A military camp of the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) in the western province of al-Anbar was targeted early on September 22 by a unknown warplane, according to the RT TV.
“An unknown warplane bombed early on Sunday the al-Mursanat Airport’s camp in the province of al-Anbar … The strike came a day after the end of Victory Will Operation, which the PMU took part in,” a source in the PMU told the Russian TV.
The source told the RT that the camp is being run by the PMU’s 13th Brigade, commonly known as the al-Tufuf Brigade.
The PMU has not released an official statement on the attack, so far. However, Qasim Musleh, the commander of PMU operations in al-Anbar confirmed that al-Mursanat Airport’s camp was struck by an unknown warplane.
A source affiliated with Saudi Arabia and the UAE reported that the airstrike was carried out by an unmanned combat aerial vehicle (UCAV).
The PMU had held Israel and the U.S. responsible for previous airstrikes on its positions and personnel. Nevertheless, some observers are now suggesting that the al-Mursanat Airport’s camp strike may have been conducted by Saudi Arabia in response to the September 14 Abqaiq–Khurais attack.
