Officials: No Missile Attack Against Iran, Explosion Due to Air Defence System Activation

Explosions heard in Isfahan were a result of the activation of Iran’s air defence systems, an Iranian official told Reuters on Friday, adding that no missile attack was carried out against Iran.


However, a senior US official told CNN that Israel has carried out a strike inside Iran. The attack came just hours after Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian told CNN in an interview that if Israel takes any further military action against it would be “immediate and at a maximum level.”

The Prime Minister’s Office refuses to confirm to The Times of Israel that Israel is behind explosions in Isfahan. Iranian state media confirmed that air defence systems intercepted drones in Isfahan province and neutralising them effectively. Also, there were reports of air defense operations near Tabriz.


Israel’s military refused to comment on the reports that Israeli missiles hit a site in Iran. The Israeli military told the AFP that “we don’t have a comment at this time” when asked about reports of explosions and strikes in Iran and Syria.


Following reports of explosions near a significant airbase near Isfahan, Iranian state media announced the activation of air defense systems, leading to the interception of drones in the province. Isfahan is home to several sites associated with Iran’s nuclear program, such as the Natanz enrichment site. State television affirmed the security of all facilities in the region to viewers.
