Israel Reportedly Carries Out Drone Strikes On Iranian Factory

On Sunday, Tehran claimed that drones had attacked a military facility in the central Iranian city of Isfahan.

Mohammad Reza Jan-Nesari, the deputy head of security for the Isfahan governorate, told the semi-official Fars News Agency that an explosion had taken place in a military center affiliated with the Ministry of Defense.

Damage was done, but thankfully no one was hurt, according to Jan-Nesari.

Some time after the blast, state-run IRNA reported that “small drones” were to blame.

According to a tweet by IRNA, citing the country’s defense ministry, “there was an unsuccessful attack by small drones against a defense ministry industrial complex and fortunately with predictions and air defense arrangements already in place, one of them (struck).

There were two other drones, but the complex’s air defenses shot them down. Thankfully, no lives were lost in this failed attack, and only minor damage was done to the complex’s roof.

The attack, according to the ministry, occurred at 10:30 p.m. local time.

About 270 nautical miles (440 kilometers) south of Tehran is where you’ll find the plant.

In July of 2020, a fire ripped through the Iranian Natanz nuclear complex in Isfahan Province, south of Tehran. This was a crucial site in Iran’s uranium enrichment program. According to Iran’s Supreme National Security Council, authorities in that country have decided against making public their investigation’s conclusions regarding the fire’s origins out of security concerns.

The following year, on the celebration of National Nuclear Day, Natanz experienced a blackout, which was deemed a “terrorist action” by Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization (AEOI). Israeli army chief appeared to suggest Israeli involvement.

In October of this year (2019), two missiles struck a tanker belonging to Iran’s state-owned National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC), causing it to take on water. At first, a representative from the National Iranian Tanker Company speculated that it had been fired from Saudi territory. However, this theory was later discredited, and the Iranian government offered no other explanation.

Earlier that year, at least 23 people were killed and 17 others were injured when an explosives-laden truck plowed into a bus transporting members of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard in the southeastern province of Sistan-Baluchestan. Those responsible for the suicide attack were identified as members of the separatist group Jaish al-Adl, also known as the Army of Justice.
