Israeli missile has struck Iran, explosions were reported in Isfahan

Iranian state media said the country's air defences shot down three drones over Ifsahan.
 Isfahan is home to an Iranian air base and the province has several military sites.

Iran’s state broadcaster IRIB is citing “reliable sources” as saying that the nuclear facilities in Isfahan are “completely safe”.

In the hours preceding today’s reports, Iran’s Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian warned that his country's response to any retaliation by Israel would be “immediate and at a maximum level".

US officials have told CBS, the BBC's US partner, that an Israeli missile has struck Iran, but the scale of any strike, the exact target, and whether its target was hit remains unclear.

Global oil and gold prices have jumped and shares slumped after US officials said an Israeli missile had struck Iran.


  1. Iran’s state news agency, IRNA, reports that flights have resumed at Tehran’s Imam Khomeini International Airport.

    Flights were earlier suspended across much of Iran as explosions were reported in the central province of Isfahan.

    "We didn't endorse the response," the official said, adding that Israel had told Washington that it would be retaliating "in the coming days."

    According to Bloomberg, Israel informed the United States on Thursday about its plans to strike Iran within the next 24-48 hours.

  4. CNN quoted an official as saying the target of the Israeli attack was not nuclear.

  5. Iranian media said Friday there was "no major damage" reported after explosions were heard near the central city of Isfahan.

    "Reports indicate there was no major damage or large explosions caused by the impact of any air threat," the official IRNA news agency said.

  6. Iran said Friday it shot down several drones and that there had been "no missile attack for now" on the country, after explosions were heard near the central city of Isfahan.

    A blast in Iran's Isfahan was heard near the airport and the 8th Army Air Force Base, Iran's Fars news agency said.

  8. The report said a loud explosion heard in several provinces of Iran was caused by the activation of air defense systems to intercept several small unidentified UAVs.
    Iranian air defenses reportedly shot down several drones over the Isfahan province in central Iran.

  9. No foreign attack on Iranian cities including Isfahan took place, an “informed source” told Iran’s Press TV on Friday, as Isfahan’s air defense systems were activated to intercept suspected drones earlier in the day.
