Local media reports that a powerful fire broke out at an oil refinery in the Salimi industrial area in the city of Azarshahr.
About this informs Tasnim.
Note that by coincidence, the fire at the plant broke out almost at the same time with a drone attack on an industrial center for the production of drones in Isfahan.
Let’s add that the city of Azarshahr is one of the largest industrial centers in northwestern Iran. This enterprise produced automotive oils.
