IRAN is “digging tunnels and building underground facilities for sensitive security and military initiatives in the pursuit of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles”, a chilling document has claimed.
The explosive claim was made in an official Iranian Resistance paper, produced by the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI). The NCRI document contains damning assertions which implicate Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) in the production and concealment of nuclear-ready ballistic missiles. An NCRI representative has spoken to Express.co.uk about his group’s concerns.
The NCRI manuscript, entitled Iran’s Ballistic Buildup, states: “On the basis of conclusions gleaned from the country’s defeat in the Iran-Iraq war, the regime began digging tunnels and building underground facilities for sensitive security and military initiatives.”
It continues: “It was decided that all the regime’s sensitive military sites, nuclear-related facilities, and missile-related facilities should be relocated to underground sites or to sites built inside mountains.
“Some of the most senior IRGC commanders have pursued this project since the Iran-Iraq ceasefire in 1988.”
The paper purports to reveal the exact “names and details” of the “main companies involved in building tunnels and secret military facilities”.
They include ‘Khatam al-Anbia Construction Headquarters’, which the paper claims “is the primary oversight body for all IRGC and other military engineering units”.
The document goes on to contend ‘Pars Banay-e Sabz Construction and Industrial Company’ and ‘Parsian Technology Company’ are involved in building tunnels, missile launch pads, ammunition bunkers and military structures.
Hossein Abedini, a representative from the anti-regime faction, warned it was not just Iran’s bellicose nuclear weapons policy that was of concern.
He told Express.co.uk: “When we are dealing with this terrorist fanatic regime in Iran, there is a package of concerns.
