On May 22, an unidentified combat drone targeted a vehicle in the western region of Iraq, near the border line with Syria.
The vehicle, a Toyota pickup truck, was destroyed as a result of the strike. Nevertheless, no human losses were reported.
After the incident, the Sabereen News, a Telegram channel linked to pro-Iranian forces in Iraq, shared a video showing a drone, believed to be the one that carried out the strike, flying over the al-Qa’im crossing on the Iraqi-Syrian border.
The drone has not been identified, yet. However, Iraqi sources speculated that the drone was either American or Israeli.
In the last few years, several similar strikes were reported on the Iraqi-Syrian border. On February 11, a mini truck, allegedly carrying an Iranian weapons shipment, was targeted by a combat drone on the border line.
These strikes are meant to disturb the movement of weapons and personnel between Iraq and Syria. Both Israel and the US may be behind these attacks.
