Report: Israel Strikes Iran Near Nuclear Sites

Reports emerged early Friday morning, April 19, that Israel had attacked several Iranian sites — including targets near the suspected locations of Iran’s nuclear facilities.

Israel’s Army media reported at 5:00 a.m. local time that American media had identified Israeli strikes near the town of Isfahan, Iran, as well as in locations in Syria and Iraq. Reports had claimed on Wednesday that Iran has allegedly removed senior Hezbollah and IRGC members from Syria, in fear of a potential Israeli retaliation.

Another Israeli news agency reported that semi-official Iranian media say that explosions have been heard near the airport at the country’s central Isfahan city, but that the reason is unknown. Isfahan, however, is known to be home to Iran’s fleet of American-made F-14 Tomcats — purchased before the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

The Israeli strikes apparently came in response to a massive Iranian missile and drone attack on Israel over the weekend. Though Israeli and allied air defenses largely intercepted the attack, it marked the first such direct attack by Iran against Israel from Iranian territory.

Israel gave no official comment and there has been no change to the IDF Home Front Command’s instruction to civilians. IRGC put all bases on high alert and the Iranian National Security Council was called for an urgent consultation. One Iranian government official suggested sites may have been targeted by drones launched from within Iranian territory and not missiles. (BB / VFI News)

“Our Heavenly Father, we pray for peace and an end to all hostilities in the Middle East, in Yeshua’s name. May You dismantle the Iranian authoritarian regime and put righteous leaders to govern it, who will abandon the current dangerous nuclear program and will seek peace with our country, as well as all their other neighbors. We ask for protection over the civilians in Israel and that no evil intent will come to fruition. In Yeshua’s name.”
