Israel strikes Iran

| April 19, 2024

Israel conducted a limited strike within Iran. Explosions have been reported in Iran’s Isfahan province, the location of one of Iran’s nuclear facilities. In the aftermath of the attack, the Iranians claimed that the strikes did not hit their atomic site. This was later confirmed by the International Atomic Energy Agency. The Iranians claimed that the sounds of explosions in the targeted area involved air defense systems targeting a suspicious object.

From Fox News:

1. Where did the strike hit?

Fox News confirmed there have been explosions in Iran’s Isfahan province, which is where Natanz, one of Iran’s nuclear facilities, is located.

A well-placed military source has told Fox News that the strike was “limited.”

2. How much damage did the attack cause?

Following the attack, Iranian state media stated that the nation’s atomic sites were “fully safe” and had not been struck by the missiles.

The International Atomic Energy Agency, a United Nations affiliate watchdog organization, later confirmed “there is no damage to Iran’s nuclear sites.”

There have been no reports of large-scale damage or casualties.

3. How will Iran respond?

A senior Iranian official reportedly told Reuters on Friday that Tehran has no immediate plans to strike back.

That official said “the foreign source of the incident has not been confirmed,” and “the discussion leans more towards infiltration than attack.”

Iranian state media reportedly has been downplaying Friday’s strikes. A well-placed military source has told Fox News that the strikes were “limited.”

“The explosion this morning in the sky of Isfahan was related to the shooting of air defense systems at a suspicious object that did not cause any damage,” Iranian army commander Gen. Abdolrahim Mousavi was quoted by The Associated Press as saying.

Israel should’ve hit the Iranian ballistic missile production facility or such hardware on a military site and called it a day.


Maverick would have leveled the place

You may be flying into a danger zone. Check 6, lest you get put on ice, man!

Maybe they’re saving that for the grand finale. Like 4th of July displays.


Good thing that the Bad Orange Man wasn’t (s)elected as prezzy…we’d find ourselves in the midst of wars and rumors of wars all over the world. Oh…wait


Mentioned to a friend that I imagine a conversation like “Damnit, you are pushing us to nuclear war!”
“What, you started it!”
“Well, if we don’t do something intelligent we will ALL go to meet our God sooner than later”
“OK, we’ll do a softball strike on you, then you do a return strike on is. Keep the casualties down and it’s no harm no foul” “Deal.”

That’s what it sounds like to me.
A face-saving non-destructive “strike”.
(what’d Israel do? Blow up some desert sand?)


I think Israel was letting the Iranian’s know that there is no way to stop Israeli missiles. Like what Israel just did to Iran’s missiles.
