A large fire has erupted at Tondguyan
Oil Refinery near Tehran. The manner which the
tank collapses in the surveillance
video are excluded natural causes. Sabotage?
Iranian Navy’s largest vessel, the replenishment
oiler “IRIS Kharg”, burned and
sank off the coast of Jask Port (Iran). 25 people aboard have reportedly
Note: Are now the attacks even extended into Iranian waters
? The hull of the ship must have suffered considerable damage.
An video posted on social media shows
explosions aboard a tanker off
the coast of Baniyas. It is NOT the "Arman 114" (formerly "Adrian-Darya-1")
that was already to be hit on April 24th. It is a small tanker (also not
"Wisdom" again). The damages must be devastating, because for the first
time the command tower of a tanker was also the target of an attack.

A tanker burns after an attack in front of Baniyas port (Syria). Some
people were killed by an explosion. There is a photo of the
damage that suggests the deck
was penetrated by a guided projectile (no drone) and the explosion
spread inside the ship. Meanewhile ist clear that the burning tanker was
not an Iranian vessel, but a Beirut-registered tanker called "Wisdom"
which has just assisted the Iranian supertanker "Arman 114" (former "Adrian-Darya-1")
by offloading. It may be that the Iranian supertanker was the real target.
Iran’s Armed Forces chief Mohammad Bagheri threatened to “teach
Israel a very good lesson,” appearing to hint the Jewish state was behind
an attack on an Iranian tanker off Syria’s coast over the weekend. Bagheri
told reporters: "The moves made in the past few days and future
moves against their interests will bring them to their senses".

A missile identified as a Russian-made S-200 ("Dubna"?) exploded
in the Israeli Negev desert, near the "Dimona" nuclear power plant. Most
likely it came out of Syria from Iranian brigades operating there. The
rocket was not recognized and intercepted due to the surprise effect and
its high ballistic trajectory of up to 40 km. In contrast to the action
on the "Tomer" factory that was hit, the nuclear power plant was not the
target. It was just a warning. The missile
downfalled in Cyprus is likely
a disoriented and self-destroyed S-200.

explosion took place at a sensitive
defense „Tomer“ factory area in central Israel. The company manufactures
missiles for use by the IDF and other Israeli defense systems. There are
so far no reports of casualties. There should be great damages.
not an accident during an engine test.
The explosion is atypical for this.
The origin of the video is mysterious. The sequence
shows the beginning of the explosion, as if it were expected and the camera
was in fixed position. The distance is several kilometers.......
cannot be faster than light
Was that the Iranian answer to the attack in Natanz and the killing of
important people ? I think, Yes. Very dangerous !

A so far unspecified act interrupted
the internal electric power supply at Iran's Natanz nuclear site. Iran
reported it just hours after starting up new advanced centrifuges to enrich
uranium. Meanwhile it seems that in the part of the facility that
was completely destroyed after an explosion, several thousand (?) centrifuges
are unusable. Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman in press conference: "Inauspicious
attack on Natanz facility was a crime against humanity as it could cause
a disaster. If they (Israeli) wanted to undermine Iran's nuclear
facilities, they should know they have just damaged (old) IR-1
Note: Iran cannot be stopped with such actions as long as
the terrible sanctions are continued. However, Iran has a security problem.
Now, Iran named a person, named Reza Karimi, allegedly responsible
for the act of sabotage at the Natanz nuclear enrichment plant. The photo
of the man was shown by state-run TV channels. Karimi's position at the
facility was not explained. The person cannot be found.

US-Insider: Israel informed the
United States it attacked the Iranian semi-military ship „Saviz“ in the
Red Sea. The Israelis had notified that its forces had attacked the vessel
on April 06 at about 7:30 local time in international waters near Djibouti.
The ship was damaged below the water line.The
engine room was flooded.
Note: Iran is well advised if it does not respond to this "offer"
for naval warfare. Israel is in the stronger position because of its intolerable
March 26, 2021
A date to remember ! Two of the
Iranian ships Israel has attacked Israeli officials said. That
includes the container ship "Shar-e-Kord", sailing 50 miles off the coast
of Israel. With this admission, Israel has started the open sea war against
Iran, as was to be expected after the hypocritical attacks against
its own ships.
Have ben the
recent events the staged foreplay to Israeli open sea attacks to Iran?
According to an announcement, Israel has targeted Iranian tankers that
go to Syria and mainly carry Iranian oil. Since 2019 Israel has been using
spike-projectiles to damage some Iranian ships on their way to Syria in
the Red Sea and other areas of the region. But all such attacks never
confirmed by Israel.
In the early morning hours of March 25,
further Israeli-owned cargo ship was attacked by a "Dolphin"
submarine. The freighter "Lori" was on route from Tanzania to India in
the open Arabian Sea. The damage is always the same as before, precisely
set holes. After a short disorientation, the ship resumed its course to
Karachi. Calling Iran an aggressor is incomprehensible. The projectiles
are always fired in "sight" of the target from a modern submarine that
Iran does not have.
Israel accuses Iran of being responsible for the
recent oil spill on its shores, calling the incident environmental terrorism.
The spillage is said to have been caused by the Iranian oil tanker "Emerald",
which sails under the flag of Panama. The tanker turned off its tracking
devices after exiting the Suez Canal, which is not uncommon on the route
to Syria. The tanker is said to have spilled oil into the sea on February
1 or 2. Israel's Environment Ministry said it had collected strong "circumstantial
evidence" that this was the ship responsible for the spill, although are
no "forensic evidence". The next mysterious story and the question of
who should be influenced here.
Something completely new. Are Israel's
submarines damaging a ship of their own in order to be able to blame Iran
without that is questioning by others? Very mysterious.
The ship's sides at the level of deck
3 of the Israeli-owned freighter "Helios Ray" (flew the Bahaman flag),
sailing in the Gulf of Oman, was torn open by projectiles on the night
of the 25th to the 26th. The ship's owner, Rami Ungar, said that explosions
have left two holes in 1.5m diameter, just above the waterline. The holes
are similar to that from known attacks on tankers and is caused by the
same special ammunition as before.
On January 04 Iran's IRGC Navy has seized a South Korean chemical
tanker, the „Hankuk Chemi“. The tanker was heading from Al Jubail (Saudi
Arabia) to Fujairah (UAE). This route took her past Iranian waters in
the Strait of Hormuz. Iran justifies the seizing of the tanker with "oil
pollution in Gulf waters"
This is the likely background for the Iranian action:
About US$7 billion worth of Iranian assets is locked in South Korean
banks after Washington tightened sanctions against Tehran. In April last
year, Seoul gained sanctions exemption from Washington for exports of
humanitarian goods to Tehran.
Concrete, it is now about the instant and problem-free release of this
Iranian money for the purchase of COVID-19 vaccines from a global vaccine
Just before the end of the Trump era, another attempt at escalation.
"Unknown" has, nice visible,

Another sneaky and senseless commando action in which the Iranian
nuclear scientist M. Fakhrizadeh was
shot dead near Tehran on November 27th. We can guess who is behind this.
The foolish Trump will be gone soon, they have hurried. What arrogance
According to Iranian sources, M. Fakhrizadeh was the 7th
nuclear scientist to be murdered. The first nuclear scientist murdered
in Shiraz in 2007 was A. Hosseinpur.
Not to be forgotten is the probably planned destruction of the rocket
technology base near Bidganehin in 2011, at which H.T. Moghaddam
and 38 further persons were killed.
What further goals is Israel
pursuing besides the destruction of the centrifuge factory in Natanz,
-- Trump is being tested by Iran with a (announced !) missile attack
on the US military base Ain-al-Assad in Iraq. But that was not the final
Promt: Iran's Ajatollah Ali Chamenei said in a televised speech
on the missile attack on the US military base in Iraq that this action
was only a "slap in the face" and was not a "subject of revenge" for Soleimani’s
death. "Military actions of this kind are not enough," he said.
January 07 --The Iraqi parliament has demanded that US troops
be withdrawn from the country. Trump threatens sanctions. Iranian parliament
has classified all Pentagon commanders (Trump included) who were responsible
for Soleimani's death as "terrorists".
"Americans should know that we discussed 13 scenarios in the National
Security Council regarding a backlash, and even the weakest option would
be a historic nightmare for the United States," said Iranian Defense Minister
January 03 -- Near Baghdad Airport a US-drone killed Ghassem
Soleimani, one of Iran's most ranking and capable generals.
The crazy Mr.Trump (alias Sanctionator) threw a stick of dynamite
into a powder keg. This uncultured and arrogant type is a shame for the
Iranian National Security Council: "The response to the assassination
of Soleimani will cover the entire region."......
International Maritime Organization that "two other Iranian flagged tankers
were similarly attacked in the same approximate area” as Sabiti in the
last 6 months.
In a letter, the Iranian government said the "Happiness" and the "Helm"
were targets of the previously undisclosed attacks, in
April and August respectively. The the National
Iranian Tanker Co. said the Happiness had suffered “engine failure and
loss of control” and the Helm “technical issues.”

Iran has now hijacked

On April 30, the Iranian oil
tanker "Happiness" suffered a reported malfunction.
According to Iranian officials, the incident had while "Happiness" was
on its way to the Suez Canal, and that water had leaked into the tanker’s
engine room. In its analysis, Dryad Maritime said the incident involving
the "Happiness" bore "the hallmarks of a potential explosive incident."
In August another oil tanker, the "Helm",
faced a "technical failure" while passing through the Red Sea.
