Military Intelligence: Iran blast set back missile program

Israel's Military Intelligence says that the explosion two weeks ago at a missile base outside Tehran has set back Iran's ability to produce missiles at that base, but that Iran has other locations at which it is producing missiles.
"The blast in the site where surface-to-surface missiles were developed can delay or bring to a complete halt the production of the missiles at that site," said head of the Directorate of Military Intelligence Research Section Department Brigadier General Itai baron at a briefing in the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee.

"However," Baron cautioned, "It must be emphasized that Iran has other development sites other than the one that was destroyed."

The head of the research department also commented on the November 8 report issued by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), which determined that Iran was pursuing a nuclear weapons program, saying the report "won't change Iran's course of action.

"The nuclear program will continue to progress despite the mounting pressures in Iran, and the worsening economic situation that might undermine the stability of the regime," Baron noted.
I guess we need a few more explosions in Iran. Heh.
