‘Like Toys, Not Drones’: Iran Continues Mocking Israel’s Attack As Contrasting Narratives Emerge

Iran has continued mocking Israel’s limited attack, which happened in the early hours of Friday morning. In a fresh interview with sources, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian dismissed much of the initial reporting in the West concerning the strike, which appeared to centre on the city of Isfahan – which hosts a nuclear energy site – as “not accurate.”

“What happened last night was not a strike,” the Iranian top diplomat asserted. He claimed that the attack involved merely two or three small UAVs, which “were more like toys that our children play with, not drones.”

He said that the UAV’s were all taken out by Iran’s anti-air defences and even claimed they took off from inside Iran, suggesting that the attack took place by proxy.

Iranian state TV had reported shortly after midnight, as the attack was unfolding, that “three drones were observed in the sky over Isfahan. The air defence system became active and destroyed these drones in the sky.”

However, Israeli media, along with the New York Times, are saying the whole thing was meant as a strong symbolic message to Iran that Israel can inflict severe damage at will if it chooses to.
