Military plant in Iran hit by drone strikes


YEREVAN, JANUARY 29, ARTSAKHPRESS. Drones attacked a military plant in Iran’s central city of Isfahan, local media reported. 

The Iranian military’s air defense units repelled the drone attack, Press TV reported citing a statement from the Iranian Ministry of Defense.

The ministry said one of its workshop complexes had come under attack from a number of Micro Aerial Vehicles (MAVs), but the complex’s air defenses successfully repelled the attack.

“One of the MAVs was downed by the complex’s air defense fire, while the other two were caught in its defensive traps and exploded,” Press TV quoted the Ministry of Defense as saying in the statement.

The ministry noted that the unsuccessful attack did not cause any loss of life and only led to minor damage to the roof of a workshop. The complex, it added, continues its operations following the attack.

The attack happened 23:30, January 28.

After the incident, the Iranian Fars news agency reported that a massive fire broke out at an oil refinery in the northwestern Iranian city of Tavriz. It wasn’t immediately clear whether or not the two incidents were related.
