Iran announced on Saturday that it had started up advanced uranium enrichment centrifuges at Natanz, in a breach of its undertakings under the 2015 nuclear deal, days after the start of talks on rescuing the accord.
An 'accident' struck the electrical distribution grid of the Natanz nuclear facility, a day after the government announcement, according to a spokesperson for Iranís civilian nuclear programme.

Bad developments in the Middle East as Iran recently confirmed that the Natanz nuclear plant was hit. The strike is particularly serious and will undermine Tehran's nuclear capabilities.
Western intelligence services and the Israeli media admit that the operation was carried out by Mossad.
An Israeli defense analyst who spoke recently said that " without Natanz centrifuges, Iran will lose its negotiating papers for the coming months. "The United States has expressed its satisfaction through diplomatic channels."
At the same time, it became known that the representative of the Atomic Nuclear Organization of Iran, Behrouz Kamalvandi, was injured this morning at the Natanz facility, hitting his head and ankle.
According to the Israeli channel 12, a security council will be held in Israel that will deal exclusively with the issue of Iran and its nuclear program.
The toast of Netanyahu with the Leader of MOSAD
In a video and video that you will see shortly, Netanyahu, together with the Chief of MOSAD, Yossi Cohen and the Minister of Information, Eli Cohen, proceeded to a toast at the General Staff.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly said:
" The battle against Iran and its aftermath is great. The situation that exists today does not mean that it will exist tomorrow. We will continue with all our strength and we will succeed. "
The point is that there is a rapid escalation now and Israel is beating Iran everywhere inside and outside the country, which means that the time for direct confrontation will not be late.
The list goes on and on: Qassem Soleimani, Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, Iran's spy ship "Saviz", attack now on Natanz, attacks on other ships, attacks on Syria.
Israel beats Iran's nuclear facilities
According to reliable information from WarNews247, Israeli media reported that a cyber attack by Mossad took place, as a result of which Iran's nuclear program was severely damaged.
We remind you that Israel has again hit Iran's nuclear facilities with a cyber attack. In 2010 he "planted" the "Stuxnet" virus that destroyed more than 1,000 centrifuges.
Western intelligence confirms "Israeli attack" on Iran's nuclear facilities
Was there a sabotage operation or a cyber attack?
There are two scenarios at the moment: Either Israel "planted" a virus at the Danz nuclear plant and launched a cyber attack controlling the flow of electricity or it is a natural sabotage operation by MOSAD agents.
The second scenario reinforces the fact that we are talking about MOSAD and not the Israeli unit "UNIT 8200" that specializes in cyber attacks
Iran: "It is a terrorist act"
The incident at the Natanz nuclear plant in Iran today was the result of a "terrorist act."
This was stated by the head of the country's atomic energy service, Ali Akbar Salehi, according to state television, reiterating that it was an act of "nuclear terrorism".
Salehi said the international community and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) should deal with nuclear terrorism, he called it, adding that Iran reserves the right to take action against the perpetrators, state television said.
Iran said earlier that a problem with the electricity distribution network at its Natanz facility had caused the incident.
The details of the incident, on Sunday morning, came out with the dropper, with the first information talking about a power outage that was caused in the power distribution network.
At the Natanz facility, Iranian authorities have launched advanced centrifuges, which is prohibited by the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.
"There were no injuries or infections," authorities said earlier, adding that "an investigation is underway into the cause of the accident and more information will be released later."
In early July, an advanced centrifuge assembly plant was severely damaged by a mysterious explosion. The Iranian authorities considered that it was "sabotage" by "terrorists", but they have not yet made known the results of their investigation.
Iranian President Hassan Rohani on Saturday inaugurated the new Natanz centrifuge assembly plant, while ordering the commissioning or testing of three new centrifuges.
These will offer Iran the opportunity to enrich more uranium and faster, to the extent and to the extent prohibited by the 2015 agreement reached in Vienna between the Islamic Republic and the international community.
The United States unilaterally withdrew from this agreement in 2018, re-imposing on Iran its sanctions, which they had lifted under this agreement.
In retaliation, Iran stopped fulfilling most of its major commitments under the 2019 Vienna agreement to curb its nuclear activities.
Talks are currently under way in Vienna between the Islamic Republic and the other parties to the 2015 agreement (Germany, China, France, Britain and Russia) on how to return the United States to this agreement reached in the Austrian capital.
