'It was not a strike': Iran FM dismisses Israeli weapons as 'children toys'

Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian has praised the combat readiness of the country’s air defense systems and described the Israeli military's unmanned aerial vehicles as more like children's toys.

“What happened last night was not a strike,” Amir-Abdollahian said in an interview with NBC News on Friday as he commented on the sound of explosions in the country's central city of Isfahan and subsequent shots that the air defense systems fired at a suspicious object.

The top Iranian diplomat went on to emphasize that Tehran is not seeking to escalate conflict unless the Israeli regime commits a folly and launches a new attack.

“As long as there is no new adventurism by Israel against our interests, then we are not going to have any new reactions,” he said.

Amir-Abdollahian, however, underscored that Iran will respond at an immediate and “maximum level” in case Israel opts to launch an attack.

“If Israel takes a decisive action against my country and this is proven to us,” he said, “our response will be immediate and to the maximum and will cause them to regret it.”
