8:07 PM EST — Blast in Hamedan, Hamedan Province of Iran. 4th one tonight Each incident site is at least a couple of hundred km far from each other.
8:13 PM EST — The flow of news out of Iran has just . . . stopped. Nothing coming through. Complete silence. Something is up . . .
ANALYSIS — The most peculiar part of the reporting above is that the Embassy of Azerbaijan, in Tehran, is being EVACUATED right now. So I found myself asking, WTF?
Then I recalled, Azerbaijan is having a tiff with Armenia (again) and the Iranians (Shia Muslims) are backing (Christian) Armenia. So I started wondering if tonight’s attacks inside Iran might actually have something to do with Azerbaijan?
I note as well, that both Russian and Iran state media are reporting, almost from gitgo, that tonight’s attacks “are suspected to be from a NATO or NATO-Linked Country.” Would that be Azerbaijan?
Just yesterday, the head of security at the Azerbaijan Embassy in Tehran was murdered. It is now being RUMORED (unconfirmed) that he was part of an operation to smuggle micro drones into the Embassy, and those drones might be what’s attacking inside Iran tonight. These RUMORS (again, unconfirmed) go on to claim that Iran found out what was coming, couldn’t do anything in time to prevent it, so they allegedly outright murdered the Head of Security for the Azerbaijan Embassy.
All very convoluted.
Still awaiting more info.
8:24 PM EST — News is coming that the Internet has been TOTALLY off in Iran
