On July 5, the U.S. Ain al-Asad military base in the Iraqi Anbar province came under rocket attack.

According to the initial report by the Spokesman for Operation Inherent Resolve Col. Wayne Marotto, three rockets targeted the territory of the base causing no casualties, only the material damage.

According to the sources close to Iranian-baked militants, not 3 but 8 107-mm rockets landed on the Ain al-Assad base.

Iranian-backed groups were likely behind the attack. Last year, they stepped up their operations against US forces in response to the assassination of Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, Deputy-Commander of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units, and Commander of Iran’s Quds Force, Qassim Soleimani.

The Ain al-Assad Air Base hosting U.S. troops was targeted on several occasions in the last few months. The last such attack took place on June 20.

The attack came a day after a US convoy was subject to an IED attack the Baghdad governorate.

The escalation between the U.S. forces and Iranian-backed factions in Iraq and Syria was caused by U.S. airstrikes against Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units in the Iraqi-Syrian border on June 27th. The next day rocket fire targeted U.S. military base near Omar oil field in Wyria’s deir Ezzor. On July 2, Iraqi security forces foiled a rocket attack on U.S. Camp Victory in Baghdad.

The last attack came amid reports of another attack on U.S. forces near Omar oil field that were denied by U.S. military spokesman.

America hate muslim


Seems the Iraqis are not too keen on the continued occupation and oppression by the Jews’ US Tyranny wardog. Unfortunately, as Iraq is the staging area for the Jews’ US Tyranny’s coming war on Iran, they are going to have to endure more.


The globalist jackals are so hated they are afraid to come out of their compounds. The Iraqis greet them with rockets.


If the planes who attact the legitime resistence from Irak, came from cariers in the mediterian, they have the right to target and sink those carriers. ask brther Vladimir for a hypersonic missil.

USAF should hit back 10000x as hard. Destroy all iranian militia targets in Iraq and Syria for 1 year straight! Nonstop bombing missions!


You’re an I.D.I.O.T. and a clusterFUCK — Cut down on TV and those alligator steaks.


shekel hoarder from gringostan, go drive your 85 toyota pickup truck off the nearest cliff, you bloated whore.


More attacks will come as they smell blood. They know u.s. got its ass handed to them in Afghanistan. Right after Vietnam, Kissinger went to China to buy time and there won’t be a China to buy time this time. In hindsight, Vietnam started u.s. irreversible demise. They had to “open up” China and China was willing to go along with that and buy time themselves.

Vietnam broke America forced it off the gold standard, as Nixon told his Japanese counterpart when he met him seeking for Japan to fund our bases saying “we are broke” and so we were and are, after all you reap what you sow.
