An Iranian general has accused Israel of stealing its clouds in order to manipulate weather and cause drought in the Islamic Republic.
Brigadier General Gholam Reza Jalali, head of Iran’s Civil Defence Organisation said that the changing climate in Iran is ‘suspect’.
‘Foreign interference is suspected to have played a role in climate change,’ said Jalali, who insisted results from an Iranian scientific study ‘confirm’ the claim.
‘Israel and another country in the region have joint teams which work to ensure clouds entering Iranian skies are unable to release rain,’ he said.
‘On top of that, we are facing the issue of cloud and snow theft.’
