Israel carried out drone attack on Iranian defense facility — WSJ

Israel was behind a drone attack that struck a defense facility in the Iranian city of Isfahan, the Wall Street Journal reports, citing US officials and people familiar with the matter.

The American newspaper says the strike was the first to be carried out by Israel since Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu returned last month, adding it comes amid talks between Jerusalem and Washington on new ways to counter Tehran.

The report also says the drones targeted a munitions factory next to a facility belonging to the Iran Space Research Center, which is under US sanctions for its alleged work on ballistic missiles.
