The Islamic Resistance in Iraq has launched two separate drone strikes against a strategic target and military installations in the southernmost part of the 1948 Israeli-occupied territories, in support of Palestinians amid the Tel Aviv regime’s onslaught against Gaza.

The resistance group, an umbrella group of anti-terror fighters, in a statement published on its Telegram channel on Tuesday, claimed responsibility for the attack on the “vital” site in the Port of Eilat on Monday morning.

It said the drone strike was carried out in continuation of the struggle against the occupying Israeli regime, in support of Palestinians in Gaza, and in retaliation for the massacres that the usurping Zionist entity is perpetrating against women, children and elderly people in the besieged territory.

The group noted that it will continue to target and destroy important installations across the occupied lands.

Earlier, the Islamic Resistance in Iraq announced in a statement that it had employed three kamikaze drones to strike military targets in Eilat.

The coalition has been staging many such attacks on Israeli targets since the occupying regime launched a genocidal war on Gaza in early October.

Israel waged the atrocious onslaught against the Gaza Strip, targeting hospitals, residences, and houses of worship after Palestinian resistance movements launched a surprise attack, dubbed Operation al-Aqsa Storm, against the usurping regime on October 7.

At least 36,050 Palestinians have been killed, most of them women and children, and another 81,026 individuals have sustained injuries. More than 1.7 million people have been internally displaced during the war as well.
