The highly anticipated response by Israel over Iran’s recent bombing of Israel with over 300 attack drones and missiles, which resulted in zero deaths and only some damage on a desert military base, was reported as being launched by Israel into Iran yesterday (April 19th).

In the days leading up to this alleged “attack,” the debate among the Israeli military was whether or not this attack should be “hard” in “revenge”, or limited in scope to “avoid escalation” in the region.

Here is how CBS News reported the “attacks” as they were allegedly happening:

Two U.S. officials confirm to CBS News that an Israeli missile has hit Iran. The strike follows last weekend’s retaliatory drone and missile attack against Israel, which Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed to respond to.

This was happening very late Thursday night (April 18th) in the U.S., when it was April 19th in Iran and Israel.

I saw these headlines just before I went to bed Thursday night.

The next morning, more details began to emerge, and it was reported that the alleged attacks were in the city of Isfahan, where Iran reportedly had nuclear facilities.

As more and more details emerged, the U.S. media was reporting that the “attacks” actually came from within Iran, and were not in fact “missiles”, but “drones.”

So I went to the Iranian English News site,, and they were reporting that there were no airstrikes at all.

Exclusive: Sources Reject Rumors about Attack on Iran

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – There are no reports of an attack from abroad against Isfahan or any other part of Iran, informed sources told Tasnim on Friday.

The informed sources told Tasnim that contrary to the rumors and claims made by the Israeli media on Friday morning, there are no reports of an attack from abroad on Iran’s central city of Isfahan or any other part of the country.

“Air defense units were activated in some places such as Isfahan and Tabriz, but that measures were due to the high sensitivity of the air defense systems due to the current situation and the ‘possibility’ of detecting some small drones,” sources underlined.

Also, informed sources told Tasnim that despite the rumors, until now there is no report that a big explosion occurred in Isfahan or possible missile attack.

The nuclear facility in Isfahan province is also completely safe and the report of some foreign media about incidents in Isfahan facility is incorrect. (Source.)

Later in the day the Iranian press updated their news to report that there actually were some  “suspicious” objects that were sighted:

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The Iranian Army said the sound of an explosion that was heard in the central city of Isfahan on Friday morning was caused by the air defense shots, giving an assurance that it has caused no damages or casualties.

In remarks on Friday, the Army’s senior representative in Isfahan said the relatively loud sound of explosion that was heard in the eastern parts of Isfahan this morning was the result of shots fired at “suspicious” objects by the air defense units.

General Mihandoost soothed concerns about the sound of explosion, saying there has been no damages or specific incident. (Source.)

As the day progressed, the Iranian media began to mock the Western media, showing people in Isfahan allegedly going about their business as if nothing had happened.

Calm Prevails in Iran’s Isfahan, People Mock Report of Israeli Attack

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – People of Isfahan in Iran are enjoying a beautiful morning as full security and calm prevail in the city following media rumors that the Zionist regime has attacked the central province, the home to a number of Iranian nuclear facilities.

Speculation ran rampant on Friday morning that the Israeli regime has attacked a number of sites in Isfahan after a series of explosions were heard in the province.

The officials denied the rumor immediately afterwards, saying the air defense units have gone into firing mode because of the high sensitivity of the air defense facilities in the current situation and “probably” because a number of micro aerial vehicles (MAVs) have been detected.

Tasnim’s reporter toured Isfahan on Friday morning, observing that everything is in the ordinary way at all civilian and military centers.

The situation is normal at the military air base and the airport of Isfahan, Tasnim learnt.

People have gone to the parks to enjoy a sunny spring morning, some have queued to buy Halim (a traditional Iranian broth eaten for breakfast), and many are making jokes about an Israeli attack.

In recent days, the Zionist regime has ratcheted up the rhetoric of military action against Iran after Tehran carried out a retaliatory operation against the Israeli military targets inside the occupied territories in response to a fatal airstrike that Israel launched on the consular section of the Iranian embassy in Damascus on April 1. (Source.)

Also, Iran’s foreign minister, Hossein Amirabdollahian, addressed the ambassadors of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) member states in New York on Friday, and reported also that what was shot down in Iran were “micro aerial vehicles” (MAVs).

Here is the description of MAVs on Wikipeida (emphasis mine):

A micro air vehicle (MAV), or micro aerial vehicle, is a class of man-portable miniature UAVs whose size enables them to be used in low-altitude, close-in support operations.

Modern MAVs can be as small as 5 centimeters – compare Nano Air Vehicle.

Development is driven by commercial, research, government, and military organizations; with insect-sized aircraft reportedly expected in the future.

The small craft allow remote observation of hazardous environments or of areas inaccessible to ground vehicles.

Hobbyists have designed MAVs for applications such as aerial robotics contests and aerial photography. MAVs can offer autonomous modes of flight. (Source.)

In other words, mosquito sized “drones” cannot drop bombs, or anything else for that matter.

Next, I decided to check the Israeli English News websites to get the Israeli side.

Unfortunately, there was none. Every single Israeli English News site I went to was only reporting what the U.S. media was reporting, such as CBS, the New York Times, etc.

There was literally nothing reported from Israeli military officials or politicians.

I wish I had taken some screenshots yesterday, as the corporate media is quickly scrambling to seemingly try to explain all this, with many of the initial news reports seeming to disappear, but here is one:

This is just the usual corporate media propaganda B.S. citing unnamed “officials”.

There was one report of a Zionist Israeli official commenting, however, as reported by Kyle Anzalone of

Israeli Security Chief Slams ‘Lame’ Attack on Iran

Israel’s National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir has mocked an Israeli attack on Iran as “lame,” after Tehran thwarted a small IDF drone strike early on Friday.

Ben Gvir, who leads the ultranationalist Jewish Power party, made a one-word post on X following the Israeli attack. Written in Hebrew, the Telegraph explained that the post used a “slang word that literally translates as ‘scarecrow’ but also means ‘lame.’” Reuters translated the word to “feeble.”

The post highlighted a public rift within the government in Tel Aviv. Ben Gvir is considered on the extreme end of Israel’s political spectrum and is popular among the right-wing settler movement. He lives in a West Bank settlement and has called for the resettlement of Gaza by Israelis.

Yair Lapid, the Israeli opposition leader, attacked Ben Gvir over the post. “Never before has a minister in the security cabinet done such heavy damage to the country’s security, its image and its international status,” he said. “In an unforgivable one-word tweet, Ben Gvir managed to mock and shame Israel from Tehran to Washington. Any other prime minister would have thrown him out of the cabinet this morning.”

Ben Gvir is also pushing for Tel Aviv to impose the death penalty for Palestinian prisoners in order to relieve overcrowding in Israeli detention centers. Israeli forces have rounded up thousands of Palestinians since October 7, with many reporting torture and other mistreatment while in custody. (Source.)

But given what we know now more than 24 hours after this alleged “attack,” one has to wonder if Ben Gvir’s tweet was because the attack was “lame”, or because there was actually no attack at all??

Keep in mind also that yesterday (Friday) there were fireworks going off in the U.S. House of Representatives over military spending bills, including one for Israel.

So perhaps funding from the U.S., or the lack of funding to replenish weapons that were used to repel the actual attack from Iran, were a key part of this apparent charade.

Whatever the case, it appears that Iran gets the last laugh on this one, at least for now, until the U.S. sends Netanyahu and the Zionists $billions more in aid and weapons.
