Late on July 23, a drone attack targeted a base hosting troops of the US-led coalition near the capital of the Iraqi Kurdistan Region.

The base, commonly referred to as “al-Harir” after a nearby village, is located around 70 km to the northeast of the city of Erbil.

“On July 23, 2021 at 1:23 am an Unmanned Aerial System impacted a Coalition base in Kurdistan. There were no casualties and no damage as a result of the attack. The United States and Coalition Forces will stay vigilant and maintain the inherent right to self-defense,” Col. Wayne Marotto, a spokesman for the coalition, told the Rudaw Media Network.

A newly-founded group calling itself Liwa al-Tha’arin [the Rebel Brigade] claimed responsibility for the attack. In a brief statement, the pro-Iranian group claimed that the base was targeted with several drones.

According to the Sabereen News channel on Telegram, the target of the attack was a hangar where drones operated by the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) were stored.

The Telegram channel claimed that the US-led coalition base was targeted with a 27-kilogram, fixed-wing suicide drone dubbed “Murad-4”.

This was not the first such attack. On June 26, a drone swarm attacked a number of targets near the US Consulate in Erbil. Back then, Washington condemned the attack and responded with a series of airstrikes that targeted Iranian-backed forces on the Iraqi-Syrian border.

Perverted and obese are two common traits amongst many americans. They are even brainwashed to celebrate their idiocy and lack of discipline through social media, hollywood, MSM etc.

The newly developed Resistance Technology is secret, yet It is rumored among the upper echelon that paper airplanes coated with covid-19 delta-2 are soon to be deployed. Pray for the holy ones!

‘hanger’ is for clothes. ‘hangar’ is for drones.


“The United States and Coalition Forces will stay vigilant”.

The famous american “coalition partners”. A pathetic attempt to legitimize american, british and ultimately vatican funded degeneracy.
