Iraq’s Islamic Resistance has announced striking the airbase housing the Israeli air force’s “aggressor squadron,” which acts as the opposing force in wargames partaken by the occupying regime.

The resistance, which is an umbrella group of anti-terror fighters, made the announcement on Thursday after conducting the strike, which it said it had carried out “using drones.”

It specified the target as the regime’s Ovda Airbase, which lies in the southern part of the occupied territories, around 40 kilometers (24 miles) north of the port of Eilat.

The operation, 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.

At least 34.904 Palestinians, mostly women and children, have been killed so far during the war, which began following al-Aqsa Storm, a retaliatory operation by the coastal sliver’s resistance groups.

The Iraqi resistance vowed to continue “striking the enemy's strongholds.”

The group has conducted numerous such strikes against the occupied territories since the beginning of the war.

Most recently, it said it had conducted a pro-Palestinian drone attack agianst a “vital” target in Eilat on Tuesday evening.

Staging its most daring attack since the onset of the Israeli military onslaught on Gaza, the coalition carried out a series of strikes, including against the regime’s spy agency of Mossad’s "Glilot" intelligence center in Tel Aviv on Friday, using advanced “al-Aqrab” cruise missiles.
