Previously, Iran accused "Israel" of launching several attacks on facilities related to its nuclear program and assassinating its atomic scientists during the past years.
The last of these targets was the electricity distribution network in the Martyr Ahmadi Roshan complex in the Natanz facility getting attacked in April, which nearly led to "a disaster and a crime against humanity in the event of radioactive contamination," according to a statement by the spokesman for the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Iran's delegate to the International Atomic Energy Agency, Kazem Gharibabadi, said that "Israel's involvement in the Natanz reactor incident seems very obvious."
