Six people injured in Iraqi military base attack
According to Agence France-Presse, the Iraqi military stated that multiple rockets attacked an Iraqi military base near Baghdad International Airport on December 9. It is reported that the base is also where the US military is stationed. It is reported that the attack wounded six Iraqi soldiers.
According to reports, sources from the Iraqi security services said that the soldiers injured in the attack on the 9th belonged to the Iraqi counter-terrorism force, an elite force created and trained by the US military. Sources said two of them were in critical condition. It is reported that the military base is also stationed with American soldiers and American diplomats.
According to a statement from the Iraqi military, Iraqi security forces found the rocket launcher and found that it was not operating properly, suggesting that the attackers had originally planned to launch a larger-scale attack.
It is reported that this is the latest increase in a rocket attack against a U.S. military base in Iraq or the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad. Earlier on December 3, the US military in Iraq’s Assad Air Force Base was also attacked by five rockets.
