Israeli drones reportedly attacked a military compound in Iran, according to The Wall Street Journal, citing unnamed U.S. officials who allegedly knew of the military operation.
Three compact quad-copters reportedly struck a munitions factory in the Iranian city of Isfahan. The target is next to a site connected to the Iranian Space Research Center, which Washington sanctioned after it started developing Tehran’s ballistic missile program.

The drone strike comes amid growing tensions between the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Western world. With a new Iranian nuclear agreement increasingly unlikely, Washington and its allies are looking into alternative ways to prevent Iran’s military expansion and development of a nuclear bomb.
Iranian officials initially downplayed the drone strike, claiming that its air defenses had succeeded in neutralizing the drones with only minor damage done to the roof of the site.
“At around 23:30, an unsuccessful attack using micro-aerial vehicles was carried out on one of the Defense Ministry’s workshops,” said a statement by the Iranian Defense Ministry.
However, images on social media show that the drones caused a significant explosion at the site.
Later, Iran’s Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian condemned the drone attack as a “cowardly strike.”
“Such actions cannot impact the determination and intent of our experts for peaceful nuclear progress,” Amir-Abdollahian said, according to the regime-controlled news outlet PadDolat.
The sharp statement by Tehran’s top diplomat could be interpreted as an indirect admission of significant damages at the military site. The Israeli government followed Jerusalem’s long-held policy to neither confirm nor deny Israeli involvement in the strike.
The Iranian regime regularly claims that its nuclear research is merely for peaceful purposes. However, few observers in the West or the Middle East believe the regime, which has a long history of false propaganda claims.
