Iran accuses other country of stealing its clouds and snow
A senior Iranian official accused Israel of stealing Iranian clouds and causing drought in the country.
General Ghulam Reza Jalali, head of Iran’s civil defense, said Israel’s goal of stealing the clouds was to manipulate the weather and cause drought in the Islamic Republic.
Reza Jalali said in remarks quoted by the Daily Mail newspaper that climate change in Iran is suspicious.
Jalali based his comments on an Iranian scientific study confirms this, explaining that Iran is unable in this case to conduct the process of rain.
“Moreover, we face the issue of snow theft and clouds,” he said.
Jalali noted that the areas located at a height of 7200 feet in the mountainous areas between Afghanistan and the Mediterranean Sea covered with snow, except Iran. Which has raised doubts in Iranian meteorology.
The Daily Mail, quoting an Iranian meteorological official, said Iran had suffered a long drought, which could not apply only to Iran.
The Iranian official’s claims are not the first of its kind in the country, In 2011, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad accused Western countries of preparing plans for drought in Iran.
“Today our country is heading towards drought, which is partly unintentional because of industry and partly because of the destruction of the enemy to withdraw to our country and this is a war that Iran will overcome,” he said.
