Earlier this week it was reported that the city of Isfahan in Iran, had been under attack. On the same day, Saudi Arabia reported that the U.S. had hit Iran, but as I wrote at the time, this was an extraordinary report, so we had to wait for more information to verify or deny it. In fact, a lot of incoming information denied the report.
The U.S. officials sent a report to at least three major media outlets-the New York Times, Reuters, and the Wall Street Journal, according to which Israel launched attacks on Iran amid the international effort to contain Tehran.
According to these reports, it seems that this was a very important strategic facility, obviously related to missile developments. This doesn’t seem to be an ammo warehouse, and it is unlikely that it was a typical missile warehouse, since there were no secondary explosions and the intensity of detonation was rather low. So it seems reasonable to assume that it was a facility for the development of hypersonic weapons or drones.
According to U.S. officials and people that are acquainted with the operation, Israel launched a drone strike against a military complex in Iran since the United States and Israel are pushing for new ways to contain Tehran’s nuclear and military ambitions.
Iranian officials said that the country’s air defense forces defended Iran against an attempted strike of three small quadcopters on a munitions factory in Isfahan city, near a facility owned by the Iranian Space Research Center, which has been sanctioned by the United States for its activities in developing Iran’s ballistic missile program.
This evaluation of the situation corresponds well with Netanyahu’s today’s statement that Israel will not allow Iran to develop any nuclear weapons as well as any launching capabilities, a clear indication of Israeli activities against Iranian missiles.
Iran has already threatened to respond, and this, also on the background of successful attacks on two convoys of trucks from Iran that were carrying weapons and ammunition (possibly missiles or drones) to Syria. Israel is well prepared against Iran and at the same time strikes the facilities and important bases in Iran itself.
To sum up: according to US information, it was Israel that struck and probably successfully hit a missile or drone development facility and destroyed two weapons convoys.
