NEW YORK, January 31. /TASS/. Israel believes that Sunday night's strike on Iran has achieved its goals, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing sources familiar with the details of the operation.

According to the newspaper's sources, the attack was carried out by Israel's Mossad foreign intelligence service. The target was an Israeli Defense Ministry facility in Isfahan where unnamed weapons were allegedly being manufactured.

The IRNA news agency reported on Sunday night that a powerful explosion rocked the city of Isfahan in central Iran.
