i24 NewsIsrael carried out Saturday’s drone strike targeting a defense compound in Iran, according to a report by the Wall Street Journal on Sunday citing US officials and “people familiar with the operation.”

The attack targeted a facility in the central Isfahan province used for storing ballistic missiles.

Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian called the blast a cowardly strike.

The state-run IRNA news agency later described the drones as “quadcopters equipped with bomblets.”

Tehran has repeatedly claimed its facilities were targeted by Israel in a so-called shadow war with the Jewish state, as the nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers collapsed.
