Iranian general accused Israel of stealing clouds and snow from mountain peaks

The head of the Iranian Meteorological Service was skeptical and said that it was impossible.

The head of the Iranian Civil Defense Office Gholam Reza Jalali said that Israel is unleashing a climate war, “working to ensure that clouds falling into the Iranian sky could not bring rain.” Also, according to the general, we can talk about the theft of snow from the mountains.

He referred to the results of a study, but the head of the National Meteorological Service said that the country can not steal snow or clouds.

Charges of Jalali are not the first time an Iranian official accused the country’s enemies of stealing rain clouds. Former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in 2011 accused Western countries of developing plans to “cause a drought” in Iran, adding that “European countries used special equipment to force clouds to dump” water on their territory.

June 30 in the city of Khorramshahr, located in the south of the country, mass protests took place due to acute shortage of drinking water.
