Late on July 2, Iraqi security forces foiled a rocket attack on a military position in the western outskirts of the capital Baghdad.

In a statement, the Security Media Cell said that six Grad [122 mm] rockets prepared for launch had been uncovered by a force from the 6th Brigade in the Iraqi Federal Police’s 2nd Corps in the district of al-Jihad in the western part of Baghdad city.

One suspect was apprehended on site by the Federal Police. Later, all the rockets were dismantled by explosives experts.

Iraqi sources claimed that the rockets were aimed at Camp Victory, the main US military installation in Baghdad International Airport.

The perpetrators of the attack attempt are yet to be identified. Pro-Iranian forces are known for orchestrating similar attacks against US forces in Iraq.

In the last few weeks, a number of rocket attacks were foiled. On June 11, four 107 mm rockets were seized by Iraqi security forces in the area of al-Zanbur in the northern province of Diyala. The rockets were prepared to target Balad Air Base where US troops are present. On June 17, a booby-trapped pickup carrying five 122 mm rockets was uncovered by the Iraqi military and intelligence in the northern province of Nineveh near the border with Syria.

It doesn’t matter if Iraqi “security forces” find those rockets’ sites…most of those rocket attacks didn’t kill or harmed anyone (besides the false flag ones which the US did to blame PMUs for it which failed) and what they really do is making yanquis remember PMUs have much better and heave rockets, (PMUs fly drones overheads of yanquis and they can kill them). Should they attack they can kill 100s of yanquis terrorists rightfully as the Iraqi government told them to fuk off. The yanquis aren’t even safe in Kurd hold areas…they send some of satanic shi& to hell after that attack.
The PMUs did fuked the yanquis base in Syria following the yanquis terrorists attack against PMUs on the Iraq-Syria border.

The Iraqi army so called should be attacking that US base themselves,not trying to stop the resistance.
