Barak takes to Facebook on Iranian blast

Defense minister praises second mysterious blast in Iran on Independent Party's Facebook page, commenting: 'The more the merrier' before post version was modified

Defense Minister Ehud Barak took to the Independent Party's Facebook page on Wednesday to praise the second mysterious blast on Iran's nuclear facilities.


On the party's official social webpage a comment was posted next to a picture of Barak reading "the more the merrier," in regards to the blast that took place at a munitions depot near Tehran last week.

Some time afterwards the version was modified, clarifying that "'the more the merrier' post was written by the webpage manager, and not by the defense minister, as previously suggested."

The London-based The Times newspaper reported that recent satellite pictures reveal that despite Iran denying so, the mysterious blast did in fact damage the uranium conversion plant in Ispahan.


The images published in TheTimes clearly shows smoke rising from the damaged facility. Meanwhile, Iran has continually denied the incident ever took place.


Israeli intelligence officials told The Times that there was "no doubt" the explosion damaged the nuclear facility in Ispahan, maintaining it was no accident.


After the first mysterious blast a couple of weeks ago in Iran, while most Israeli officials avoided discussing the blast, Barak said in an interview with Army Radio that he didn't know what caused the blast but added "the more the merrier."
