Baghdad Green Zone Missile Attack: Helicopter Helicopters Raised

18

Another so-called “green zone” of the Iraqi capital was attacked. It is reported that at least four missiles exploded near the US embassy in Baghdad.


According to Al-Arabia TV channel, sirens were triggered in the US diplomatic mission. During the shelling, diplomats were transferred to an underground protected complex. At the moment, there is no information about the victims and the destruction.

At the same time, Iraqi and Western media reports contain information that uncontrolled missiles were used during the shelling, for which the improvised mobile installation was used to attack the “green zone”. If all this is true, then this is not the first time that such an installation is brought almost close to Baghdad’s most guarded quarter and a volley is fired from there, after which the installation is thrown at the place from which the shooting was fired.

It is reported that helicopters were lifted into the air over the Iraqi capital. We are talking about, among other things, US Air Force helicopters taking off from one of the military bases near Baghdad.

So far, no detection of a launcher has been reported.

Recall that earlier Donald Trump announced the next stage in the withdrawal of US troops from Iraq. Opponents of the US president from the Democratic Party are against this initiative.

      When the Russian embassy in Damascus was bombarded with bearded thugs, Russia raised a question at the UN about the need to condemn such acts and take measures to prevent them from happening later, but the mattresses and Ko blocked this resolution. Now arrives at their embassy. I think so, that is fair and regret that it is not effective in terms of defeat. Maybe after that, the mattresses will understand that international law and security should be the same for everyone.

    four rockets exploded near the American embassy in Baghdad
    For some reason, rockets always burst (fall) precisely not far from the American embassy. The relics aren’t enough to fly, but the eye is on or is the sight down? Therefore, there is a lasting impression that the "shelling" is initiated by the American side in order to show its president that it is early and inexpedient to leave Iraq.

      Just for Americans, the entire territory of the country in which their embassy is located is the territory surrounding it. Not an embassy in the country, but a country around the embassy.

      It depends on who launches the missiles, if it’s the United States, then the missiles do not reach, if the Iraqis, then the missiles hit the target.

      Probably because the missiles are "self-made" request . Last time, a similar shelling led to the fact that the mattresses remained hungry because a rocket hit a canteen on their territory.

          Knowing the Shtatovtsy as the most unrivaled world intriguers, you always need to turn all their information 180 degrees, and read not from top to bottom, but from bottom to top.

      Saying little needs to be done. And it’s impossible to do.

    Green Zone - The name of the district in the center of Baghdad (Iraq), where foreign and government facilities are located. Foreign diplomats and representatives of civilian firms involved in rebuilding Iraq also settled here. Thus, the “green zone” has become the center of international presence in Baghdad. There are not only embassies of states but also other countries in the green zone, there is more logic for less patriotism

    Another so-called “green zone” of the Iraqi capital was attacked. At least four rockets are reported to have exploded nearby from the American Embassy in Baghdad.
    Interestingly, "nearby" is how much? 10, 30, 50 m.? At what distance is the fear of Merikatos diplomats calculated? laughing In Cuba, so there they were prevented from working by cicadas; wassat Painfully tender at the embassy! wassat

    Why soar with rockets - it’s more convenient from a mortar
