[ Editors Note:  Dear Mr. Alavi,  When scrap metal thieves can enter a nuclear facility to steal things, on multiple occasions, one can assume that people with much more talent than they could enter and do all kinds of mayhem.
There are little things called infrared cameras and motion detectors, audio and visual ones, that are widely used for perimeter protection. And 1.5 meters high is not enough. We have basketball players that could jump over that.
Perimeter fence areas are cleared of brush and anything else that could create noise to confuse the sound detectors. We would advise that you have a complete overhaul of all your important perimeter security so that no accidents can happen, as I am sure the Israelis now know they can hire local villagers to get them inside your facilities…Jim W.

Iran’s Intelligence Minister Mahmoud Alavi says four people recently arrested on suspicion of nuclear sabotage have proven to be simply scrap iron thieves.
Alavi’s Wednesday remarks came in response to October 6 remarks by Iran’s nuclear boss Ali Akbar Salehi about the arrest of four individuals who planned to sabotage a nuclear energy facility.

“These four were not saboteurs. Because there was scrap iron and steel [piled up] on the premises of the [nuclear] site, they had cut holes into the fence of a 1.5-meter wall surrounding the site to gather scrap iron and sell it on the market,” said Alavi.
“In fact, these people were thieves and not nuclear saboteurs and they were residents of the village near the power plant and they were repeat offenders,” the minister added.

Neither Alavi nor Salehi have specified where the nuclear facility in question was located.
