Hours after Israel reportedly launched attack on Iranian soil, a senior Iranian official told that Iran has no plan for immediate retaliation against Israel.
"The foreign source of the incident has not been confirmed. We have not received any external attack, and the discussion leans more towards infiltration than attack," the Iranian official told Reuters on condition of anonymity.
In a further escalation of the Middle East conflict, earlier today Israel reportedly launched a counterattack on Iran. Explosions were heard in the city of Isfahan where Iran's largest registered nuclear research complex is located. Iran's state-aligned Tasnim news confirmed that the nuclear facilities remain "completely secure." Sources have told Times Now that the Iranian Army's radar in Isfahan was one of the possible targets of the early Friday attack.
Israel and Iran have not confirmed the strikes. An Iranian official denied reports of an Israel attack, telling Reuters that the explosions were "a result of the activation of Iran's air defence systems" in response to drones.
Notably, Israel had, on Thursday, informed the US about their plans to attack Iran. However, the US is not endorsing the Israeli response to Iran’s weekend attack. The attack against Iran was "limited" and was in retaliation for Tehran's weekend attack on Israel.

Iran activated its air defence system amid reports of missile and drone strikes by Israel. Local media reported a loud explosion in Isfahan following Israeli missile fire at an Iranian airport, according to ABC News citing a US official.
Iran has successfully intercepted all Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) approaching its territory, according to official sources. As of now, there have been no reports of a missile attack or any damage to airbases or military installations.
The activation of Iran's Air Defence systems in various cities has led to the closure of airports as a precautionary measure. Tehran's Imam Khomeini International Airport, among others, has suspended all flights in response to the heightened security situation.
The strikes come in retaliation for Iran's launch of hundreds of drones and rockets at Tel Aviv, mostly thwarted by Israel and its allies, after which the Biden administration called for de-escalation.
Earlier this month, an alleged Israeli strike in Damascus killed several officials, including three Iranian generals.
