Javad Karimi-Ghodousi, a member of the Iranian parliament's national security committee, asserted that a "security breach" led to an explosion at the Natanz nuclear complex. Karimi-Ghodousi also dismissed theories that "an object from outside" struck Natanz. At the same time, Iran's Foreign Ministry said that foreign governments might have conducted cyberattacks against Iranian facilities.
