2 Drones Shot Down Above Iraq Base Housing US Troops: Army
The Iraqi army said Sunday two drones were destroyed above a base housing US troops, one month after the same base was targeted by an armed drone.
The US military’s C-RAM defence system was activated to shoot down the drones above the Ain al-Assad base, located in Iraq’s western desert, the Iraqi military said.
Several hours earlier a rocket was shot down above Baghdad airport, without causing casualties or damage. The US consistently blames Iran-linked Iraqi factions for such attacks.
