Iran news agency reports explosions heard at Isfahan airport, says cause unknown

Iran’s Fars news agency says that explosions have been heard near the airport at the country’s central Isfahan city, but the reason is unknown.

“The cause of these sounds is still unknown, and investigations continue until the exact details of the incident are determined,” the semi-official Fars news agency says.

Several Iranian nuclear sites are located in Isfahan province, including Natanz, the centerpiece of Iran’s uranium enrichment program.

According to CNN, several flights have been diverted over Iranian airspace.

The reports come days after Iran launched hundreds of drones and missiles in a retaliatory attack after a suspected Israeli strike on its embassy compound in Syria killed several Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps officers, including two generals.

Most of the drones and missiles were downed before reaching Israel, which has vowed to respond to the Iranian attack.
