Drones were used in the attempted attack on an Iranian nuclear facility, according to Channel 13.
The targeted facility, a sprawling nuclear center located in Karaj city, just some 40 kilometers (25 miles) northwest of Tehran, was manufacturing parts used in centrifuges, according to the network, which cites Iranian sources.
The television report doesn’t say who is responsible for the strike or specify on the extent of the damage.
Iran state television earlier said a “sabotage operation against one of the buildings (of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran) was foiled” without causing any casualties or damage. “The saboteurs failed to carry out their plan,” the broadcaster added, without identifying the building or the nature of the attack that had been averted.
Israel, which has vowed to prevent Iran from attaining nuclear weapons, had no official comment on the Iranian reports Wednesday.
