According to The Iran Project,Major General Abdolrahim Mousavi said more details will be released by the relevant authorities in the coming hours.

U.S. media have quoted anonymous American officials as saying that Israel has launched an attack on the Iranian territory. Some Israeli mouthpieces have also reported that an Iranian Army airbase known as the 8th Tactical Air Base has been targeted. Israeli officials have yet to make any comments.

Footage taken by civilians shows unidentified objects getting intercepted in the air. No explosion or damage has been recorded on the ground. Reports by Iranian media also show that cities across Isfahan Province are in a normal situation, with people carrying on with their daily lives.

Earlier General Siavash Mihandoost, the Army’s senior official in Isfahan province, said the relatively loud sound of the explosion that was heard in the eastern parts of Isfahan on Friday morning was the result of shots fired at “suspicious” objects by the air defense units, Tasnim reported.

He said there have been no damages or specific incidents.

"The sound was related to Isfahan's air defense systems firing at suspicious objects and we have not had any damage or accident," Mihandoust said.

Officials also said important facilities in Isfahan province, especially nuclear sites, are completely safe. 

In recent days, the Zionist regime has ratcheted up the rhetoric of military action against Iran after the Islamic Republic carried out a retaliatory operation against the Israeli military installations in response to an Israeli airstrike on the Iranian consulate in Damascus on April 1 that killed seven Iranian military advisors.

Under Article 51 of the UN Charter, the attack on Iran’s diplomatic premise in Syria was considered an attack on Iran’s territory.
