Does deflecting a fireball with a looting sword give better drops?

I got 2 ghast tears after I thought I deflected a fireball back at the ghast (with my looting 3 sword). But I was pretty close, so I might have just hit it. I’m not sure.

If I deflect a fireball with a looting sword and it kills the ghast, do I still get the looting bonus?

    Yes. If a mob is killed by something directly caused by the player (reflected ghast fireball, splash damage potion, fall damage after a hit, arrow, etc.) while the player holds a looting sword, it applies the looting bonus.
