‘Israeli cyberattack caused explosions at Iran nuclear site – and was in retaliation for Tehran’s attempt to hack Israel’s water infrastructure’. Israel has been accused of being responsible for two explosions at Iranian facilities over the past week, with a Kuwaiti newspaper reporting on Friday that the nation was behind the blasts.

The mystery source claims that the attacks are expected to set Iran’s nuclear enrichment programme back by approximately two months.
