Shortly after the Israeli military said fighter jets downed two suspected drones heading toward Eilat from the eastern direction, an Iran-backed militia in Iraq takes credit for the attack.

The Islamic Resistance in Iraq claims to have launched two drones at a “vital target” in Israel’s southernmost city.

The Iran-backed group has claimed numerous drone attacks amid the ongoing war, with the IDF reporting downing many of them.
