Reuters reports Israel initiated the missile attack.

"A targeted strike damaged several buildings in a densely populated area near Umayyad Square in the center of the capital, where guarded high-rise buildings are located in residential areas", journalists state.

Last summer, the Israel Defense Forces launched a missile attack and destroyed an Iranian enterprise in the suburbs of Damascus, which is engaged in the assembly of UAVs.

Rubryka reported that on the night of January 29, a series of powerful explosions occurred at military infrastructure facilities in Iran.

Kamikaze drones attacked several military facilities. According to unofficial data, explosions also rang out at the Shahed drone factory.

According to a new investigative CNN report, Iran appears to be modifying the attack drones it's providing to Russia so that the explosive warheads can inflict maximum damage on infrastructure targets inside Ukraine.

Currently no country or terrorist organization has claimed responsibility for its actions. However, the Iranian side accused Israel of attacking a military facility.
