Israel hit the city of Isfahan in central Iran at 5am local time – the city hosts one of Iran’s nuclear facilities and the site is the eighth hunting base of the Army Air Force.

It is unclear what exact target was hit or the extent of the damage. 

IRNA, the Iranian state news outlet, said the nation’s air defense systems had been activated, but ‘so far, no large-scale strikes or explosions by any air threat have been reported.’  

No official comment has been released by either Israel, Iran or the US.  

Why Israel Strikes Back Iran?

It comes in response to Iran launching a barrage of hundreds of drones and rockets at Israel on Saturday, which was largely thwarted by Israel and its international allies. Isfahan was one of several launch sites used in the attack.

Israel Defy Joe Biden

Though Biden had warned Israel not to retaliate to Saturday’s strikes and urged Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to ‘take the win’ of the foiled Iranian attack, but seems Israel won’t take a ‘listen’.

Nevertheless, Israeli officials warned the Biden administration of its intent to strike before launching, but an official told CNN that the US did not ‘green light’ any Israeli response. 

Israeli military officials have reportedly stressed that today’s strikes were a ‘limited response’ to Iran’s attack, appearing to target military hubs used by Iran in their onslaught on Saturday.
