Could the United States be behind a move to sabotage power lines at Iran’s nuclear facilities? The Daily Beast on Wednesday suggested that US Special Forces, which have been training for operation inside Islamic Republic for years, could already be on the ground .

On Monday, Fereydoun Abbasi, Iran’s vice president and the chief of its nuclear energy agency, said that power lines between the city of Qom and the underground Fordo nuclear centrifuge facility were blown up with explosives on August 17. The power lines leading to Iran’s Natanz facilities were blown up as well, he said.

According to the report in The Daily Beast, The US military been studying Iran’s infrastructure closely, and in 2009 discovered a weakness in Iran’s electrical grids that made it vulnerable to a cyber attack.

But Abbasi’s disclosure indicates opponents of the Iranian program are targeting the country’s electrical grid and are doing so on the ground, via a physical explosion as opposed to a cyber attack.
