"…“Israel has a lot of experience operating in Iran,” said Jason Brodsky, policy director of the United Against Nuclear Iran, an advocacy group. “Israel has a long history of mounting covert operations inside the Islamic Republic. So that experience has informed what it did overnight in the Islamic Republic.” One of the targets appeared to have been the Shekari 8 Air Base in Isfahan, a base for Iran’s regular army, rather than one used by its feared Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). “I think that they may have viewed the Islamic Republic as less likely to retaliate if they attacked an army base versus an IRGC base,” said Mr Brodsky."
