Iran blames Israel for Isfahan drone attack, vows revenge

DUBAI, 03 January 2023, (TON): Iran blamed Israel for a drone attack on a military factory near the central city of Isfahan, the semi-official news agency said, vowing revenge for what appeared to be the latest episode in a long-running covert war.

The attack came amid tension between Iran and the West over Tehran’s nuclear activity and its supply of arms including long-range “suicide drones” for Russia’s war in Ukraine, as well as months of anti-government demonstrations at home.

In a letter to the UN chief, Iran’s UN envoy, Amir Saeid Iravani, said “primary investigation suggested Israel was responsible” for Saturday night’s attack, which Tehran had said caused no casualties or serious damage.
