The US coalition in Iraq confirmed the fact of rocket fire at the base of At-Tange

Two Iraqi troops and three members of the US coalition were injured in varying degrees of severity as a result of rocket fire at Al-Taji military base in Iraq. This was reported by NBC News.


The Pentagon confirmed the fact of shelling the territory of the base and injuring soldiers of the US-led coalition, without providing specific data on their affiliation. According to the official representative of the US-led coalition, Colonel Miles Kaggins, a missile attack on Mount Taji base was carried out on March 14. According to him, twenty-five missiles hit the base, not ten, as previously reported.

The media also noted an unusual time for a missile attack: earlier, all shelling took place at night, but this time the base was fired in the daytime.

Earlier, the Associated Press reported about the rocket fire at the Et-Tange military base, according to their information, two servicemen were injured.

Note that this is the second attack at the base of At-Tang this week. The previous shelling took place on March 11, when 15 missiles hit the base. As a result of a night attack, three were killed: two US troops and a British military doctor. At the same time, from 14 to 17 people were injured (exact data are not given).

      You want to say that this was originally intended to keep the US Army in good shape?
      Americans generally have not been lucky lately.
      The U.S. Navy submarine broke ice and got stuck. The sailors had to climb out and cut the ice with a chainsaw.

        this is called not bad luck, but a consequence of their foreign policy (if we speak of shelling)

        there is no reason to say that the submarine is stuck.
        By the way, this "cheburashka" is also stuck ???

        Usually they used chainsaws to cut wood into the engine fire, but then they had to be used for other purposes. Saws are always with you, just in case of an emergency! lol Colleagues, tell me please, do we have saws on the submarine?

    C'mon, what a shelling. The grateful Iraqis return the excesses of the applied democracy ... They searched for 17 years where to stick, but decided - not, there is too much democracy in one country ... And they carried it back ....

    Note that this is the second attack at the base of At-Tang this week.

    I think this is just the beginning. Further, Iraqi resistance will more often attack Americans.

          Partisans need to.
          And do not purchase (for already), but borrow from the Iraqi army.

      For the public of the West, the lives of the natives are of little value.
      They are something only in performances arranged by "white helmets." But the lives of white people - this is not at all that ... yes

      Victor, I thought, however. The second week of shelling at an American base is good.

      Just yesterday, 30 times fired at the DNI, three civilians were injured. This morning, as a result of shelling, a man born in 1935 was wounded, his condition is very serious. There is no information on this on the VO website

    Not a bad result, as for me. Having changed the saying, we can say that Iranian tears will pour out to Trump. Patriots (SAM) are not on duty yet?

    I wonder which one of them will stop first? With this, an eye for an eye, one can even reach a full-scale war.
