Iran claimed Wednesday morning that an attempted act of sabotage targeting its nuclear program was foiled.

Iran’s state-controlled media outlet, PressTV, reported Wednesday that the alleged sabotage attempt was aimed at a building used by the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran.

Other Iranian media outlets, including Nour News, claimed that the building in question, located in the city of Karaj, had been attacked by an unmanned aircraft.

According to the report, there were no injuries or damage in the incident.

Just three days before the alleged attack on the AEOI building, Iran reported that it had temporarily shut down the nuclear power plant in Bushehr, without elaborating on the causes of the shutdown.

The incident comes after the US seized 36 website domains linked to the Iranian government and Iran-backed terrorist groups. PressTV’s domain was among the websites seized.
