Iraq: Katyusha rocket hits military base at Baghdad airport

Source: ABC News

“A Katyusha rocket struck an Iraqi military base hosting U.S. troops at Baghdad’s international airport on Wednesday, an Iraqi military statement said. No damage or casualties were reported from the attack, the third in as many days since Monday’s anniversary of a U.S. airstrike that killed top Iranian general Qassim Soleimani in Baghdad two years ago. … On Monday, two armed drones were shot down as they headed toward a facility housing U.S. advisors at Baghdad airport. Two explosives-laden drones targeting an Iraqi military base housing U.S. troops in western Anbar province were destroyed on Tuesday.” [editor’s note: The US occupation of Iraq supposedly ended some time ago. Why are Iraqi bases “hosting” US troops? – TLK] (01/05/22)
