    Iran says, “Nothing to see here, move along...just a gas explosion.”

    It probably was a "nothing to see here" but it would be nice to know so that we could know if we have to get ready for something.

    Works for me. Says it's at a suspected underground missle assembly area. And mocks the attempted deception by the state run media.

    I saw something somewhere about some insurgency movement? That's even better.

    A new article from The Times of Israel reports sources say that the first huge explosion outside Teheran was the result of an Israeli F-35 missile attack on a suspected Iranian missile construction area and one used in the past to build atomic bomb triggers. If such an attack deep within Iranian territory is true, this is big news from several aspects. The article alleges the attack was in response to an Iranian cyber attempt to release large amount of chlorine into the Israeli water supply. It would also be a first test of F-35 capability to penetrate a Soviet radar/missile shield.

    This from This Morning's Briefing in the NYT:

    An explosion rocked western Tehran early today, state media reported, the third major recent nighttime explosion in Iran. The location this time wasn’t clear; the first two occurred at key military and nuclear bases.
