10:02 am
israel for this attack in a tense what's being said. well the foreign ministry spokesman has just been speaking and what he said is that he was glad that there were no injuries or environmental. environmental disaster but he said it could have been a disaster he blamed israel is against iran's nuclear program and if this attack was an attempt to limit iran's capabilities then iran is claiming that the centrifuges that were damaged the older generation the one and they would be replaced with a more advanced. so yes iran is blaming israel but there is a lot of anger here at the moment because seems that israel has managed to infiltrate iran and managed to carry out attacks act well if i take you back to last year november iran's lead scientist most and factors are there was that they did in broad daylight just outside of the one and some of the same plants than the
