The Arab media sources are spreading information about the start of Israel's military operation in Iran, but this information has not been confirmed by official sources.
Iran's Supreme National Security Council has reportedly gathered an emergency meeting to discuss drone attacks on strategic defence enterprises.
Some media sources are reporting that against the backdrop of protests and riots that began in the country caused by drone strikes on military targets, the Iranian government introduced a complete ban on the use of the Internet.
