Iran thwarted an act of sabotage targeting one of the buildings belonging to the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) early Wednesday.

The act of sabotage targeted an AEOI building near Karaj, west of Tehran, Iranian media reported.

The attack did not result in any casualties or damage owing to tight security precautions adopted following similar acts of sabotage against Iranian nuclear sites and the assassination of prominent scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh last year.

A similar attack on Natanz nuclear facility in April reportedly led a number of the centrifuge machines (used in Uranium enrichment) going off-grid. It hit electricity network of Ahmadi Roshan nuclear enrichment facility in Natanz.
