Drone attack on Iranian weapons factory was phenomenal success - sources

January 30, 2023

Despite Iranian claims, the drone attack on Iran at Isfahan was a tremendous success, according to a mix of Western intelligence sources and foreign sources, The Jerusalem Post has learned. Israel is playing the incident mum, but most Western intelligence and Iranian sources have credited the Mossad with similarly successful attacks against Iran's Natanz nuclear facility in July 2020, a different Natanz nuclear facility in April 2021, another nuclear facility at Karaj in June 2021 and with destroying around 120 or more Iranian drones in February 2022. There are also few organizations globally besides the Mossad which are reported to have the advanced and surgical strike capabilities displayed in the operation. Isfahan has been used on and off for various nuclear issues as well as non-nuclear military issues. Iran even at one point told the IAEA that some of the nuclear activities being carried out at the Karaj nuclear facility until June 2021 had been moved to Isfahan.
