High-ranking Iranian general accuses Israel of “stealing their clouds” – the rain-producing clouds – in order to prolong the serious drought in Iran.
Times of Israel An Iranian general on Monday accused Israel of manipulating weather to prevent rain over the Islamic Republic, alleging his country was facing cloud “theft,” before being contradicted by the nation’s weather chief.
But country’s chief meteorologist disputes claim, says clouds and snow can’t be stolen. “Foreign interference is suspected to have played a role in climate change,” Jalali was quoted as saying, insisting results from an Iranian scientific study “confirm” the claim.
However, Iran’s own meteorological service struck a skeptical note..
General Jalali “probably has documents of which I am not aware, but on the basis of meteorological knowledge, it is not possible for a country to steal snow or clouds,” said the head of Iran’s meteorological service Ahad Vazife, quoted by ISNA.
Well, if they actually were, they have good reason, considering that the arson jihad by Hamas that has destroyed thousands of acres of farmland and forests in Israel is funded, in large part, by the Iranian regime.
