In the name of God, the most gracious, the most merciful

“Permission [to fight] has been given to those who are being fought, because they were wronged. And indeed, Allah is competent to give them victory [Quran Al-Hajj: 39]”

In furtherance of our resistance against the presence of American occupation forces in Iraq and the broader region, and in reaction to the massacres carried out by the Zionist entity against our compatriots in Gaza, the Mujahideen of the Islamic Resistance in Iraq initiated a drone attack on the occupied Harir base near Erbil Airport in northern Iraq. The Islamic Resistance affirms its ongoing commitment to dismantling and neutralizing enemy strongholds.

“And there is no victory except from Allah. Verily, Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise [Quran, Anfal: 10]”
