On July 9, 2022, a top member of Hizbullah's Executive Council, Nabil Qaouk, commented on the previous week's drone operation, in which Hizbullah sent three unarmed drones toward the disputed territory of Israel's Karish gas field. Qaouk claimed that the operation successfully conveyed a "patriotic message," and had a "quick effect." He added: "The drones plunged the Israeli enemy into new equations and calculations, and the post-drones period does not resemble the pre-drones one."
