Situation normal after air defenses fire at suspicious objects in Iran

The sound of explosions have been heard near the central Iranian city of Isfahan and Tabriz in the country's northwest after air defense systems fired at "suspicious objects" early Friday.

Officials said important facilities in the Isfahan province, especially nuclear facilities, are completely safe and no incidents have been reported.

“The sound was related to Isfahan’s air defense systems firing at suspicious objects and we have not had any damage or accident,” Brigadier Siavash Mihandoust, senior Army commander in Isfahan province, said Friday.

Space agency spokesman Hossein Dalirian said several drones “have been successfully shot down by the country’s air defense, and that there had been “no missile attack for now” on the country.

“No foreign aerial attack has been carried out so far against Isfahan or other areas of the country,” he wrote in a post on his account on X on Friday morning.

There were just “failed and humiliated” efforts to fly quadcopters which were downed, Dalirian said.

The Iran Airports and Air Navigation Company said normal operations have resumed for flights at Iranian airports including Imam Khomeini International Airport and Mehrabad International Airport in Tehran after temporary delays.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) announced in a Friday post on X that Iran’s nuclear facilities were safe.
