Multiple Rockets Launched At US Embassy In Baghdad. US Forces Activate Air Defense (Videos, Photos)

Support SouthFront

On December 20, multiple rockets were launched by unknown gunmen at the Green Zone area in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad. The fortified area hosts the US embassy and Iraqi government buildings. US forces deployed in the area activated their C-RAM (Counter rocket, artillery, and mortar) systems to intercept the rockets. Nonetheless, at least a part of them fell in the area.

    see US the air defenses are not fool proof and since this a “tried and true method” of sir defense for the US it only makes the situation worse for US arms companies.

    1. Frank says:

      Frankly, it is quite surprising that the Iraqi resistance has not used more IED’s to target the occupation forces. Perhaps, the resistance is slowly escalating its response to the brutal occupation of their country.

  2. Dick Von Dast'Ard says:

    Once again the coerced occupation of Iraq costs Iraqi collateral lives due to American fire.

    1. Frank says:

      US and its NATO vassals has killed over 2 million Iraqis, committed horrendous war crimes and then expect no resistance. Frankly, the Americans are beyond insane. Their economy is dying along with the imploding police state, but they want to loot Iraqi and Syrian oil and spread terrorism.

      1. Lone Ranger says:

        Hear hear.
        The crumbling empire wont go into the night peacefully like the Soviet Union did, Americants are going out kicking and screaming.
        They had the chance to be the greatest country ever instead they used it for World domination.
        No single nation can rule this planet, not in the past not in the present not in the future.
        Everyone who tries it will be destroyed.

        1. Ashok Varma says:

          The empire is bankrupt and faring worse than India in its inability to deal with Covid pandemic and Americans are dying in the streets.

          Homeland Security Warning:

          America’s image has tumbled during Trump’s presidency and the foreign conflicts are diverting scarce resources from reaching the millions of Americans who have joined the growing ranks of poor. US domestic law enforcement agencies are warning that a social breakdown is inevitable if the current misappropriation of resources continues. US debt is expected to reach $40 trillion if the wars and pandemic are not brought under control. US debt will reach 300% of its dwindling GDP by 2025.

  3. farbat says:

    another daesh cia operation to legitimize american occupation all resistance groups were ordered to not hit the green zone so who else is this either somebody immensely annoyed of america which lashes out without reason getting used by america or somebody working for the usa

    1. Frank says:

      Iran says timing of US embassy attack in Iraq ‘raises suspicions’ of a desperate false flag in the dying days of Trump.

  4. farbat says:

    these americans can never stop their idiotic games they will have be hit on the head and i guess we should treat centcom the way we treat other terrorists and take out their whole commando structure soon to the last officer

  5. LaRata says:

    Very Poor AAA by the 2 trillon Armed Forces …

    1. Frank says:

      The occupation outpost “embassy” the largest espionage and terrorism sponsor base in the region cost the deadbeat dying US taxpayers over $1.5 billion and is not faring well. US taxpayers should be out in the streets protesting against these Zionist inspired lost wars.

  6. Ali says:

    It’s time for you to get the fuck out of Iraq.

    1. Ashok Varma says:

      As the US occupation of Iraq enters its third decade, it is quite apparent that resistance is growing and will further sap an exhausted and bankrupt America, which now has millions in poverty and without even basic health care. The US is also looting around $1 billion in Iraqi oil revenues as month causing misery to its people. The US invaded Iraq on totally false premises, killed millions and destroyed the fragile regional power balance, and is now saddled with an untenable occupation sustained by fanning sectarianism and proxy Wahhabi terrorism. Now with Trump rapidly heading towards the garbage heap of history, the Iraqis and their allies will only target US occupation forces with more vigour. The overall cost of the Iraq defeat to the US has been around $15 trillion, but the erosion of its global standing has been far worse and turned the US into a pauper. It is high time that US end its destructive wars and leave the region and take care of its massive poverty and problems at home.

      Pain, despair and poverty reach fever pitch for over 100 million unemployed workers in the US. The death toll from the mismanaged Covid pandemic now reaches over 4000 a day.

      1. Icarus Tanović says:

        No ‘sectarianism’ only fat payed Wahhabis that works for Zios and Americans that did terror against Muslims. Very simple.
        You think Al Baghdadi even existed and was a Muslim? Think again.
        As for ‘corona’ that crap don’t exists, even if it did it was not as serious as common flue.
        Mere tool of globalism.

        1. Vox Populi says:

          Wahhabi’s are a key proxy for western destabilization policy in the Muslim world since the Soviet era in Afghanistan. US created them and feted them in the White House and called them the “equals of our founding fathers”. Osama Bin Ladin was as fatherly as George Washington, the slave owner.

          1. Icarus Tanović says:

            Yo man, you really believe that some guy named ‘Osama Bin Laden’ really existed. Maybe some random guy not related at all.
            There are so little photos of him, because supposedly he didn’t wanted to be photographed because it is ‘haram’. Wow! And more childish excuses such is that one?
            They, CIA, find some random guy, thanks God we’re haven PS these days, photographed and shoot him couple of times and told us all that they killed him in spec op in Fuckistan and throw the punk in the ocean.
            Im mean, those are it is fairytales.
            For example, do you know who wrote the book Exorcist? A CIA operative guy, a propagandist, that was directed towards eastern block and against Muslims.
            Double check your fire.

          2. Vox Populi says:

            The CIA and Mossad work through Hollywood and have created a lot of fictional characters. Osama and Baghdadi being two cartoon like characters suited for US ignorant population and wide sections of Europeans also believe their hype. But the Wahhabi headchoppers are for real and a key cog in the US and Zionist global murder and terror machine. They even kill their own people, just look at Syria and the Khashoggi hacksaw murder in Turkey. On the balance though almost all of US accounts are plain lies, like the so-called operation to kill “Osama” in Abbotabad.

            https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/8c9e296a8150ec13488e10f74204f956892e1474fdaf24b25a1c73e6330b08c2.jpg

          3. Icarus Tanović says:

            Indeed carton like villains. But Wahhabis are sissies that are as you said real danger to Whole World.
            Why cowards? Because they only attack soft targets, civilians eledrly and kids, but as you can see avoid direct confrontation in Yemen, because it is sure they’re gonna lose.
            Yes, they are key players in Zio/USA terror and War on humankind.
            Most often theirs victims are true Muslims and kids, adolescents, naive youngsters from the west that succumb to that Satanic faith and ideology that insists that is ‘as Islamic As it gets’ which is tottaly opposite from the truth. The goal is to create an army of 100 million monstrosities.
            That is, CIA school of brainwashing.

        2. klove and light says:

          spot on!

      2. Vox Populi says:

        Economic collapse = societal collapse. It’s deliberate so that we can have “order out of chaos”, as in the globalist Jew New World Order, also known as the tyranny of the ruling sociopaths.

    2. Vox Populi says:

      It is not Iraq alone that is being looted. An independent EU foreign relations representative report even stated that :

      US Forces Reportedly ‘Steal’ Syrian Crude Oil ‘On Daily Basis’

      The theft of Iraqi oil is even on a greater scale and causing economic havoc in the country.

  7. Frank says:

    US and its vassals invaded Iraq twice, sanctioned it to death and instituted a brutal occupation and then expect that the Iraqis should just submit to neo-imperialist plunder of their oil and destruction of their ancient culture. Frankly, it is surprising that there have not been more resistance attacks against the occupation savages.

    1. tzatz says:

      Ancient culture? lol

      We already have the recipes … eh?

      1. Ashok Varma says:

        First stole their lands and now even stealing recipes, you Jews are disgusting.

      2. Concrete Mike says:

        Chug.
        Enjoy!

  8. Peter Moy says:

    This attack was only a morsel of what will come in greater amounts, very shortly. I predict that some big payback will come just in time for Christmas Day or New Year’s Day. People in Washington, DC and the politicians in the lapdog countries seem to have already forgotten the murder of the IRGC general in January and the recent assassination of the nuclear scientist near Tehran. Some rockets and missiles will soon bring them back to their brain-damaged, arrogant, despicable, murderous senses.

    1. Great Khan says:

      AmeriKan fat loser kill many Iraqian brother, now must pay price.

    I love c-ram’s sound..ı decide to set my phone ring tone..

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CabBkI5Lg7Y&feature=emb_logo

    1. Cromwell says:

      I would rather see a 155mm Howitzer Shell slamming into that base

      1. Servet Köseoğlu says:

        107 mm rockets from portable launcher more logical…

        1. Ashok Varma says:

          But they are slower and less explosive. 155mm artillery has higher velocity, lower trajectory and can not be intercepted. These rockets so far are work of amateurs and just a warning, the real resistance is capable of far greater damage to the US occupation forces.

          1. Servet Köseoğlu says:

            how do you think to bring,set and 155 mm artillery in ıraq without noticed?

          2. Ashok Varma says:

            Truck mounted 155 mm and other howitzers are readily available and the flat bed trucks can easily be camouflaged as delivery trucks. Baghdad is a sprawling city and these truck mounted artillery pieces can be deployed even 20-30 kms from the Green Zone. India exports 155mm Dhanush artillery pieces and the Iraqi PMU are the military anyway and can get their hands on anything. Even 105mm truck mounted artillery will do the job and its is impossible to detect if mounted on a civilian boarded up truck.

      2. Frank says:

        Bound to happen sooner than later.

    2. Band Itkoitko says:

      Sounds like a prolonged fart and not very efficient while quite expensive. If you put such a tone on your phone and it comes from your pocket, everyone would think you have a very gassy situation.

      1. Servet Köseoğlu says:

        of course ı will not put..sound is really gross..but interesting as well..

        1. Ashok Varma says:

          But the interception system quite clearly did not work even on rather crude rockets as evidenced by the sheer amount of debris and damage done to the buildings and cars. If the resistance starts lobbying artillery shells and mortars from closer ranges with low trajectory, the costly embassy would qualify as very expensive archeological digs rivaling the past riches of Mesopotamia.

      2. HiaNd says:

        Actually most expensive ”fart” that exists on the planet.

    3. Captain Freedom says:

      it does a nice silvester show… especially since sale of fireworks is outlawed in some countries due to the Great Cough

      1. tzatz says:

        A Russian creep … silvester lol

    4. World_Eye says:

      its from a game

      1. Servet Köseoğlu says:

        right but same sound..

        1. tzatz says:

          lol … Ya f/kn goof

  10. HiaNd says:

    You are doing great job guys!
    Keep up good work!
    It is like spiting in their coffee every day, enough to ruin their day and drive them crazy.
    And if you get lucky you might even kill few of them and ruin plenty of cars…
    While they will spend MILLIONS on their air defenses ammunition and repairs of material damage.

    1. tzatz says:

      You’re so concerned about $$$

      Let the Americans and Israelis worry about how much they spend AND what they spend it on … hello?

      Your corrupt cousins in the Slavic lands … are eating at the ‘big table’ while leaving y’all day old scraps … eh?

      You’re poor and don’t understand ??

      Jews and Americans know … eh?

      next

      1. Frank says:

        Frankly, the only thing the evil Jews know is how to commit crimes and steal Goyim money. even Shakespeare had it right with the repulsive pound of gentile flesh Shylock parasite. Jews are a cancer for the planet and the dumb Americans are their prime victim.

      2. Concrete Mike says:

        Go fuck yourself mr know it all!

        We all know americans being in Iraq is a mistake. A mistake built on a foundation of lies!

        America is broke, broke as fuck. I dont give a shit how many anti russian slurss you cant throw in a sentence, as that is smokescreens. At the end of the day, america went into iraq in 2003 at the top, and came out a dinosaur, obsolete.

        You can throw all the money you want at a problem and it wont fix it. Thats the problem when you live in an echo chamber, you come with the same solutions over and over.

        I expect your going to blame putin for this?

        Especially when i KNOW your on CERB.

        fucken bum get a job!

      Kepoot,america has aidz

      1. Frank says:

        It has Jews that gave it aids as they are now doing in Dubai. The UAE police chief just yesterday said:

        Israeli men going in droves to UAE to “sleep with prostitutes”

        1. Ashok Varma says:

          Jews did the same in Mumbai, but now feel unsafe in India as the public has turned on them after organ harvesting cases in poor Dalit areas,

  12. Lone Ranger says:

    I could write funny stuff here too but I wont.
    Instead if you are an American ask yourself the question, are you fighting the wars you should?
    If not it would be the time to man up and take your country back.
    Safe trip back home.

    1. Frank says:

      Frankly, the brainwashed rednecks are shedding blood for Zionism and bankrupted themselves. The sapping occupation of Iraq is the prime reason for US rapid decline. They are stealing as much Iraqi oil as they can, but with a growing Iraqi population and destroyed civilian infrastructure, the Iraqi backlash is building fast. There are reports that China is now in contact with various resistance groups and intends to bleed the US in both Iraq and Afghanistan.

      1. Lcr34 says:

        “There are reports that China is now in contact with various resistance groups and intends to bleed the US in both Iraq and Afghanistan.” Unsubstantiated report. Iran, Russia, China normally gets the stick. 19 years of Afghanistan occupation and the Mighty USA failed to uproot the Taliban. Once American forces withdraw them Talibans gonna swoop down from the hills and plunge the nation into chaos. All the pro-western would be target. What the US gonna do? Nothing. Just like what they did to their pro-western puppet muppet Pashinyan. They cut the cord and hung them out to dry.

        1. Jimmy Jim says:

          GAS THE KIKERS & ISOLATE COVID!

  13. World_Eye says:

    ups cram fireworks wasn’t good

    1. Ashok Varma says:

      The system failed as clearly shown by the damage done by a few primitive rockets. Any serious attack on the multi-billion dollar embassy will be devastating. With such dangerous working conditions, the US would be better advised to withdraw from Iraq and the region in general as its occupation is causing resistance.

  14. Tommy Jensen says:

    A proof we need to stay longer because everybody can see for themselves the War on Terror is not finished.

      1. verner says:

        yep – for the undereducated poor fuckers from the fly over states it’s either the marines and the possibility of an early death or if not, the street panhandling for the next few hours or staying home cooking meth and the possibility of a lengthy stay in one of the privatized prisons all around – what a shithole country the disunited states of undistinguished morons has turned into. they should be ashamed and an odious jew, like jared kushner (whose papa paid 2 million bucks to harvard for his son’s admittance) can, as a private person and senior adviser to potus, father in law trump, extort 1 billion bucks from qatar to save his papa’s crumbling real estate company. what a larf (and don’t forget that he tried to pass on nuke technology to his buddy mohammed bin salman -who bought a fake leonardo da vinci at the trifling sum of 450million bucks) you just couldn’t make it up!

    1. tzatz says:

      The US should stay as long as the Iraqi PM thinks the US has a role to play … in preserving the democratically elected government … full stop

      PM Kadhimi is a moderate … he’s balancing between an independent albeit pro-Iraqi / pro-Western outlook AND Iranian hegemony which is attempting to subvert Iraqi independence … ?

      1. Ashok Varma says:

        You are an idiot obviously, Kadhimi spent most of his adult life in Iran with the Badr Brigades. His children live there. Then you wonder why you are scared of Hezbollah.

    Did the US consider what would happen when those CIWS 20mm projectiles come down on civilians and what damage they will do?

    1. Ashok Varma says:

      Iraq is suing the US for using depleted uranium shells on children and schools.

      Iraqis and former GIs to sue in US over depleted uranium on civilian areas.. More than 3,000 British and American soldiers are now exposed to cancer as almost 950,000 DU missiles and shells fired. Iraqi authorities estimate that over 200,000 civilians in Baghdad, Basra and Fallujah were targeted by US DU shells and missiles, and several thousand have died since then and children are still born with deformities. Human Rights Watch has listed US and NATO as war criminals.

    2. Volker says:

      Usually, they give a total FUCK! The AmeriCunts gave a total FUCK about the 2 mio murdered Iraqis, they gave a total FUCK when they groomed sponsored armed all those wahhabi/jihadi proxy/merc/terrorist to destroy Syria murdered hundred thounsends Syrians on their behest, they give total FUCK when their KSA savages murdered starve Yemeni civilians to death with ‘their’ consent+assistence…..I could go on endlessly…past present and ‘highly likely’ with ‘near certainty’ in the future as well.

  16. Icarus Tanović says:

    Nonetheless every single one hit theirs targets. As we can see from these photos. They’ve just gave us fancy and expensive fireworks show, and thanks for that. How thwy know? Did Hezbollah phoned them and told them:’We are gonna shel this, this and that coordinates in green zone.’ in advance? Don’t think so. Americans hiding theirs casualties as we can see.
    It is obvious that these are mortar shells of 82mm and they hit every designated target with high precision. One of them even exploded right on that ventilation intake, so that’s even cooler for those that hides underground.
