Today, Thursday, Al-Arabiya sources reported that at least two people were killed in an explosion and fire in a market in the Iranian capital, Tehran.
The cause of this explosion was not immediately known, which is part of a series of mysterious explosions and fires in Iran.
Two weeks ago, Iranian media reported hearing a huge explosion southwest of the capital, Tehran, in the Shahabad Square area, referring to an explosion in a gas pipeline.
At the time, Jalal Al-Maliki, a spokesman for the Fire Department, said that the fire was caused by a gas leak from the pipe due to excavations in the area.
It is noteworthy that Iran witnessed this year a series of mysterious fires, the last of which was the Natanz facility 3 weeks ago, amid contradictory accounts from the Iranian authorities regarding the cause of the explosion.
Also, a fire broke out last April in a factory for explosives and firecrackers in the central province of Isfahan, injuring 9 workers, the causes of which were not determined.
On May 8, a large fire broke out at the entrance to the city of Bushehr in the south of the country, which includes the Bushehr nuclear plant.
A major fire broke out in the port of Bushehr last July, which led to the burning of at least 7 ships, without causing any casualties.
In addition, in the past months of this year, the country experienced a wave of fires in companies and factories in several cities, including Qom, Isfahan and Qazvin, without disclosing the reasons.
