The American Embassy in the occupied territory has issued a travel restriction for its personnel and their families, prohibiting them from venturing beyond Greater Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, and Beersheba until further notice.

This cautionary measure comes in response to reports of Israel initiating a retaliatory strike within Iran, as confirmed by the US Embassy in Tel Aviv.

Earlier, conflicting reports emerged regarding an alleged Israeli Occupation attack on sensitive Iranian sites during Friday's dawn marches.

While some news agencies denied any such attack, American and other sources in Tel Aviv confirmed the use of drones in an assault on Iran.

The Iranian News Agency stated that no significant explosions resulting in casualties were reported due to external threats across the country. It later clarified that the marches faced ground anti-aircraft guns at low altitudes rather than missile defense systems. Additionally, the agency assured the safety of nuclear facilities in Isfahan Province, with no incidents recorded.

Tasnim News Agency of Iran refuted claims of explosions in Tabriz, attributing the sounds heard to defenses engaging suspicious objects.

Earlier, Fox News, citing an American military source, reported that the Israeli Occupation missile strikes on Iran were limited in scope. Hebrew Channel 12 indicated that although Washington did not express a specific stance, it had informed Tel Aviv beforehand about a planned strike on Iran.

Moreover, according to security officials in Tel Aviv, The New York Times reported that Israeli Occupation was responsible for the Friday dawn attack on Iran.
