US accused pro-Iranian forces of firing missiles at an American military base in Iraq

14

Information came from Iraq that one of the American bases came under rocket fire. This is reported by the Iraqi media, citing the military department.


The materials say that at least three missiles were fired at a US military base located in the immediate vicinity of the airport of the Iraqi capital, Baghdad. This is the Victory base through which all the logistics operations of the US troops in Iraq are carried out.

Reports say that "one of the missiles fired at the military base exploded near the airstrip."

No casualties, including among the US military, have been reported at the moment. At the same time, the United States claims that the missile attack was carried out by pro-Iranian forces.

Recall that this is far from the first missile attack on US military facilities in Iraq. Earlier, at least three times (including under Trump), the bases of American troops in Iraq were subjected to shelling. The most intense shelling was carried out after the American special operation against the Iranian General Qasem Soleimani.

It should also be noted that consultations on the possible return of Washington and Tehran to the so-called "nuclear deal" are underway in Vienna these days.

      Somehow "it will not be enough".
      It is necessary to hit so massively on their bases!
      Iran has a proxy, why not massage?

    And what did the Americans want? Under the cover of their military bases, calmly plunder the Iraqi and Syrian peoples, brazenly pumping oil from their land. It's time to put an end to this.

    The US says the missile attack was carried out by pro-Iranian forces.
    It is strange, but missile attacks practically do not bring any damage to the Americans, but at the same time they give the American military and the media a reason not only to accuse Iran (pro-Iranian forces), but also to speculate about the premature withdrawal of American troops from Iraq.

      So they thresh from "samovars", and therefore the accuracy of hits is low. Usually these "samovars with guides" are thrown on the spot after shooting. no pity. This is in my opinion the second shelling in 10 days. The first time they fired 4 missiles, one undershot, the second flight, and two fell on the territory of the base, damaging their catering facilities.

      They were not going to go out anyway. Someone has to steal oil. In pursuance of the demand of the Iraqi parliament "On the withdrawal of the American contingent," they engaged in imitation of a partial implementation of this decision and left a number of bases, handing them over to the Iraqis, while reinforcing a number of others to provide for the contingent in Syria on the "guard" of oil. They will think about the exit only when their losses exceed the income from the stolen oil. hi

      Iraqis are no match for Afghans as fighters. And the terrain is not conducive

    Well, they accused me. Now what? winked
    The wife comes home at 6 in the morning, drunk in the trash.
    Husband who hasn't slept all night running around
