A statement issued by the "Islamic Resistance in Iraq" that they targeted the "American occupation base" Ain al-Assad in western Iraq using a drone, directly hitting their intended target.
The statement indicated that this strike was in retaliation for "crimes committed by the enemy against the people of Gaza," referring to the ongoing conflict between Hamas and Israeli forces.
