Drone strike hits Iran munitions factory

Drone strike hits Iran munitions factory

A military factory in Iran has been attacked by drones, the Iranian news agency reports, after a powerful explosion.

Emergency vehicles and fire trucks showed up at the factory in the central province of Isfahan. It comes amid tensions over Iran's nuclear program, as well as Russia's supply of Shahed drones that have been used in the war against Ukraine.

Some reports said that several objects were hit around Iran within a period of several hours. The Guardian has not confirmed these reports, but the Iranian news agency IRNA reported a fire at an oil refinery in the northern city of Tabriz, saying one person was injured.

Iran's defense ministry claimed the drone attack was unsuccessful, after it was shot down by air defenses.

The deputy governor of Isfahan province, Mohammad Reza Jan-Nesari, said on television that there were no casualties from the attack there, adding that the cause of the incident was under investigation.

Authorities did not provide details on the activities at the target site, north of the city of Isfahan.
