Are These Rivets?

Hello,
I have a Forest River 2017 wolf pup Limited 16fq. Today the emergency escape window handle came off in my hand and I need to replace the assembly. Is the attached image rivets and what is the easiest method to remove them? I'm guessing drill them from the opposite side? Thanks, Ken.

Appear to be a standard Pop-Rivet. Drilling from the other side is the most preferable, as the drill bit will simply cut thru the aluminum flange and the rivet will separate into the flange and the expanded half.

Your guess is correct they are pop rivets and the way to remove is drilling like you thought good luck
