During the air attack on Iran last night, the Israeli army damaged a radar system near the airport in the city of Isfahan, according to The Times of Israel.

The agency obtained satellite images documenting the damage after the Israeli strike in this area overnight.

Additional synthetic aperture radar (SAR) satellite images also indicate that the target of the strike was a radar station near Isfahan Airport.

The SAR radar images from Umbra, obtained at 0648Z on April 19, 2024, show damage to the Iranian Strategic SAM battery of S-300PMU2 in Isfahan since April 15, 2024. The images reveal the damaged target acquisition radar 30N6E, which remains on the radar's stationary mount.

Meanwhile, other components of the battery system were removed from the site. Their status and whereabouts are currently unknown. A high-ranking U.S. military source told FOX News that the Israelis hit what they intended to hit.

Israeli attack on Iran

On the night of April 14, Iran launched a massive attack on Israel with drones and missiles. The targets were launched from Iranian territory and proxies of the Iranian regime from Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and Yemen. Most of the missiles and drones were successfully intercepted by Israeli air defense forces.

The attack was in response to Israel's strike on the Iranian consulate in Damascus on April 1, which resulted in the deaths of several Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps generals.

On the morning of April 19, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) launched an airstrike on Iran in response to the massive attack. The IDF struck with missiles and drones at a military base near the city of Isfahan.

According to ABC News, the likely Israeli strike near Isfahan targeted a radar system that was part of the Iranian nuclear site's air defense system in Natanz.

The US did not support Israel's plans to strike Iran in response to the recent heavy bombardment.

The White House and the State Department declined to comment on Israel's missile attack on Iran.
