"I believe that during the shelling they used missiles (for)" Katyusha "said Steve Warren, representative of the command of the antiterrorist operation, during a briefing by a teleconference from Baghdad.
According to him, the militants carried out an “targeted rocket attack on a military base in the north of Iraq near the Makhmur settlement” last Saturday.
According to CNN, “the fire support base in the north of Iraq began functioning a few days ago.” According to the TV people, “long-range artillery guns are placed on its territory, which are planned to be used to support the Iraqi troops in the fight against the IS”.
At the base is a "couple of hundreds of US marines." On Saturday, as a result of the shelling, one of them was killed and three were wounded.
It is reported that the terrorists fired at the base of at least 2-x missiles. US troops fired back artillery fire.
