Iraqi Resistance strikes 'vital target' in occupied lands

TEHRAN, Jan. 17 (MNA) – Iraq's Islamic Resistance says it has struck a "vital target" lying in the center of the occupied Palestinian territories in protest at the Israeli regime's ongoing genocidal war against the Gaza Strip.

The Resistance group, an umbrella group of anti-terror combatants, announced the development in a statement on Tuesday, the 102nd day of the war.

Describing the operation, it said it had hit the target with "an al-Arqab long-range advanced cruise missile in the past few days."

The statement said the operation had been conducted "in continuation of our path in resisting the occupation and in support of our people in Gaza."

The Iraqi group ended its statement by pledging that it would continue "striking the enemy's strongholds," saying "We promise you more."

Israel waged the war on the strip on October 7 after the Gaza-based Palestinian Resistance groups of Hamas and Islamic Jihad carried out the surprise Operation Al-Aqsa Storm into the occupied territories in response to the occupying regime’s intensified crimes against the Palestinian people.

The US has offered untrammeled support for Israel during the onslaught that has so far killed more than 24,280 Palestinians, mostly women and children, and injured over 60,000 others.
