Iran exile group claims blast hits missile base

Iran has been hit by several mysterious explosions in recent years but an Iranian lawmaker ruled out sabotage.



Washington: An Iranian exile group claims that a blast at a military installation near Tehran has resulted from the explosion of rockets at a base for the missile forces of Iran`s Revolutionary Guard Corps.

A former spokesman for the Mujahedin-e Khalq or MEK in Washington, citing reliable sources inside Iran, said on Saturday that the explosion hit the Modarres Garrison of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps west of Tehran.
Alireza Jafarzadeh said the garrison belongs to the IRGC`s missile unit and the blasts "resulted from the explosion of IRGC missiles”.

Iranian officials said the blast was the result of an accidental explosion at an ammunition depot. They said it killed at least 27 soldiers.
