As of last Wednesday evening, rescue teams have failed to reach them. According to the main version, it was an act of sabotage. It is assumed that the explosives were brought to the object gradually, under the guise of heavy equipment and tanks with hexa-fluoride uranium. The epicenter of the explosion was in the third compartment of centrifuges, which is located directly above the storage of enriched uranium.
It is worth noting that the authorities have not confirmed the explosion.
Currently the area is cordoned off within 24 kilometers and the highway leading from Tehran to the holy Shiite city of Qom is also blocked.
According to experts, the reactor at Fordo which has 2,700 centrifuges, can yield 20% enriched uranium, which can be converted into nuclear fuel for a bomb in a matter of weeks.
