American fighter jets shot down two drones flying over Iraq last month. The defense establishment has confirmed the drones were Iranian and headed towards Israel. The foiled attack occurred February 14, after Israeli security officials were on high alert “over fears of an Iranian response to a series of Israeli attacks on Iranian targets as part of the IDF’s war-between-wars campaign.”

The drones were intercepted and thwarted near Erbil, the Kurdistan region of Iraq. The drones were taken down by the international coalition efforts. Israel has announced the Iranian “Shahed 197 drones” being eliminated before, such as last year, when drones were “ferrying weapons to Palestinian terrorist groups in the Gaza Strip.”

The drones were taken down March of 2021”by missiles fired by the stealth jets, making it the first time that the aircraft downed unmanned aerial systems anywhere in the world” reports The Jerusalem Post.

It is believed Iran is testing capabilities for drones to be able to deliver equipment such as military, weapons or pieces to aid in carrying out terrorist attacks to enemies of Israel such as the Gaza Strip and Palestinian territories.

“Israeli officials estimate that Iran was attempting to test whether military equipment could be smuggled to Gaza via drone and if successful, if more significant weapons could be smuggled in a similar way in the future.”

The Israel Defense Forces said they discovered nearly 700 tunnel shafts in Rafah, with some crossing into Egypt.

Israeli Deputy Attorney General Gilad Noam explained the findings at the International Court of Justice.

“Rafah, in particular, is a focal point for ongoing terrorist activity. It is a stronghold for Hamas’ operators with several battalions belonging to the Rafah brigades entrenched in the area,” he said, according to The Daily Wire.

“Also present in Rafah,” said Noam, “is an intricate underground tunnel infrastructure that runs underneath the city and provides ample space for operators, command and control rooms, and military equipment.”

“Nearly 700 tunnel shafts have been identified in Rafah from which approximately 50 tunnels cross into Egypt,” he added. “These tunnels are used by Hamas to supply itself with weapons and ammunition. It could potentially be used to smuggle out Gaza hostages or Hamas senior operators.”

Just The News reports that earlier this year, the IDF released a report stating that they found a tunnel network that runs partly under UNRWA’s Gaza headquarters.

The report stated that the tunnel is 700 meters long with side rooms and an office space.

Israel is reportedly preparing to carry out an invasion in Rafah as it continues its war with Hamas.
