Iran Threatens Israel After Unidentified Drone Strike on Military Facility Near Top Nuke Site
Iran could “take aim at Israeli tourists, officials, and embassies abroad.”
Iran has threatened Israel with “retaliatory” attacks following Sunday’s unidentified drone strike on an Iranian military factory. The strike, which according to Iranian state media, was carried out by several bomb-carrying drones, took place in Iran’s central province of Isfahan, home to the regime’s top nuclear weapons facility. Iran’s regime-run media downplayed the strike’s impact but admitted that it caused damage to the roof of a military factory.
The targeted “site was a weapons production facility for Iran’s killer Shahed-136 drones,” Israel’s Channel 12 news revealed. The Shahed-136 kamikaze drones are being used extensively against Ukrainian military and civilian infrastructure by Russian forces.
Iran’s central Isfahan province is home to several nuclear sites, including Natanz underground facility used for enriching weapons-grade uranium needed for a nuclear bomb.
In April 2021, a mysterious attack at Natanz nuclear enrichment facility destroyed thousands of brand-new advanced centrifuges. Iran blamed Israel for the mysterious incident which almost derailed its rogue nuke program.
PM Netanyahu: Sherriff Back in Town?
The Israeli news reports suggest that the strike on Iran’s military infrastructure, which comes exactly a month after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu returned to office, could result from a change of guard in Jerusalem.
“In his previous term, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered numerous strikes on Iranian targets in Syria and operations on Iranian soil,” The Times of Israel noted Monday. “He has been open about his intention to oppose Tehran’s nuclear aspirations at any cost, as Israel generally views an Iranian nuclear bomb as a near-existential threat.”

NYT, WSJ Reports Claims Israel Behind the Strike
U.S. media outlets, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal, quoted unnamed American officials saying Israel was behind the hit on the military facility in central Iran. Similar attacks on Iran’s military and nuclear weapons infrastructure in the past have been attributed to the Israeli intelligence agency Mossad.
The WSJ reported Sunday:
An Israeli drone strike inside Iran hit an advanced weapons-production facility in an attack that Israel believes achieved its goals, according to people familiar with discussions about the operation.
The operation early Sunday morning was executed by Israel’s intelligence agency, the Mossad, and targeted a Ministry of Defense site in Isfahan in central Iran, hitting a building in four different areas with precision strikes, the people said. Satellite photos showed what appeared to be minor damage to the site’s roof, but the people called the mission successful, without elaborating.
In keeping with their long-held tradition, Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and intelligence agencies di not comment on the incident.
Israel Readying for Iranian ‘Retaliatory” Attack
Israeli security forces are on high alert following Iranian threats. “Top security brass reportedly held several meetings over the past two days to discuss intelligence regarding possible Iranian retaliation to a drone strike early on Sunday targeting a major defense facility,” the Israeli TV channel i24news reported.
The Times of Israel disclosed the details of Israeli preparedness:
The security establishment on Monday was reportedly bracing for a retaliatory strike by Iran, following a series of attacks against Islamic Republic targets over the past several days that have been blamed on Israel.
The Kan public broadcaster reported Monday that security officials have held discussions over the past day to try to predict when and how Iran will respond to several strikes on convoys that reportedly were ferrying weapons and ammunition for Tehran-backed militias in Syria over the past 48 hours. (…)
In addition to retaliatory attacks against targets inside Israel, the security establishment was readying for the possibility that the Islamic Republic would take aim at Israeli tourists, officials, and embassies abroad, Kan reported without citing sources.

Yawn, another threat, another day
Iran and Palestine must go in the bins of history
Note to Russian client states: Now that Daddy Bear’s a bit tied up, the other kids you’ve been whacking may start poking back more.
we’re gonna need a new munition facility (said in the tone of “We’re gonna need a new timmy” from the Dinosaur muppet jim hen son series)
The only religion in the present that requires it adherents to murder non-adherents is Islam, and Iranian adherents use every last oil rial to kill as many Jews as possible.
Having determined that “never again” would they permit what the Germans did, present day Jews do whatever is necessary to deprive Iranian religious maniacs of the means to kill Jews.
My compliments to them.
It seems to me that it’s a bit more subtle than “kill as many Jews as possible.”
Imho they are very sophisticated , and adept, and ruthless, and ultimately effective in their use of killing. And threats.
And that’s why they:
1. Export to the West the children of their leaders at home — i e, it’s not to integrate
2. Look at how in just a generation or two the democrat party has become home to Jew blame for everything
3. And the most clever/cynical aspect is the oft-stated “Fewer people have been killed in America by ‘the people you claim are so violent’ … etc”
One has to give them credit. Like a really effective abusive spouse.
It is well known that a mere glance from across a room …. is enough to control what a victimized spouse will say. And how it will be said.
The other thing they have going for them is patience. And their imperviousness to public suffering amongst their own people, where they rule.

We of the West naively seem to imagine that “getting along with one another as co-equals” is how everybody wants to live.
Yes, the Iranians are subtle…and overtly violent.
Virtually all non-combatant deaths in Israel occur solely because of Iranian support of the local killers, e.g., Hamas, who essentially operate as Iranian proxies.
The Western press and academia screeches that any action by Hamas against Israeli non-combatants is “asymmetric” whereas any action by Israel against Hamas combatants is “disproportionate”.
To which, I say, bullshit.
2 years into obama’s third term and the world is on fire.
Israel will do whatever is necessary to protect itself and the Jewish People and the west from Iranian based terror whenever and however it deems it appropriate-with or without notifying Washington which dreams of appeasement of terror
