Iran’s Defense Ministry announced on Sunday that its air defense units had foiled an attack by unmanned aerial vehicles (known as MAVs) on a military workshop in the central city of Isfahan.
The ministry made the announcement after an explosion was reported at one of Isfahan’s defense industry complexes on Sunday morning.
The military agency indicated that one of its workshop complexes was attacked by several Micro Air Vehicles (MAV) – a small unmanned aerial vehicle – but the complex’s air defenses successfully repelled the attack.
Iran’s Defense Ministry said one of its workshop complexes in Isfahan came under attack by 3 micro aerial vehicles, but its air defenses successfully repulsed them.

“One of the MAVs was shot down by air defense fire from the compound, while the other two were hit by their defensive traps and exploded,” the statement added.
The failed attack caused no casualties and only minor damage to the roof of a workshop, the agency said. The complex continues with its normal operations after the attack.
The ministry assured the Iranian nation that such indiscriminate attacks will not have any effect on the country’s overall journey towards progress.
