Rocket Salvo Hits Iraqi Base Hosting U.S. Troops (Photos)

Donate

UPDATE: 3 US-led coalition personnel were killed in the incident.

***

On March 11 afternoon, a rocket salvo hit the Iraq’s Camp Taji where troops of the U.S.-led coalition are known to be stationed.

Iraq’s Security Media Cell said ten rockets landed in the military camp, which is located in a rural region approximately 27 km north of the capital, Baghdad. From its side, the U.S.-led coalition said the camp was struck with fifteen rockets. Nevertheless, the attack didn’t result in any losses.

Within a few minutes, Iraqi security forces uncovered a rocket launcher with 40 107 mm barrels near Camp Taji. The launcher was installed in the back of Kia Bongo truck. Three rockets were still loaded into the launcher.


The last few months witnessed several rocket attacks on Iraqi bases hosting U.S. troops as well as on Washington’s diplomatic mission in Baghdad. Most of these attacks didn’t result in any losses.

The only deadly rocket strike targeted the K1 base on December 27 of 2019. A U.S. military contractor was killed. The U.S. military responded with a series of airstrikes on Iraq and Syria, killing dozens of Iraqi fighters.

The U.S. believe that Iraqi Shiite groups affiliated with Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) were behind at least some of these rocket attacks. However, there is no evidence supporting these accusations, as for now.

    Allegedly 2 US Service Personnel and 1 UK, with casualties. They were asked to leave.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      They are bringing in 105mm mountain howitzers from Afghanistan to support their alCIAda terrorists in Syria. The Americunts will face a major war of resistance in the whole region soon.

      • AM Hants

        Saw that, the uninvited invaders bringing in heavy weapons.

    • FlorianGeyer

      They will be leaving for home now :)

      • AM Hants

        They have had a hissy fit first. Will need more body bags before they take the hint and demands to leave. I wonder why the need such a large Embassy in Iraq?

        • FlorianGeyer

          The embassy compound in Iraq is a staging post for CIA black opps, drugs and arms trafficking globally.

          “More than a million kilograms of cargo were shipped from Baghdad to different parts of the world, reveals US embassies procurement documents.

          Mysterious cargo shipments from the US Embassy in Baghdad to other American embassies and consulates around the world have been revealed on a Wikileaks’ database. ”

          • AM Hants

            I seriously do not understand why anybody would wish to host an Embassy for the US? Especially when Benghazi exposed so much of their dirty work.

            Thanks for the link.

            Darling, as stated, I have been commenting on these forums since 2014, with over 150,000 upvotes, when combining my two user names. So the regulars are fully aware of my history, how I post and what concerns me, which funnily enough concerns many other posters. Some stories need sharing, when their are no articles covering the story, or it is not yet in the public domain.

            Florian? What a beautiful name. Why was I responding to a public discussion? LOL I suggest you two swap inboxes if you require a private discussion. The jig is up, honey. For whatever reason you seem to want to disseminate information. I find it interesting actually. It’s so obvious and transparent.

            Have you seen the Global Research Article, with regards the C Virus timeline and where it originated from? Not into the virus, owing to believing it is man made and from the usual mobsters, but, did like the article below. Just be careful who you invite to staged events.

  • d’Artagnan

    US and NATO brutal occupation of Iraq is now well close to two decades and has brought nothing but misery for the Iraqi people and the region. Growing resistance is a natural consequence of US policies aimed at the destruction and destabilization of Arab and Muslim nations that challenge the Zionist monstrosity. It is surprising that a wider resistance is yet to take off.

    Looks like the same bullshit truck…

    • PZIVJ

      The previous truck had 3 rows pointed towards the rear. This is a different design. Hit the launch button (maybe with time delay or cell phone call) and take off in another vehicle.

      • Albert Pike

        Sure it’s a different truck, but again there is no adjustment of any horizontal angle possible. Therefore – it’s useless with that thing your rocket goes somewhere into no where. Also how do you make sure your truck is parked right?
        So no that’s all bull, that’s a fake for an escalation against Iran – who is, what a surprise – Corona sick…

        • PZIVJ
          • Albert Pike

            No I don’t see you as a troll. And this virus thing is a very sad story. Even many so called ‘truther’ talk a lot of bull about it. Even the ex CIA expert Robert Steel was and is calling it a fake. So if anybody fell for him, then he might have treated it as a fake, and took no precautions. Also Iran also has a masonic Hojjatieh Society, which has members in high places – so they might also know the concept of a masonic predetermined war. This, sadly, has to be always kept in mind…

  • nick1111

    Get the f… out of Iraq

  • verner

    good good and do it again and again till the fuckers lose faith – excellent concept, load the truck and position it for the attack fire away, walk away. wish they had better missiles/rockets and would aim for the americans in the green zone.

    bongo truck hahahahah wtf YANKEE GET OUT OF IRAQ!!!!
