that’s running Israel into the ground. Furthermore Iran is aligned with the Palestinian people..the actual, and rightful owners of the Palestine.
Meanwhile. Israel exist sand grows stronger every day. As far as what Iran cares about, its troops train around a mock up of Jerusalem, with the Iranian flag over the dome of the Rock.
All of your hubris is based around your satire. No facts! Israel’s government and brainwashed military are weak because that think and act with a KKK mindset..as you do also!
Mock and snicker all that you please.Mean while,lovely new homes are being built every day in Judea and Samaria, and happy,well fed children ares singing songs in Hebrew. By the way, new U.S.F-35’s are being delivered every day.
You really hope to see a war.
“Our enemies know — not from statements, but from actions — that we are much more determined and much more clever, and that we do not hesitate to act when it is needed,”
A very small nation against the world.
Yes, it would appear that Iran is a small nation against the world.
Iran sees itself as the future power in the mid east. They have oil,a large, young population, they have their devoted revolutionary guards, and they have a secret police force. They are also patient.They remember the greatness of the Persian empire, and covet Mecca,Medina, and Jerusalem.
Please… you know nothing about Iran. Iran only wishes to coexist with its neighbors. Israel not so much since its mantra is state sponsored terrorism, apartheid, murdering children and stealing land…why should Iran embrace such a horrific and morally bankrupt country??
you need glasses!
So was Nazi Geremany.
Germany was not a small nation.
Population wise they were much smaller than the British empire yet they dwarfed them militarily. So you constantly referring to the population differences between Iran and Israel is as irrelevant now as it was back then.
Iran is at war with its own people,imprisoning and torturing,crushing dissent, and quite willing to sacrifice a million or more of them and a hundred years of progress in a prolonged ideologic, hate war. You underestimate the power of hate in a midieval mind.Look at the hundred years war, for instance.
Israel is at war with its own people, imprisoning and torturing, crushing dissent, and quite willing to sacrifice half or more of them in a prolonged ideologic, hate war.
You just hate Israel,the only country in the mid east that does allow peaceful protest.
Even if your fantasies were within the realm of reality, what exactly would the superpower be doing while the hordes of Iranians are overrunning poor Israel? And what’s the worry? Israel has promised to use the Samson Option is they are being overrun and they have real nukes to make good on that promise.
It may be hard for you to understand, but some cultures embrace life,others embrace death.
Promising to eliminate as much mankind as they possibly can with the Samson Option is embracing life?
Mutually Assured Destruction has prevented the nucleocaust for 75 years.
So no on embracing life.
Quite the contrary-if your enemies know they will loose the fight, they will avoid fighting. win win situation
It means both sides will be destroyed.
The US,Russia, and China have not nuked each other because of MAD-nuclear war is too costly. I think that is a very good thing.
Irrelevant-even Stalin said that quantity has a certain quality.Iran sacrificed its children against Iraq, and is ruthless and oppressive against its own Muslim citizens;what do you think they will do others?
No it isn’t irrelevant. It refutes your point about populations. Nazi Germany was puny compared to others but had a vastly superior military. That’s why they were so dangerous. Sure quantity has a certain quality but it has to do with the size of the military and not the population. What is irrelevant is the rest of your post. Not only irrelevant but more exaggerated bullsh*t. Apartheid practicing Israel has already promised to nuke anyone and everyone if they are being overrun so we already know what they will do to others.
“apartheid”-if the guy next door is trying to kill you, you build a fence. Meanwhile,there are 1.8 million Arab citizens of Israel,with reasonably full rights. Most Arab nations evicted thei Jewish citizens, Talk about apartheid!
Interesting advice. But the Palestinians in the West Bank would have to find a way to get the Israeli occupation troops out before building the fence.
A sad conundrum-they are the victim of 2000 years of Judaeophobia, plus poor leadership on their own part.,
And if he is living amongst you inside that fence you make him a lesser citizen with the Jewish Nation State law.
But a safer citizen with more rights than he would enjoy in any Muslim nation.
I see. So it’s no longer about building a fence because people want to kill you?
Iran is a small nation, Israel is a pariah pretending to be a nation. What actions do you speak of?? Zionists are not clever, humane, or in touch with their neighbors. Love your satire!!
Israel’s demands for the rest of the world to deny Iran her NPT rights because Israel fears Iran may decide to build a nuclear weapons counter force capability are ludicrous and counterproductive. Israel’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” regional nuclear weapons arsenal estimated to be up to 200 weapons currently threatens not only Iran’s security and the entire ME’s, but far more importantly the very survival of the NPT’s global creditability.
The world must first deal with the security threat of Israel’s existing NPT outlaw regional nuclear arsenal. Sooner or later, the continued existence of Israel’s regional nuclear weapons threat will force Iran, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and or Israel’s other larger regional neighbors to abandon the NPT and build their own nuclear counterforce capabilities.
Unless the world prioritizes support for the NPT and members in good standing over Israel’s desire to maintain her highly destabilizing NPT outlaw nuclear regional monopoly, the inevitable result will be the final collapse of the NPT’s global creditability because of completely worthless promises to protect the security interests of non-nuclear club members from those of nuclear club members.
The bad news for geographically tiny nuclear club member Israel is that Israelis will eventually be left holding the shortest of all possible ends of multiple Mutual Assured Destruction survival relationships with her nuclear armed neighbors. The greatest of all MAD threats has always been either the accidental or rogue release of a single weapon which cascades into a general exchange. In such an event, Israel’s tiny geography makes it most unlikely to survive ever a few nukes regardless of whatever happens to her larger and more likely to survive neighbors.
In the long run, the hard reality is the NPT is both Israel’s and the rest of the ME’s greatest security ally. Their worse collective security enemy is Israel’s NPT outlaw nuclear Golam whose very existence is relentlessly seeking the companionship of its own kind among Israel’s regional neighbors. Before it is too late, Israel has the opportunity choose it’s own fate with either the NPT or it’s faithless nuclear Golam
1.The word is Golem.
2.If it is legal for China to have nukes,it is legal for Israel to have nukes.
3.Israel did not sign the NPT-therefore,her nukes are legal.
4.It is Iran who started this mess, with her clear intention to burn Israel.
By your logic Iran should be able to have nukes if China does. And Iran has just got to leave the NPT, build a nuke and it’s legal. Your brilliance should be passed on to the Iranians.
