A private Israeli intelligence firm releases satellite photographs of an alleged Iranian missile production facility outside Tehran, showing the damage at the site after an explosion there earlier in the week.

In the photographs, at least a quarter of the building, which the company — ImageSat International — said was a “secret missile base” belonging to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, can be seen completely destroyed, while additional damage can be seen on the roof along the entire structure.

The blast occurred on Monday, killing at least two members of the IRGC and injuring more, the organization said in a statement at the time.
