Iran said on Friday it had arrested the “main perpetrators” behind a recent drone attack on a military site in the city of Isfahan, again pointing the finger of blame at Israel.

The involvement of Israel’s “mercenaries” in the attack has been “proven,” state media reported, citing a joint statement by the Intelligence Ministry and the intelligence arm of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).

The statement also warned of a retaliation for the attack but did not provide any further details about the arrests.

Iran said last month a drone attack targeted a military site linked to its Defense Ministry in Isfahan, describing the incident as an “unsuccessful attack.”

The country’s representative to the United Nations later accused Israel of being behind the attack.
