He added that no damage occurred, pointing out that the details will be immediately announced after the investigation is completed.
He stressed that everything that was published on social media on the subject is unrelated to the incident, pointing out that the mission of the anti-Iranian media is to exaggerate every incident and try to classify it as security.
He also added that the incident in Tehran caused the fall of some branches and leaves.
Videos were posted on social media, which activists said documented the explosion’s aftermath.
The footage documented the work of the police and firefighting units in front of Mellat Park, north of the Iranian capital, Tehran.
