Local residents of Bushehr, in southern Iran, awoke to the rumbling of anti-aircraft that guards the city’s nuclear power plant, early Friday morning.
At about 4 a.m. local time, the Bushehr power plant air defense system began firing cannon shells. The firing continued for some 20 minutes while some local residents reported the sighing of what seemed to be a red shining object in the city’s skyline, BAZTAB reported from the area.
Also three weeks ago, the anti-aircraft system of Arak, in central province where a heavy water reactor is under construction, reportedly shot down a bright object possibly as part of a military exercise.
Russian media has recently reported that Iranian nuclear sites might come under attack on April 6. Iran’s air defense is reportedly in full alert.
