The Iran-backed Islamic Resistance in Iraq organization took responsibility for a UAV attack on Israel (illustrative).

Monday, 1 April 2024 | For the first time in three weeks, a warning siren sounded in Eilat and the surrounding region over the intrusion of a hostile aircraft. The incoming UAV [unmanned aerial aircraft] caused damage to a building and came a day after the interception of a drone as it attempted to enter the airspace of the Israeli Golan Heights.

Shortly after the sirens were triggered in Eilat, the Israel Defense Forces [IDF] announced that a “suspicious aerial target” had exploded in the Gulf of Eilat after it crossed from the direction of Jordan toward Israeli territory. According to the announcement, there was minor damage caused to a building and no one was injured.

Later, the “Islamic Resistance in Iraq” organization, which is made up of pro-Iranian militias operating in Iraq and Syria, announced that it had attacked a “vital target” in Israeli territory.

The terror groups also published a similar message Sunday morning, in which they took responsibility for a UAV attack—again on a “vital target”—in the Arab–Christian village of Eilabun in the Galilee.

This claim of responsibility was made hours after the IDF announced that it had intercepted a suspicious aerial target that made its way to the southern Golan Heights region from Syria. The UAV was intercepted by a fighter jet even before it crossed into Israeli territory.
