Just a few hours after clashes between the Israeli Defense Forces and Hezbollah on the Lebanese-Israeli contact line, rockets struck US-operated military bases in Iraq.

The first strike hot Camp Speicher, located near Tikrit, causing a large explosion on the site.

At the same time, at least three rockets targeted another US-operated military base – Camp Taji, located near Baghdad. According to local media, one rocket hit an Iraqi helicopter while another landed in an artillery weapon depot. The third rocket landed in the 2nd Air Force Squadron but did not explode.

Local sources claim that the strikes came in response to a drone strike on the al-Saqer military camp, south of Baghdad, on July 26. This camp is operated by the Popular Mobilization Units. This branch of the Iraqi Armed Forces is often described by Washington and mainstream media as Iranian proxies and even terrorists.
