Iran has been witnessing dozens of mysterious fires and explosions across the country in recent weeks.

On Thursday, Iran’s nuclear body said an accident had taken place at a construction site at the Natanz nuclear facility without causing casualties.

On Tuesday, an explosion at a medical clinic north of the capital Tehran claimed the lives of 19 people and injured over a dozen others.

On June 25, another explosion took place close to a sensitive military site near Tehran which a defense ministry spokesman told state TV was caused by a tank leak at a gas storage facility.
