Photos on social media claim to show shrapnel from Israeli weapons found in Baghdad

Hours after a reported Israeli strike on an Iranian military site, photos circulate on social media purporting to show shrapnel from “Israeli armaments” found near the Iraqi capital city of Baghdad.

Explosions were heard near the Iranian city of Isfahan early this morning as Israel reportedly launched a heavily anticipated reprisal strike for an Iranian attack on Israel days earlier, defying international pressure to stand down.

There was no official confirmation of a strike from Israeli authorities.

State-run media in Iran reported only that air defenses were activated, downplaying claims of an attack on a military site in the city some 315 kilometers (196 miles) south of Tehran and describing the incident as business-as-usual.
