A military factory was targeted in Isfahan last night, after the Iranian army said the attack was carried out by three drones, one of which was blown up by an anti-missile system and the other two drones were caught by the defence system.
The Iranian army described the attack as “unsuccessful”, and stated that “The attack did not cause any damage to the institutions and activities of the community”.
“People were somewhat worried at first, but they were quickly informed that only the roof of one of the halls was slightly damaged.
There were no casualties and the community is continuing to work with all its strength,” Isfahan Deputy Governor Mohammad Reza Jan Nsari said.
According to reports, military and security forces closed the streets near the blast and did not allow people to travel there.
Last night, a huge fire broke out in the industrial town of Tehran. Mohammad Baqir Honarbar, director of crisis control in Tehran province, said an engine oil factory had caught fire but did not say what caused the fire.
Iran’s nuclear and military facilities have been targeted many times in the past and Israel has been accused of carrying them out. But Israeli officials have not acknowledged the attacks.
Iran is the only country in the region with a nuclear program, saying its nuclear programs are peaceful, but Western countries are sceptical.
