U.S. points to Israel behind drone attack in Iran

Washington, Jan 30 (Prensa Latina) US officials believe drone attacks at a military plant in Iran´s central city of Isfahan were conducted by Israel, according to US media reports.

The Wall Street Journal and the New York Times reported that Israel was behind the attacks, citing US officials and people familiar with the operation.

The New York Times cited senior intelligence officials who were familiar with the dialogue between Israel and the United States about the incident. None of the officials were named.

Meanwhile, CNN has not independently confirmed that information. A US Department of Defense spokesperson told CNN that the US has not conducted strikes or operations inside Iran.

“We’ve seen the press reports, but can confirm that no US military forces have conducted strikes or operations inside Iran. We continue to monitor the situation, but have nothing further to provide,” the spokesperson said.

According to an official statement released in Tehran, the attack took place at 10:30 p.m. local time Saturday. The plant is about 440 kilometers (270 miles) south of Tehran.

“There was an unsuccessful attack by small drones against a defense ministry industrial complex and fortunately with predictions and air defense arrangements already in place, one of them (struck).”

“The air defense system of the complex was able to destroy two other drones. Fortunately, this unsuccessful attack killed no one and minor damage was sustained to the roof of the complex.”

‘These blind actions will have no effect on the country’s progress,’ the Defense Ministry stressed.
