JERUSALEM: A drone, suspected to be carrying explosives, has crashed near the occupied Golan Heights.
Iraqi armed group claimed the responsibility. The drone was reportedly shot down south of the settlement of Eliad.
The Islamic Resistance in Iraq, asserted that it targeted a “vital” site with what they referred to as “appropriate weaponry.” This move is seen in the context of the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas, with Israel reiterating its commitment to continue its campaign against Hamas.
As the conflict persists, casualties in Gaza, largely comprising women and children, have reached at least 21,110, as reported by Gaza’s Hamas-run health ministry. The Islamic Resistance in Iraq, known for multiple attacks against US forces in Iraq and Syria, has, in this instance, extended its reach to Israeli interests, marking a concerning development.
The geopolitical dynamics surrounding this incident are complex, with factions opposed to US support for Israel in its conflict against Hamas showing their resistance. It’s essential to note that the Golan Heights, where the drone crashed, was seized by Israel from Syria in the 1967 Arab-Israeli war and annexed in 1981, a move not recognized by the United Nations.
