Israel targeted air defense system for Iran nuclear site – ABC News

Israel targeted the defense system of the Natanz nuclear facility in Iran during its strike Friday morning, ABC quoted a senior American official as saying.

The Israelis were targeting an air defense radar site near Isfahan that’s part of the protection of the Natanz nuclear facility,” ABC said, in the name of the official. 

“The first assessment is that the strike took out the site, but assessment hasn’t been completed, the official said.”

The attack, which Israel has not claimed credit for, was launched in response to the aerial barrage of ballistic missiles and attack drones that Iran sent to Israel last Saturday night following an airstrike in Damascus, widely attributed to Israel, that killed a senior commander in Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC).
