An Iranian general has accused Israel of ‘manipulating weather’ to prevent rain over the Islamic republic – aka, stealing the country’s clouds.
Brigadier General Gholam Reza Jalali, head of Iran’s Civil Defence Organisation, alleged that his country was facing cloud ‘theft’ during a press conference.
However he was later contradicted by the nation’s weather chief.
Speaking at the conference, the general said: ‘The changing climate in Iran is suspect.
‘Foreign interference is suspected to have played a role in climate change’.
