PHOTO: In 2018, Netanyahu let the world know that Israel knew everything Iran was up to, and that the Jewish state would act alone if necessary.

Last week, Israel Today reported on a mysterious blast at a secret Iranian facility in Khojir, twenty kilometers east of Tehran.

It later appeared Iran had been working on the development of long-range ballistic missiles or even intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM’s) at Khojir and that this facility was the target of what seemed to be a new cyber attack.

An American weapons expert said, based on the images she reviewed and that showed a huge orange fireball, that the explosion was in a factory that produces ballistic liquid-fuel missiles.

Jonathan Schanzer, a former US Treasury terror finance specialist pointed to an article in the Intelligence Times that confirmed that the huge blast took place in the Khojir complex in buildings of the Hemmat Missile Industries Factory.
