BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 P.M.) – On the evening of Tuesday, the Iranian media reported that 13 people were killed and 6 others wounded in an explosion at a medical facility north of the capital, Tehran.

Hamid-Reza Godrezi, Tehran’s deputy governor, told state television that the explosion was caused by a gas leak.

Iranian sites indicated that the explosions took place at the Sina Medical Center on Shari’ati Street, near Tarshish District, north of the capital, Tehran.

It reported that the explosions caused partial destruction in some of the neighboring buildings.

The head of the Iranian emergency center said that the explosion occurred on the underground floor of the therapeutic center, pointing out that it was possible that the accident was caused by explosions in the gas capsules.

The authorities closed Shari’ati Street as a result of the explosions, while Tehran Fire Brigade reported the possibility of renewed explosions due to the presence of oxygen capsules in the medical center.
