The Islamic Resistance in Iraq launched on early Tuesday a new kamikaze drone against a strategic target in the southernmost part of the 1948 “Israeli”-occupied territories in response to the entity’s relentless aggression on Gaza.

The Islamic Resistance in Iraq, an umbrella group of anti-terror fighters, in a statement published on its Telegram channel, claimed responsibility for an attack on a “vital” installation in the Port of “Eilat”.

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

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

The strike marked the first application of al-Arfad suicide drones in operations against “Israeli” and US interests in the West Asia region.

Arfad drones resemble the Yemeni Armed Forces' domestically-developed and long-range Sammad [Invincible] drones.

Sammad drones are available in three models, all featuring distinctive V-shaped tail fins and a pusher engine. They have a ventral protrusion and wing skids, which they use for taking off and landing.
