Iran's Defense Ministry said that one of its factories was attacked by drones in the central city of Isfahan. A statement carried by the state-run IRNA news agency says the attack occurred late Saturday and caused minor damage to a rooftop. The report said three drones were shot down by Iranian air defences.
According to Iran’s Defense Ministry, drones struck one of the country’s industries in the central city of Isfahan. According to a statement published by the government-run IRNA news agency, the strike happened late on Saturday and just slightly damaged a rooftop. According to the report, Iranian air defences shot down three drones.
Who was accused of carrying out the attack was not disclosed by the government. Over the past ten years, Iran and Israel have been fighting a secret war that has seen covert attacks against Iranian military and nuclear installations. An engineer was reportedly killed and another employee was injured at the Parchin military and weapons development base east of Tehran last year, according to Iran. The ministry referred to it as an accident without giving any other information.
Iran Reports Drone Attacks
The International Atomic Energy Agency has stated that it believes Iran tested explosive triggers that might be used in nuclear bombs at a military installation in Parchin.
As information on the incident was still scant in 2021, Iranian authorities claimed to have prevented a “sabotage strike” on a civilian nuclear site close to the nation’s capital.
According to them, the attempted strike on an Iranian nuclear programme building “caused no casualties or damage and was unable to impair the Iranian nuclear programme.”
Iran claims a drone attack targeted an Isfahan-based defence installation.
