The attempted attack on an Iranian nuclear site outside Tehran that was reported on Wednesday targeted a facility used in the construction of centrifuges needed to enrich uranium, Iranian opposition sources said.

Despite official Iranian claims to the contrary, the strike caused damage to the facility, according to unsourced reports in Hebrew media on Wednesday evening. They could not be independently confirmed immediately.

The attack was reportedly conducted with small drones. That too could not be immediately confirmed.

Iran did not identify who was behind the attack. It has accused Israel of conducting similar strikes on its nuclear facilities in recent years.

According to official Iranian media, the target of Wednesday’s strike was a facility that belongs to Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization in the city of Karaj, northwest of Tehran, known as the Karaj Agricultural and Medical Research Center.

Iranian state media maintained that the attack had failed and “left no casualties or damages and was unable to disrupt the Iranian nuclear program.”
