Iraqi Resistance Forces Attack Israeli Target in Tel Aviv

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The Iraqi Islamic Resistance forces have for the first time carried out a missile strike against an Israeli target in Tel Aviv in retaliation for the Zionist regime’s onslaught on Gaza.

The Iraqi forces on Thursday claimed responsibility for missile attacks on three sites in the cities of Tel Aviv and Be'er Sheva in the occupied territories.

The Islamic Resistance in Iraq said in two online statements that on Thursday noon, its fighters launched three attacks with long-range ‘al-Arqab’ upgraded cruise missiles on two vital sites in Tel Aviv and one in Be'er Sheva in southern Israel, Xinhua reported.

One strike has reportedly targeted Mossad’s ‘Glilot’ intelligence center in Tel Aviv.

The Iraqi forces also said they have attacked the ‘Abraham’ intelligence center in Be'er Sheva.

In another statement, the Islamic Resistance of Iraq said a “vital Israeli target” in the Dead Sea region, located between Jordan and the occupied Palestinian territories, has been attacked.

The Iraqi forces said the attacks were carried out "in solidarity with the people of Gaza" and pledged to persist in targeting the "enemy's strongholds".

At least 34,596 Palestinians have been killed and 77,816 wounded in Israeli attacks on Gaza since October 7, 2023.

The UN said rebuilding war-ravaged Gaza will cost as much as $40 billion and require an effort on a scale the world has not seen since World War II amid “unprecedented levels of human losses and capital destruction”.
