An American MQ-1C Gray Eagle UAV was damaged as a result of a drone strike on a US air base in Iraq.

At night, an attack drone attacked a US military base in Iraq. According to the latest data, the drone dived and exploded at the Al-Harir military airfield, not far from Erbil, the administrative center of Iraqi Kurdistan. It is reported that the American air defense system was unable to counter even one drone the adversary.

The infrastructure at the airport is damaged. According to some reports, as a result of the strike, the American reconnaissance and attack drone MQ-1C Gray Eagle, as well as warehouses used by American special operations forces, received significant damage.



In 2021, the American authorities began withdrawing their contingent from the Al-Harir base, but certain units remain there to this day. Moreover, the number of American troops in Iraq began to grow again after the escalation of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. There are no reports of deaths or injuries to American troops (as a result of the strike).

Meanwhile, the Pentagon said that the Iranian IRGC was behind the attack on the military airfield. And at the same time, it was stated that in connection with the increasing attacks on American targets in the Middle East, the US Department of Defense is considering the option of “using force against Iranian armed formations and forces controlled by them in Syria and Iraq.”

A couple of hours after the UAV attack on Al-Harir, the Americans launched a joint airstrike with the Israeli Air Force against “pro-Iranian forces.” It was announced that “12 militants” had been killed in Syria.

Against this background, the United States confirmed the Houthis’ statements that another drone, the MQ-9 Reaper, was shot down. Only the United States claims that the drone was shot down over international waters, and the Houthis claim that it was shot down over Yemeni waters.

        We also need to take an example from the Persians and Houthis!

        Otherwise, all sorts of people are flying over the Black Sea... And they are leaking information to Bandera’s people...

        It’s not worth measuring America’s losses in green terms. A few seconds and new ones will be printed.
        It must be measured in the duration of the production cycle.
        How long will it take until a new one is ordered, produced, delivered and prepared for combat patrol? This is the true damage.

      Are there any losses? Somehow, 18 missiles were launched and only damaged the UAV. Apparently they hit the database by accident.

        Who will inform you about losses? As always, there are no losses. It’s strange that the damage to the drone was admitted. Apparently there is no way to hide it at all.

    The American reconnaissance and attack drone MQ-1C Gray Eagle received significant damage
    And yesterday the Houthis announced that they shot down an American MQ9 Reaper UAV over the Red Sea and the Americans were forced to admit it. All that remains for the kit is for our VKS to once again splash down an American in the Black Sea.
    Americans carried out a joint airstrike with the Israeli Air Force against “pro-Iranian forces”
    The two “roots” are closely united, and now strikes on Syrian territory are being carried out jointly and without regard to anyone.

        Iran is throwing thunder and lightning at the hands of the Houthis. And quite successfully.

      We'll see how many and how the minke whales arrive...
      They started this process, now the response will fly in the same way.
      Very revealing!

    The Houthis won’t touch them, they have anti-ship missiles, they’ll hit a tanker in the strait - the United States is seen to hold back oil prices. bully

    . Just another confirmation that the GIN IS OUT OF THE BOTTLE!!! Moreover, no one has the prerogative to use its services, its destructive power!
    What’s interesting is that those who tried so hard to launch and lead this process will get what they deserve in full... and this is taking into account that their enemy cannot use the infrastructure to support this process, in any meaningful way!

    The best “damage” is burning out to the ground.
