Iranian president hails Tehran’s attack on Israel, fails to mention reported strike on Isfahan

Iran’s President Ebrahim Raisi hails Tehran’s unprecedented retaliatory attack on Israel almost a week ago, but fails to mention explosions heard in his country’s central region hours earlier.

That operation “showed our authority, our people’s will of steel and our unity,” Raisi tells hundreds of people in Semnan province, east of Tehran.

In the speech, he makes no reference to the blasts, and there has been no official reaction either from Iranian or Israeli officials.

State media says the blasts resounded early this morning in the central province of Isfahan.
