Heavy Iranian-Made Rocket Struck US Camp Victory In Iraq’s Baghdad (Photos)

Early on January 5, a rocket attack targeted the US Camp Victory military base which is located near the international airport of the Iraqi capital, Baghdad

In a brief statement, the Iraqi Security Media Cell said that a single rocket, launched from the al-Jihad neighborhood in western Baghdad, struck the military base.

The Sabereen News channel on Telegram claimed that the rocket hit the main building of the US military’s Baghdad Diplomatic Support Center (BDSC) in Camp Victory. No casualties were reported, however.

Following the attack, Iraqi security forces found two rocket launchers along with a rocket that failed to fire in al-Jihad neighborhood. The 240 mm rocket was identified as a Falaq-1. This type is made in Iran by the Aerospace Industries Organization. The rocket has a maximum range of 10 kilometers and carries a 50 kg high-explosive warhead.

The rocket attack was most likely carried out by pro-Iranian forces in Iraq in the memory of Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, Deputy-Commander of the Popular Mobilization Units, and Iran’s Quds Force Commander Maj. Gen. Qassim Soleimani who were assassinated by the US around two years ago.

This was the third attack on US forces in Iraq this year. Early on January 3, two suicide drones targeted Camp Victory. However, both were successfully intercepted. On January 4, two more suicide drones targeted US forces’ positions inside Ayn Al-Assad Air Base in the western province of al-Anbar. Both drones were also shot down.

More attacks will likely targeted US bases in Iraq in the upcoming few days. Pro-Iranian forces warned the US that they will not tolerate its military presence in the country beyond 2021. Nevertheless, Washington ignored the warnings.

Finding that rocket looks pretty fake to me, like a false flag to blame Iran.
But in any case, bombing american invaders is good, to hell with those zio-terrorists!
