Iranian drones attack in Israel, IDF shot down two, sources
TEL AVIV, (BM) – Russian media report that Hamas has begun using Iranian drones to carry out attacks on cities in Israel. According to Aviapro, the Hamas political-military movement used strike drones, including kamikaze drones.
According to the Israeli media Jerusalem Post, Hamas has Shehab drones, which Iran has developed based on the Iranian Ababil drone. There is no official information about the presence of drones in the Hamas movement. Still, sources claim that Iran armed the political-military movement with at least 30 unmanned aerial vehicles at the beginning of the year.
And if the Russian media does not indicate the source of its information and raises doubts about its authenticity, then The Times of Israel confirmed the claims of the Russians.
According to the website, the Ministry of Defense sources say that Hamas uses drones to strike Israel. Even in the last hours, the IDF confirmed that the Iron Dome had shot down a drone that had entered the country’s airspace. We remind you that yesterday, an Israeli F-16 shot down another drone, which was supposed to be a kamikaze drone.
It remains unknown whether Hamas’ first attempts at drone bombing and destruction or whether the movement has used dozens since the beginning of the conflict.
Israel keeps Iran away
We cannot help but notice that since the beginning of the intense rocket attacks between Israel and Hamas, Iran, the most significant follower of anti-Israeli policy, has stayed away from the conflict.
Iran, of course, has been supplying weapons to Hamas for years and will continue to do so. He’s doing it now. This indirect involvement of Tehran can only please the Iranian government.
But the situation could have been different. However, Tel Aviv skillfully keeps Iran away from direct involvement in the conflict with its political moves. So far, Israel has not blamed Iran for the attacks on its cities but directly blames the Palestinian Sunni-Islamic fundamentalist but a pragmatic, militant, and nationalist organization, Hamas.
So, for now, Iran will keep its missiles away from Israel, and any attempt at direct intervention or direct intervention could turn this conflict into an international one.
What is happening in the area?
The violence began after the focus fell on controversial judicial and political actions over the Palestinian-populated Sheikh Jara district of East Jerusalem. An Israeli court initially ruled that Palestinians should be evicted from the neighborhood and be populated with Israelis. A hearing on the eviction followed, but it never ended last Sunday and was postponed.
On Monday, Jerusalem was subjected to a brief rocket attack by al-Quds and Hamas with a request on the eviction decision. Israel did not comply with the Palestinians, which led to a retaliatory strike and a rocket fire between the two countries for the second day in a row.
According to a field source, Israel has involved fighter jets and tanks in the conflict, which are hitting 130 targets in the Gaza Strip. These goals are related to the Hamas movement. According to the Israeli authorities, these goals are also associated with terrorist organizations.
The international community welcomes the actions of Israelis and Palestinians, but as statements from both sides make clear, both sides may reach no agreement soon.
