Massive Explosion Rocked PMU Base Near Baghdad, U.S. Drone Strike Suspected (Videos)

Support SouthFront

On July 26 afternoon, a series of large explosions rocked al-Saqer military camp near the district of Dora south of the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.

Al-Saqer military camp hosts forces of the Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) as well as the Iraqi Federal Police. Large quantities of ammunition, which were stored in the camp, exploded. No casualties have been reported, thus far.

Iraqi Security Media said the ammunition exploded as result of “high heat” and “poor storage”. Nevertheless, sources affiliated with the PMU rejected these excuses.

Sabereen News said the camp was bombed by the U.S. military. The Telegram channel released a photo showing an armed MQ-1 Predator drone flying over al-Saqer military camp after the explosion.

The channel also shared the testimony of an Iraqi federal police officer who said the camp was targeted by the U.S. military.

In October last year, a similar explosion took place in al-Saqer military camp. Back then, many Iraqi sources said the explosion was caused by a drone strike.

The U.S. may have attacked the camp in response to recent rocket attacks on its troops and diplomatic mission in Iraq. Washington believes that PMU-affiliated groups are responsible. If the U.S. was indeed behind the explosion, tension between the coalition and the PMU will probably rise.

Possible but probably NOT. :/

Zionism = EVIL

Let me you bring you guys up to speed. Americunts are sore losers, their occupation of Iraq is in tatters, they are now again building up alCIAda, ISIS and other terrorist groups to fan anti-Shia sectarianism. The PMU is basically the Iraqi army that has turned against the cowardly lardass losers, so they are blowing up ammo dumps and attacking the PMU bases. They have done the same in Somalia, first they built up Aidid and his militia and when they turned on the Americunt occupation they killed using their proxy Wahhabi terrorists in the Otto militia. Iraq is nor Somalia and the Shia freedom fighters, despite the CIA installed treacherous cunt Kadhimi, will not rest until the Zionists and Americunts are chased out of the region. This is is just the beginning of a long war of liberation.

Are there any Indian shias in syria?I was thinking about your comment

Zionism = EVIL

I am not sure, maybe some individual pilgrims from Iraq made it through but as you know India unlike Pakistan has tight border controls and it is not that easy to join foreign militias. However, that said, the Saudi Wahhabi cunts are creating ISIS in Kerala and other parts. The main South Asian Shia militias in Iraq and Syria are Afghans and Pakistanis.

Hmm.Thanks for the update.As an Indian I hate the Iranians because it’s about to become a Chinese colony as well as it threatens israel.I think in the long term Iranians will oppose and resist the Chinese as China will simply take over iran through debt traps.

Zionism = EVIL

Don’t believe the Zionist propaganda, Iranians are very nationalistic and will never allow anyone to takeover, the Americunts and Limeys have tried to centuries and failed. India has bigger trade and investment with China, now over 1 billion. It is the Americunt and Zionist stupidity that by their endless hostility towards Iran and sanctions they have ensured Chinese penetration into Iran, Syria and now Iraq and Lebanon. Americunts are dumbasses like children, who don’t think strategically and think violence can solve anything.

Ashok Varma

Abay chutiya, Chine tere ma ki bhosere me? India has very good relations with Iran and all its neighbours with the exception of Pakistan. China is our biggest trading partner.

Rafik Chauhan

Today unfortunate. US and Israel and western country put sanctioned on india for almost 20years for getting nuclerur weopeons and iran supported india in difficult times by supplying oil in credit and other means. and Modi is leeking same western country and backstab iran during difficult time. bcuz its same thing happening to iran today by western country and india under modi turn its back to iran. But still iran has not told india anything bcuz iran knows modi goverment one day it will go . but india will remian and friendship will be restore soon.

Zionism = EVIL

You Indians should be worried more about the Saudis, who give you a few lowly jobs and Modi turns a blind eye to Wahhabi madrassas.

Saudis take madrassa-building spree to India and Afghanistan: Report

In India, Wahhabi Extremism Is A Ticking Time Bomb as Modi and his Hindu extremist BJP take a leaf out of CIA and Shin Beth book by promoting sectarianism.In far-off Wahhabi Islamic universities of Kerala and metro cities such as Hyderabad the Saudis under US patronage are creating Salafist madrassas for recruiting young Sunni men who travel to Syria to join ISIS (caliphate) as Indian government fans violent clashes between the Deobandi groups and Barelwi-Sunni Muslims.

I think our intelligence services have kept them for future use against China.Otherwise there would have been a massive crackdown like we are doing in Kashmir

Rafik Chauhan

You dont have to know that . you are zionist scum . who leek the butt of israel. . And your Modi scum has habbit of backstabbing old friends to get few dollar in his and gujarati businesss pants. If indian shia decide to join the fight in syria and iraq to fight terriost and thier supporters. Modi will not able to stop them. but for now no need indian shia to join. they are back born of ressitance if needed they will be call. so shut your bitch mouth . and open for only leeking your master butt

Iranian influence in Iraq is at its peak as train service is about to open too, the old Basra railroad the British Raj created and now Iran is linking it to Chah bahar, Lebanon and Central Asia. India has committed $100 million to the project.

Free man

I agree.
Bases of the “resistance” are exploding throughout the Middle East as a result of bad weather, fires, human error, power outages ….(And other excuses).
So I don’t understand why the “resistance” is against the US, Israel and Saudi Arabia. The “resistance” should be against the cruel weather, the Occupying fires and the infidel power outages.

Iraqi Security Media said the ammunition exploded as result of “high heat” and “poor storage” ”

Thats their excuse not to have to react. Its been months since Soleimani was assassinated, we were promised all kinds of revenge, yet nothing. If the PMU havent reacted by now its because they cant or wont. Sadly, ZioAmerica wins again.

Rhodium 10

they have attacked many times US bases and many of them are now under Iraqi army as US troops have left that bases.

Fog of War

” they have attacked many times US bases and many of them are now under Iraqi army as US troops have left that bases. ”

How many US troops were killed in those impotent attacks ? Also, how many troops are still in Iraq ? How big is the US green zone there ? How much of Iraq is under Kurd ( US ) control ? If this is your idea of fighting back then Iraq is doomed.

Zionism = EVIL

You are smart guy and understand the military calculus.

Rhodium 10

Five soldiers have been killed included one Brit and one mercenary…all US bases are under threat of Iraqi shia rockets..thats why US troops left many bases

The Objective

You should not overestimate Iran’s willingness to fight. The regime is scared shitless of being toppled. Trump is out to topple the regime, and the Mullahs get the message. What’s holding Trump is domestic support for the war. That’s what Trump is looking for with all these provocations. Should Iran kill Americans and anger the U.S public, war is a certainty.

The Iranian regime is far more concerned with converting Sunnis to shiites than fight the U.S. All the Iranian threat and bluster is meant to impress the Muslim world. But Trump is now exposing them for the coward manipulators they are.

Superfly

They have just fired a few rockets which all missed. No US casualties so far. The Americans will only leave if they suffer losses.

Rhodium 10

How do you know all misses?..you were there?… then ask to five soldiers and contractor killed!..rockets have destroyed many US assets and US troops have to live under trench..thats why many of them left Iraqi bases

cactus

don’t forget about the american jet filled with top cia officers downed in afghanistan …the us claim it’s taliban i say it’s revenge for suleiymani from iran …top cia officer is dead

Fog of War

Unfortunately, if thats your idea of a proper revenge then the ZioAmerica has nothing to fear. Do you think they give a damn about a CIA officer. They have hundreds waiting to fill his role. Also, whats the point of revenge if you dont publicly acknowledge that it was revenge ? Seems counter intuitive.

cactus

he was the head cia officer for the middleast he was directly responsible dor suleiymani death …sometimes it’s better to do things in secret specialy when you’re agaisnt warmongers

Fog of War

” sometimes it’s better to do things in secret ”

No its not, not in this situation . Also, a ” warmonger ” will go to war no matter what. Being passive will not stop them, Especially in ZioAmerica’s case, where they have no choice.

Icarus Tanović

It is great slap to slimy Potato Mike face.

Zionism = EVIL

The only language the Americunt and Zionist cowards understand is casualties. Why do you think they are shit scared of Hezbollah? The Iraqi PMU needs to wage a total FLN/Algerian style war of liberation to get rid of the Americunt losers who have stolen over a BILLION barrels of Iraqi OIL to fund these terrorist wars and occupation. Iraq used to be a middle income nation before the Americunt/Zionist and NATO invasion and occupation, today its people are the poorest in the region, at par with Yemen and do not even have clean water.

Zionism = EVIL

This is the best time to hit the Americunts as they head into a full scale civil war:

Whites aren’t going to go into black neighborhoods and bother them as long s blacks stay out of white neighborhoods. Blacks are at much greater risk from black criminals in their own neighborhoods.

Their probable use is in their own neighborhoods to enforce some semblance of order in the event of societal breakdown. Not against whites or suburbs.

Go and get them brother.

Zionism = EVIL

A historically factual post. It is indeed the Jews and British cunts who enslaved over 20 million Africans and massacred another 10 million at least. The Belgian bastard Leopold used to make skull mountains of African women and children and cut off their limbs if they did not slave in the mine pits of Katanga. The French arseholes were even worse racists.

Icarus Tanović

You know many things, man. You are very well informed.

RichardD

Either you haven’t read my work here or are misrepresenting it. I’m the last person here who is a Zionist.

As far as the rest of your rant. Whites are roughly half of the population here. And most Americans get along with each other on a day to day basis just fine. What happened in the past isn’t representative of life here in the 21st century. America has evolved past that.

What we do need to do to make further improvements is to get rid of the Jews and their forever war Jew world order hegemony plan that is bleeding us white and destroying our nation for Jews and Israel.

RichardD

I was born in Washington, DC, I’ve lived here in the US my entire life. People with my last name have lived in what is now the US since at least 1620. One of them signed the Mayflower Compact. Which proceeded the Declaration of Independence by 150 years and is the foundational document for US and to a large extent English democracy.

I drove taxi nights in a predominately black area for 5 years. I drive rideshare now with black passengers every night. I live in a mixed race complex and neighborhood. With black people in the same building. You can reject my perspective. But not my background and experience.

I stopped watching the Jew tube 30 years ago. I don’t watch Fox news or any of the other Jew msm toxin.

I want Judaism outlawed and Jews extinct. And you claim that I’m a Zionist. That says more about you than it does about me.

I’ve spent time in Beirut. I’m assuming that being a foreigner, that your perspective is coming from the Jew media. I’m here to tell you that it’s incorrect.

Americans gonna get theirs ass kicked out of Iraq for this. And PMU will do the job.

Zionism = EVIL

There is no question that a full scale resistance war of liberation is coming to the region at time the Americunts are heading into a full scale class and race based civil war. The Iraqis and Syrians need to inflict casualties and cost of occupation.

The class that’s the problem is the white ziodem counter culture. Most black people don’t support the BLM anarchy. And most white people here aren’t racists.

Republicans rarely elect Jews. 43 out of 45 US Jew legislators are democrats. 20% of democratic senators are Jews. And 15% of democratic congressman are Jews. 0% of republican or independent senators are Jews. And 1% of republican congressman are Jews.

“Although Jews make up 2 percent of the U.S. population, nearly 7 percent of the new Congress is Jewish, with 36 Jews among the total of 535 lawmakers in the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate. In the Senate, the 9 Jews members comprise 9 percent of that body.

All of the Jews in the Senate are Democrats, as are all but two in the House. The Republican exceptions are Reps. Lee Zeldin and David Kustoff, from New York and Tennessee, respectively. They are the only non-Christian Republicans in the Congress, according to a report by Pew.

This Congress has six more Jews than its predecessor, which had 30 Jewish members. The record was the 1993 Congress, which included 51 Jews — nearly 10 percent of the total.”

Seriously, I don’t kid you guys, the fucking Jews are a global evil. They will destroy the US, even though some people are waking up. They have fucked up Russia, Ukraine and Europe largely, only China is Jew free.

Zionist, man, Zionists are those, not some common Jew. Many too many Zionists aren’t even Jews, but converts. Scumbags from all over the world went there just like that.

US is destabilizing the whole region with its illegal bases in Jordan, Syria, Iraq, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the Persian Gulf. New details about the U.S.’ interception of Mahan Air plane have been released by the American media this week, including the origin of the

American jets that were involved.

According to NY Times and Jordanian TV, the U.S. F-15 jets took off from the Azraq

Airbase in Jordan and intercepted the Iranian airliner in the Homs Governorate on the night of Thursday, July 24th.

The news report stated that this base is the same one that was used by the drone that carried out the assassination of the late commander of the Quds Force, Major General Qassim Soleimani, on January 3, 2020 near Baghdad International Airport.

The sources indicated that the two American fighters intercepted the Iranian commercial airliner once over the internal air corridor near Al-Tanf region in Syrian airspace and another near the Lebanese-Syrian border and in plain view of Russian and Syrian radars and air defence systems. US planes have also regularly flown near the major Russian airbase at Khmeimim Air Base without a challenge.

US media and defence analysts said that this indicates that the two American fighters were targeting the plane or pushing it into a trap that would result in the Syrian air defenses shooting it down the aircraft, similar to the tactic used by Israel to shoot down the Russian IL-20 killing 15 Russian serviceman. In that incident also, Russia and Syria did not respond or protest.

Ashok Varma

US occupation of Iraq is not sustainable or possible.

George King

Sabereen News said the camp was bombed by the U.S. military. The Telegram channel released a photo showing an armed MQ-1 Predator drone flying over al-Saqer military camp after the explosion.
This is the first time Iran unofficially blames Jordan as having had a role in the interception of the airliner. Nour News also claimed that American “warplanes and drones” involved in the targeted killing of Qassem Soleimani in January flew out of al-Azraq.

The commander of Iran’s Aerospace force in the past had blamed Jordan for having been the launch pad for American drones that killed Soleimani, but Amman had denied the accusation. Iranian reports all along have spoken of two fighter planes, while the U.S. military in a statement has said only one aircraft was involved.

Nour News also threatened Jordan that its support for U.S. military operations can have “consequences” and demanded Jordan’s chargé d’affaires in Tehran be summoned. Iranian officials and media have presented the incident as a sign of American threatening behavior and recklessness and its hardliner Judiciary has demanded the foreign ministry resort to international legal action.

Absolute FACT. The Americunt arseholes are trying to weaken the Iraqi military/PMU which has turned on them. The cowardly Americunt planes that attacked the Iranian Mahan air civilian airliner also came from the puppet pimpdom of Jordan.

After 20 years of a brutal colonial and exploitative US and NATO occupation, that has destroyed and impoverished their ancient land, the Iraqis are resisting and the US is trying to destroy them.

Zionism = EVIL

The pathetic bastards are dying in the streets and even the OECD listed the US as the worst place to raise a family, health care or quality of life, but the ignorant dumb arseholes are spending trillions on lost Jew fanned wars in the middle east. Just today a PEW poll showed that 80% of Americunts would immigrate if they could as a race and class based civil war looms.

Zionism = EVIL

RT has a lot of Americunts working and Brits, and they are like MSM. BTW, even their own media now acknowledges that the Americunts are in irreversible decline.

whenever an incident in Iraq or Syria is directed against interests that are reputedly backed by Iranian, the usual and obvious suspect is the jews in illegally occupied Palestine and each instance makes it abundantly clear why it is necessary to clear the middle east of all jews, once and for all. as long as one jew remain in the middle east there will be war and destruction and the fact that the jews threaten the world with the use of their nukes should be sufficient reason to declare them surplus to the world. they have in every respect forfeited the right to exist.

Free man

Bases of the “resistance” are exploding throughout the Middle East as a result of bad weather, fires, human error, power outages ….(And other excuses).
So I don’t understand why the “resistance” is against the US, Israel and Saudi Arabia. The “resistance” should be against the cruel weather, the Occupying fires and the infidel ceasefires.

Ashok Varma

US must live in a cave and are totally ignorant, US and NATO invaded Iraq twice, sanctioned it for years and destroyed it, killing millions. Are you really qualified to post comments, with such shameful ignorance?

Free man

The “resistance” is even afraid to blame the US.
If there were no evidence, the “resistance” would have announced that a lightning has hit Soleimani’s car.

The Objective

They don’t want to announce the U.S and Israel are responsible because they are a resistance out to deceive the Muslim world not fight the enemy. Acknowledging that the U.S and Israel are being these fires will compel the Iranian regime to act or risk losing face.

Free man

“Acknowledging that the U.S and Israel are being these fires will compel the Iranian regime to act or risk losing face.” – Indeed, it is obvious.
