Iranian Militia Launches Second Intercepted Drone towards Eilat

The Iranian militia in Syria reportedly launched the drone that struck a school in Eilat, has launched another intercepted aircraft. The IDF believes Iran and Hamas are seeking to escalate the regional conflict, despite operational setbacks. The IDF also faces increasing threats from Yemen, Syria, Lebanon, Judea Samaria, and Gaza.

Meanwhile, as the IDF continues to pressure terrorists in Gaza and evacuate hospitals, China and Russia are pursuing their regional interests amid escalating tensions. The American side is also involved, with equipment convoys and professional discussions about combat methods.

American generals have recognized the extensive tunnel system in Gaza, while the “Imam Hussein Brigade” in Lebanon, led by Dou Al-Fakkar, has been increasingly active since the elimination of Qassem Soleimani. The militia has 6,000 operatives from various countries, trained for religious war and equipped with advanced weapons.

Notably, the “Arrow-3” defense system intercepted a ballistic missile launched by the Houthis in Yemen, marking the first operational interception of its kind. The “Arrow-2” system also intercepted missiles last week, demonstrating Israel’s advanced defense capabilities. The Houthis have claimed to launch missiles towards Israel, prompting defensive actions from the IDF.
