An Iranian general has accused Israel of ‘ manipulating weather ’ to prevent rain over the Islamic republic . He said they also stole the country ’ s clouds .Brigadier – General Gholam Jalali, head of Iran ’ s Civil Defence Organisation , alleged that his country was facing cloud ‘ theft ’ according to Metro UK .

He said , “ The changing climate in Iran is suspicious. Foreign interference is suspected to have played a role in climate change , ” insisting that the results from an Iranian scientific study ‘ confirmed ’ 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 .

“ On top of that , we are facing the issue of cloud and snow theft , ” he added .

Iran ’ s own meteorological service struck a sceptical note , however . Head of its meteorological service , Ahad Vazife , held a different view from that of the senior military officer .

He said , “ 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 .

“ Iran has suffered a prolonged drought , and this is a global trend that does not apply only to Iran . Raising such questions does not only solve any of our problems , but will deter us from finding the right solutions . ”

Jalali’ s allegations of weather pilfering were not the first time an Iranian official has accused the country ’ s foes of stealing its rain . Former President , Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, in 2011 accused Western countries of devising plans to “ cause drought ” in Iran , adding that “ European countries used special equipment to force clouds to dump ” their water on their continent .
