Rocket Attack Hits Air Base Hosting US Troops In Southern Iraq

On February 20 afternoon, a rocket attack targeted Balad Air Base in the southern Iraqi province of Saladin. The base is known to be hosting US troops.

A security source told RT that at least three rockets fell inside the air base, injuring two people. The nationalities of the casualties are yet to be revealed.

According to the Sabereen News, the rockets, which were of the 107 mm caliber, hit the former headquarters of the US Sally Porter company in Balad Air Base. US-led coalition troops are currently using the building.

The Telegram channel, which is close to pro-Iranian armed factions in Iraq, claimed that one of the wounded persons was a Sri Lankan contractor working for the coalition.

The attack on Balad Air Base was most likely carried out by one of the many pro-Iranian factions which were formed in Iraq over the last two years.

Earlier this week, a large-scale rocket attack targeted Erbil International Airport. A contractor was killed and nine other people, including a US service member, were wounded.

The recent wave of attacks on the US-led coalition in Iraq is meant as a response to the assassination of Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, Deputy-Commander of the Popular Mobilization Units, and Iran’s Quds Force Commander Maj. Gen. Qassim Soleimani. Both commanders were killed in a US drone strike more than a year ago.

The resistance forces are consolidating and the tempo of attacks will increase in line with regional developments. The Ansarallah are about to enter Marib.

2nd world war tactics of america dont work anymore so building bases and thinking that they are all secure is only a delusion because these bases might be leveled and raided whenever iraqis seek to

Adam Prisbit

they worked well against german nazi savage they work against shia mullah proxy militia barbarian!

farbat

why do you agree to your own nonsense and upvote yourself are you a shizo?

Jimmy Jim

UPVOTE OVENS!

farbat

man you are one delusional person

Leif Oskar Zetterstrøm

If you choose to be in Palestine rather than return to your homeland in Eastern Europe when the Great War begins, the sound of the bulldozer may be the last thing you hear before everything turns black.

farbat

man the jews arent even coherent they are infighting right now heavily

farbat

this is a racist society which brings in all different ethnicities from all around the world hates on them in different fashion and tells them afterwards that “you are all the same people”

farbat

they claim they are all jews and therefore all equal but if that was the case than the zionist usurper entity would have less homeless than it has

farbat

the biggest numbers of homeless jews in the world are in the zionist usurper entity there are 0 homeless jews inside iran for example

farbat

the zionist usurper entity will be the death of the jews

Adam Prisbit

farbat

cechas vodobenikov

biscuit writes CIA lies—newest CIA alias at SF

farbat

the usa uses less advanced(precise) rocket artillery so who cares

farbat

if the usa can show a similar precision with this cost effectiveness than they can open their mouths but they cant so their words are hot air and really its amazing that small iraqi militias take on american empire nowadays and the jews talk bold as if they are doing well

BMWA1

Katusha attacks have forced base contraction in Irak… a score or more 25 dollar rockets for 25000000 base fair exchange rate…plus hit-n-run as the rack can be welded for about 20 Polish Zwotys.

Just Me

Nah, he is just a attention seeking Jew rat PUNK and even too stupid for CIA inbreds.

Arch Bungle

Seems to be working fine every time it hit’s a U.S base and Embassy in Iraq!

A contractor here, contractor there, pretty soon they’re knocking off big numbers …

JIMI JAMES

The only way to defeat master bush+ new world order once and for all,is force them out for good!
Question remains,where are they whom boasted over all the years,yet to prove proper saviours?
I reserve the right,to let the truth be the better judge of events,seens none to date ousted the cias!

Blas de Lezo

Old, senile sleepy Joe is such a weak çöwɑrd. Iran militias keep attacking US forces and Biden gifts Iran with a diplomatic victory that will soon lift sanctions and have billions of cash flowing to Iran’s economy to fund their military, the IRGC terrorists, their ballistic, cruise and guided missile programs.
Netanyahu, AIPAC and their puppets in the government and in the military must be having a nervous breakdown. Trump 2024.

Fog of War

I was taking your comment seriously till this ” Trump 2024. “.

Peter Jennings

The Iraqi people are just having a bit of fun, and seeing what works best against the invaders.

US bases are a godsend for Iraqi missile development.

Cromwell

They should obliterate the place with GRADs

Adam Prisbit

try it! CRAM shoot them all down!!

Patriot deploy in Erbil shoot them all down

Then US AIRFORCE OBLITERATE SHIA TERRORISTS

farbat

hahahaha sure

farbat

you do understand that cram cant handle 360 degree threats specially in hybrid form

farbat

it says in the name counter artillery rocket and missile system but what about a hybrid use of those in 360 degree and what about adding small drone swarms to the mix

farbat

iam just playing with you but clearly coordination of direct hits by anti material rifles would already do it

farbat

small low flying loitering ammo= death of cram system

Adam Prisbit

bring it on then! my friend USA CRAP and patriot PAC3 wait for shia terror rocket

Just Me

But it can’t be done, that is why it hasn’t been.

Oh look, it’s Adam PISSbit. Go suck a foreskin, jew.

cechas vodobenikov

US response: turn off electricity in Texas other southern states

farbat

i remember the days of this interview and i remember when the world thought iranians were just the smallest joke in the world but in future we will say what the world will do going forward and not some clueless fools who are repeating the same mistakes again and again and again and still to iran it doesnt matter if or when at all it gets nuclear weapons because it will outpace you all controlled by globalism so you should have treated iran like china from the very beginning and have some respect but that time is over

Sackur is a Jew and a shill for the Zionist empire. It’s obvious from all his interviews.

Marandi is a seeker of truth, a rational man who has been consistent for years.
