In Iraq, missiles fell to a base with the US military

Five missiles fell on the Iraqi Ain Assad air base, where US troops are stationed, the Israeli newspaper Haaretz reports. The incident occurred in the province of Anbar, in the west of Iraq. Information on casualties and destruction is currently missing.


The publication notes that a high-ranking American general Mark Milli visited the country a week before against the backdrop of large-scale anti-government protests. Some experts believe that popular rallies now taking place in the Middle East, including Iran, can give the United States a chance to reduce Tehran’s regional influence. However, it is also noted that in a different scenario, mass unrest has every chance of harming the American interests themselves.

Everyone who looks at popular protests in the Middle East should remember that we rarely have an idea of ​​how they will go next.

- leads the publication the opinion of John Alterman, an expert on the Middle East.

About who exactly can stand behind the shelling of the Ain Assad military base has not yet been reported. It is noted that we are probably talking about unguided missiles.

More than 5000 US troops are currently in Iraq. Baghdad officially opposes any additional US presence on its territory.

Iraq is not a champion in the number of US troops. Much more US military take Japan, South Korea, Germany, Italy and Britain.

        Maybe this is a "hello" from the national militia of Iraq "Hashd al-Shaabi", whose leaders 4 months ago put forward a demand that the Americans get out in a good way, in order to avoid "troubles." Considering that the police force is 80% controlled and supported by the IRGC of Iran, it is unlikely that the Sha'abists have good feelings for mattresses. Well this is an option what

    This is apparently a kind of kick for the guests, they say it's time and honor to know, although where the pin is, you can hardly talk about any honor, they are like hyenas and jackals, just to steal something. lol

      Those who write a report violate the contract. This leads to the loss of pension and other savings for the service and to a fine.
      In Russia, military personnel are paid 4 salaries per month, bonus and medal for a trip to Syria. Rotations - every 3 (or 4?) Months. A long line of volunteers, despite injuries and inevitable losses.

      Gennady hi Previously, the manna from heaven was falling, now the rockets "fell". Well, it's some kind of mysticism. lol Nobody started, didn’t aim anywhere, but here you come from nowhere, by themselves, and even blurted out. That's just interesting, why on an American base? recourse

    What does it mean - missiles have fallen? The Americans at their base dropped missiles, or what? Then yes, these missiles fell.
    But if missiles hit the American base, then this is a completely different matter. Stupid article, in short.

      - "What do you mean - the missiles fell?"
      The territory of the air base is large.
      The probability of getting into something meaningful is small.
      In this case,
      fell = hit milk successfully.

    Probably the time for missiles comes.
    Who did not hide, they are not to blame.
    If it were written on them, whatever the concrete ... then would identification be used specifically, and so ????
    A rocket infected with a lobster and a mustache!

        With the "poplar" everything would be more complicated and easier! Identifying is not a problem, only there was no one to identify!

    Charming. Americans climb into the affairs of the whole world, completely not understanding what is happening here and how their actions will respond. They simply poke a stick at something, the device of which they do not understand a penny, and laugh merrily. That's the world hegemon, chewed mole! How lucky we all are ...

    Fell like a log, or exploded when falling? The latter would be more interesting in terms of Ji-Ay's reaction to such a surprise!
