A battery explosion in the Shahid Darvishi shipyard in Bandar Abbas, Iran, killed three officials from Iran's armed forces. The officials were repairing a submarine, according to Iranian state media. Sharvid Darvishi shipyard builds and repairs surface vessels and submarines. This explosion follows a fire, on February 3, at Iran's Space Research Center, in which three Iranian aerospace researchers died. These events have led to speculation about possible sabotage at Iran's military installations by the United States.
