Russia sends veiled threat to Israel, US over Iranian weapons depot blast

Russia appeared to issue a veiled threat against Israel and the United States Monday when it condemned the attack on the Iranian weapon depot explosion, as US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken spoke in Jerusalem with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Pentagon spokesperson Brigadier General Patrick Ryder has said that no US military forces were involved in the explosion at Isfahan over the weekend. Israel, as its policy in such attacks, has neither denied or confirmed its involvement.

The Wall Street Journal, however, alleged that Israel was behind the attack.

There is speculation that the facility was connected either to Iran’s nuclear program or to its production.
