At least 10 missiles fired at a US military base in Iraq

68

Confirmed information about the missile strike, which was inflicted on an American base in Iraq. We are talking about the military facility Ain al-Assad in the western part of the country - in the province of Anbar.


According to updated data, at least 10 missiles were fired at the military base.

Coalition spokesman Colonel Wayne Marotto said the attack took place at approximately 7:20 am local time. However, no one took responsibility for the shelling.

It is reported that at the time of the rocket attack at the Ain al-Assad base, in addition to the American military, there were representatives of the Iraqi armed forces. According to some reports, servicemen from NATO countries and the so-called "partner countries" also remain there. At the same time, the specific state affiliation is not announced.

According to a spokesman for the Iraqi military command, "the attack did not cause major damage."

It should be noted that this missile strike was carried out on a US military facility in Iraq just a few days after the US Air Force bombed eastern Syria. After that bombing, several acts of sabotage were organized against persons collaborating with the US military in the SAR. So, on the eve in the province of Haseke, a native of Iraq was eliminated, who provided the Americans with logistical assistance. It is noteworthy that they shot him near the base where American instructors teach military affairs to representatives of Kurdish detachments.

It is worth recalling that under Trump, the number of American troops in Iraq was significantly reduced. Today, the main US forces in this country are concentrated at the very base of Ain al-Assad, as well as in Baghdad.

According to Colonel Marotto, "a thorough investigation is underway to identify those who fired at the military facility."

        Here they write that the United States learned that there would be a strike on the base because of ... commercial photographs of the base allegedly bought by Iran. wink Like, I just bought photos, which means tomorrow it will hit, we urgently withdraw the personnel and take out the equipment from there. As soon as everything was taken out and taken out here and the missiles flew in. lol Well, let's put it this way: it is quite possible to feed the products of "ethnomathematics" ... yes And most importantly, the drone flew in advance and filmed the entire "blow" on an absolutely empty base. The video shows that there is only one large funnel, which really can be from the OTP, and two dozen from this funnel there is a completely intact, light, "shield" - "tent" structure. laughing and all the rest, such as "damage", are some old fragments of light structures, dangling on the rags, a bit burnt, with windows on top .... Yes ... This is a strange attack. I wonder how many stolen fuels and lubricants and other supplies were written off for it ... wink

      I agree, 10 missiles should have at least some kind of stuffing, if they are not pyrotechnic.

          With the "photographs of the base" for the purchase of which the Americans allegedly identified the impending strike and were able to prepare for it, in general it was screaming. Rzhaka. So I see, there is such an Iran in a turban, with a beard, in a dressing gown, with the Koran in his hand in a stall where "commercial photographs of military bases" are sold, pokes his head through the window and says: "I am Iran (shows his passport), I want to buy you have "commercial photos" of an American military base in Iraq - this one here (says the name). " The seller to him: "Why do you need these photos? And Iran is like:" Yes, I want to fire rockets at her. "In short, he paid for the" photos "and left. And the seller immediately rushed to the telephone set directly connected with the Pentagon and the Mossad and was choking from excitement in a voice let's yell into the receiver: "Iran just came! Bought photos of your base in Iraq! Probably, tomorrow it will hit with rockets! Get people out of there urgently and take out the equipment! "

    According to updated data, at least 10 missiles were fired at the military base.
    In my preconceived opinion, the more the better.
    It should be noted that this missile strike was launched against a US military facility in Iraq just days after the US Air Force bombed eastern Syria.
    What a funny coincidence ...

    And here is a lot of interesting things. That is, the missiles were able to overcome the air defense system of this base, and what kind of missiles were they, what was there on the base air defense system?
    And on account of the damage, as I understand, the news will still come ... the effect of "fright" will begin to manifest itself and demands for its compensation

      Probably, the shelling was carried out with single-barreled missiles from the Grad. Such parsley was used in Vietnam. They approached covertly, installed, pointed (the base is large, it is difficult to miss) ... Fired a volley, and remember what they called. Such a thing beats for 10 kilometers, 20 seconds of flight time, plus or minus ... if the air defense is not trained, as at our base in Syria, they will probably oversleep such an attack.

        It is easier to put a package of MLRS or NAR guides on a pickup truck and fire a volley. Such funds are more common there.
        And most likely there is no air defense or very conditional. Several Avengers or Hawks. Not the fact that the Patriots had time to bring.

      People whose memory is limited to yesterday's trip to the supermarket can also plan. They hit with a sledgehammer on the wall on which the mosquito sits, and then they wonder why the wall fell on them and hit them on their foreheads with a brick. The main thing is that the whole "alliance" is then called to repair that wall - "I was not the only one who tumbled in the field."
