Confirmed data on missile attack on US military base in Iraq

38

The information that an attack was carried out on a US military base on the territory of Iraq was confirmed. In the reports of the Middle Eastern media, referring to the Iraqi military command, it is said that a missile strike was carried out on a military base in the province of Salah al-Din.


According to the latest information, unidentified persons fired at least two missiles at the Balad military base.

According to reports, there are no casualties as a result of the missile attack. At the same time, it is indicated that damage to the infrastructure of the Balad base was caused by ammunition explosions. In particular, the missiles damaged the outer fencing of the base.

Some sources say that "the unknown could deliberately try to destroy the base fence in order to further direct fire at the base's internal objects and the military personnel who were there."

At the moment, the base, which has undergone rocket fire, is home to both a small number of US military personnel and employees of the "security company" Sallyport Global. In fact, this is a PMC, which is engaged in operations related to ensuring the traffic of hydrocarbons. It has been suggested that members of this company may be involved in escorting oil tankers that come from Syria from fields where illegal production is controlled by US troops.

It should be recalled that the United States has been announcing plans for the withdrawal of its contingent from Iraq for several years now. However, American troops still remain on the territory of this country, which they themselves at one time turned from a relatively successful state into ruins.

        In the photo you can see who's hands are going up! yes True, it is not entirely clear why the photo from the ceremony at the Silent Sentry complex at the Al-Udeid airbase in Qatar was stuck here.

          Exactly so that everyone would know that in Iraq exactly the same "carriers of good" that are sitting in Al-Udeid, no worse and no better, fell under the distribution. Rather worse.

      Zeroing ... apparently reconnaissance in force.
      Shooting on fences is certainly cool ... two rockets are already a scale.
      They would have fired better at the fuel and lubricants or ammunition depot.

      or maybe a staging that pursues some goals related to the further presence

        Now they have fewer bases, tk. 6 they have already transferred to the Iraqis. Apparently the mattresses have strengthened the control of those bases that most often fly in and were fried at this base because it was easier to stealthily get close to the strike distance.

            You know, if the Americans need it, they can. Look at Poland, how they raised the economy in a short time. Forgiven debts, invested decent money in the economy, lent very well. Now it is the main partner in the EU, after Germany.
            And then the example of Ukraine ...........

              So far, Ukraine is only being helped by arming and developing the Armed Forces, but nothing is visible in the economy. I don’t know, maybe it’s just not visible to our eyes. (Although, like Poland, debts are not written off).

    During a cleanup operation carried out by the agency in Shusha, on March 15, the remains of missiles were found in two different locations. ... As a result of the latest research, it turned out that this is an Iskander-M missile, - Idris Ismailov, the chief of the operational headquarters (ANAMA), told reporters.
