Iran points finger after drone strike

RT | February 2, 2023

The Iranian government suspects that Israel was responsible for last Saturday night’s attack on a military facility in the central city of Isfahan, news outlet ISNA reported on Thursday, citing a senior diplomat.

Amir Saeid Iravani, Tehran’s envoy to the UN, made the accusation in correspondence with senior officials at the organization, according to ISNA. In his letter, he reportedly stated that a preliminary investigation had pointed to Israel’s responsibility for the drone attack.

He condemned the incident and referred to statements by senior Israeli officials, including an interview with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on CNN earlier this week, in which he declined to confirm or deny Israel’s involvement in the Isfahan attack.

“Every time some explosion takes place in the Middle East, Israel is blamed or given responsibility – sometimes we are, sometimes we’re not,” the prime minister told the US news network.

In his letter, Iravani emphasized that Iran had a right to “decisively respond” to the threat posed by Israel with whatever means it deems necessary.

The Iranian diplomat also condemned a Ukrainian official for their remarks about the attack. Mikhail Podoliak, an aide to President Vladimir Zelensky, framed the incident as retaliation for what Kiev claims to be assistance provided by Iran to Russia in the conflict with Ukraine.

“War logic is inexorable and murderous. It bills the authors and accomplices strictly,” Podoliak said, adding that Ukraine “did warn you.”

Iravani reiterated that Iran was not involved in the Ukraine crisis and said any statements condoning attacks on Iranian infrastructure were “irresponsible.”

According to ISNA, Iranian specialists analyzed the debris of drones used in the attack and identified the producer. They reportedly found clues after comparing the aircrafts’ body, engines, power supply and navigation system to samples at their disposal.

The Iranian military will use the new information to improve security at its installations, the outlet said, citing a source close to the national security council.

The attack reportedly involved three small drones carrying explosives, which were launched from a nearby location. Iran said they were intercepted and caused only minor damage to the roof of the building that was targeted.

  1. Well, of course Israel and the United States attacked Iran. What other nations would have done that and what other nations were conducting a joint military operation?

    How the subservience to Israel ruins America is demonstrated over and over and over. If America would have worked its diplomacy to trade with Iran, which was open to that, how the oil would have benefited America and perhaps Europe as well. But, no. America is a ZCC, or a Zionist Conquered Country.

    If the Zionist partisans here and elsewhere, as in Europe, will have their way, to say such will be anti-semitic and will become a crime, will be established in a government and thus, the Zionist, the Zionist jews and their partisans will be able to have a government do their bidding. Ask Ursula Haverbeck. Julian Assange, you may wonder? Yes. He was trapped by two interviewers and Israel wanted to censor him. Ask Julian Assange, for Israel is part of the desire to crush any reporting as Wiki was capable of doing.

    What secret plot is afoot by Israel in the whole of this? Does it think it can gain control of Iran, along with its partner, America? Consider the “Greater Israel” plan. Consider the desire for the Ukraine, another “Israel”, as is a plot as well. Consider how Israel has captured the Golan Heights, its Genie Oil and Gas is developing the resources there. Consider how Israel is working to develop the natural resources off its coast, and how it will never, ever share that with the Palestinians, or maybe not even any of nations which border that.

    Look to how Israel’s genocide, a slow-moving, but according to their religious and political leaders, a god-given and god mandated goal.

    Israel is not an ally to America. It is the opposite.

  2. “He condemned the incident and referred to statements by senior Israeli officials, including an interview with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on CNN earlier this week, in which he declined to confirm or deny Israel’s involvement in the Isfahan attack”.

    When a criminal like Netanyahu “Declines to confirm or deny Israel’s involvement in the Isfahan attack”, you know for sure that He authorised it. He has been quoted before that Israel neither confirms or denies that it has Nuclear weapons, so “Neither confirms of denies means YES”.

    “Nutjobyahu” is a scumbag who’s word is worth NOTHING.
