Irão acusa Israel de sabotagem na instalação nuclear de Natanz
April 12, 2021 -
O Irão acusou Israel de um ataque à sua principal instalação de
enriquecimento de urânio em Natanz, destruindo algumas centrifugadoras, e ameaçou com represálias.
Israel has not claimed responsibility for the attack. However, suspicion fell immediately on it as Israeli media widely reported that the country had orchestrated a devastating cyberattack that caused the blackout, AP said.
Sunday’s assault and Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh’s comments blaming Israel could imperil ongoing talks in Vienna with world powers about saving a tattered accord aimed at curbing Iran’s nuclear programme.
If Israel was responsible, it would further heighten tensions between the two nations, already engaged in a shadow conflict across the wider Middle East. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who met Sunday with U.S. Defence Secretary Lloyd Austin, has vowed to do everything in his power to stop the reviving of the nuclear deal.
