Iran’s Only Nuclear Power Plant Has Emergency Shutdown
Gee this happens right after the so called “Butcher of Tehran” is elected President of Iran. Israel isn’t happy about it and one has to wonder if this nuclear plant shutdown is a welcome gift from Israel. The nuclear deal talks in Vienna have stalled again as well. Here is the English version of an article I found on warnews 24/7.
For the first time since its commissioning in 2013, Iran’s only nuclear power plant has been declared “emergency” and shut down for “repairs”.
The Bushehr plant is Iran’s only nuclear power plant and is used for uranium enrichment.
A message to the new extremist president of Iran?
Is it a “welcome” message from Israel to Iran’s new president? No one can say for sure, but Israeli sources describe Iran’s new president as a “butcher”, saying that ” Iran elected the most extremist president since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.”
The Bushehr nuclear power plant, which has a 1,000 MW reactor, was built by Russia and put into operation in 2013.
Reliable sources speak of something “very serious” that put the factory in a “state of emergency” for the first time .
Technical “failure” at the Bushehr nuclear power plant
The Bushehr nuclear power plant in southern Iran was shut down “for a few days” after a technical “failure”, the Iranian Atomic Energy Agency announced.
“After a technical failure at the Bushehr station, the facility was temporarily shut down and cut off from the national power grid,” the agency said in a brief statement, without elaborating on the nature of the problem.
According to the national electricity distribution company, the Bushehr nuclear power plant was undergoing “repair” work of an unspecified nature , which may last until the end of the week, which for Iran means Friday.
Israeli attack plans on the table
The company asked the Iranians to limit electricity consumption in order not to burden the grid at a time when the country is experiencing high temperatures.
At the same time, the new head of the Mossad, David Barnea, threatened to launch more covert operations against Iran inside Iranian territory!
It was announced yesterday that the Security Council of Israel will meet to consider the options for air strikes in Iran after the election of the new president, Ebrahim Raisi.
Therefore, all plans for an attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities must be reviewed and brought to the attention of the new Israeli government, according to credible information.
Israeli sources emphasize that with the election of a new president in Iran “all options are on the table”!
Israel: Raisi’s election in Iran ‘should be of great concern’ to world
The election of Ebrahim Raisi as president of Iran “should cause great concern” in the world, said a spokesman for the Israeli Foreign Ministry, accusing the newly conservative newly elected president of being committed to Iran’s military nuclear program.
“Mr Rice is committed to a fast-paced military nuclear program, his election clearly reveals Iran’s dangerous intentions and should be of great concern to the international community,” Lior Hayat wrote on Twitter, adding that Iran elected the most extremist president since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
The head of the Judiciary, 60-year-old Ebrahim Raisi, was imposed in the first round of the presidential election amid general dissatisfaction with Iran’s economic and social crisis.
“We have to prepare quickly for a return to the Iranian nuclear deal, ” Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid said this week, adding that “Israel will do everything possible to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear bomb.”
Student of the supreme leader
Born in November 1960 in the holy city of Mashhad, Raisi was appointed attorney general of Karaj, next to Tehran, at the age of just 20 after the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
He remained in the judiciary for more than three decades: Tehran’s attorney general from 1989 to 1994, deputy head of the judiciary from 2004 to 2014, the year he was nominated as Iran’s attorney general.
In 2016, the country’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, appointed Raisi head of the powerful charity Astan-e Konz Razani, which manages Imam Reza’s mausoleum in Mashhad and his vast real estate. Three years later he was appointed head of the Judicial Authority.
Rice, who always wears the black turban of Sayyid (a descendant of Muhammad), attended Ayatollah Khamenei’s religious and Islamic law classes.
According to his official biography, from 2018 he also taught a Shiite seminar in Mashhad. Many Iranian media have suggested he may be the successor to Iran’s 82-year-old supreme leader in July.
Raisin is also a member of the Council of Experts, which appoints the supreme leader.
He is married to Jamileh Alamolhonda, a professor at Sahid-Behehdi University in Tehran, and they have two daughters. Raisi is the son-in-law of Ahmad Alamolhonda, an imam and regional representative of the supreme leader in Mahsad, Iran’s second holiest city.
For the exiled Iranian opposition, Rice’s name is associated with the mass executions of Marxists and left-wing prisoners in 1988, when he was deputy prosecutor in Tehran’s Revolutionary Court.
When asked in 2018 and 2020 about this black page in Iran’s recent history, Raisi denied any involvement, but praised the “command” given, he said, by Ayatollah Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic Republic. for these clearances.
