Iraq resistance carries out retaliatory attack in Israeli port city

The Islamic Resistance in Iraq says it has conducted a new retaliatory attack on an Israeli position in the occupied lands.

The Iraqi umbrella group of anti-terror groups announced in a statement published on its Telegram channel Tuesday.

The group confirmed it launched a drone attack on a vital target in the port city of Umm al-Rashrash, also known as Eilat, on Tuesday evening.

The resistance group said the operation was in response to the Israeli massacre of Palestinian civilians including women, children and the elderly in Gaza.

In early Tuesday, the resistance coalition also released a statement, saying it had struck the “Speer military site” in the occupied territories, “using drones.”

Earlier, it had reported attacking three Israeli military bases in the occupied Palestinian territories and Syria’s Tel Aviv-occupied Golan Heights, as well as the Leviathan gas platform in the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of occupied Palestine.

The operations, the group said, came “in support of our people in Gaza, and in response to the massacres committed by the usurping entity against Palestinian civilians, including children, women, and the elderly.”

The coalition was referring to the Israeli regime’s October-present war against the Gaza Strip.

Nearly 35,000 Palestinians, mostly women and children, have been killed so far as a result of the war that the regime began following a retaliatory operation by Gaza’s resistance groups.

On Monday, the Iraqi resistance said it had targeted two Israeli military bases in the occupied territories with drones.

The Iraqi group vowed to continue retaliatory attacks on Israeli targets.

The Islamic Resistance in Iraq has conducted a series of retaliatory attacks against Israeli positions since Israel launched its genocidal war on Gaza in early October.

The Islamic Resistance in Iraq has also struck major American military bases in Syria and Iraq amid anger over the US support for Israel’s onslaught on Gaza.

Israel started its genocidal war on Gaza on October 7, 2023 after the territory’s resistance fighters carried out Operation al-Aqsa Storm against the apartheid regime in retaliation for its intensified atrocities against the Palestinian people.

The Tel Aviv regime has also imposed a complete siege on the territory, cutting off fuel, medicine, electricity, food, and water to the more than two million Palestinians living there.
