A shadowy Iraqi armed group that is thought to be affiliated with Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) has attacked an air base in Kuwait where US forces are known to be deployed.
In a statement released on August 19, the group, which calls itself the Islamic Resistance in Iraq – al-Warithin Formation, said that it attacked Ali Al Salem Air Base that is located in the central region of Kuwait, some 37 kilometers away from the border with Iraq, with a squadron of “al-Qassim” suicide drones on August 12.
The group said that the attack was a response to the assassination of Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, Deputy-Commander of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units, and Commander of the IRGC’s Quds Force, Qassim Soleimani more than two years ago.
The two leaders were killed in a US drone strike near Baghdad International Airport. Back then, it was reported that the combat drone that carried out the strike took off from Ali Al Salem Air Base. Kuwait has since denied these reports.
“We renew our pledge to our martyred leaders, Hajj Qassim Soleimani and Hajj Jamal [Abu Mahdi] al-Muhandis, that we will target everyone who participated and aided in your assassination,” the al-Warithin Formation said in its statement.
The group released footage showing the launch of one of the al-Qassim drones that targeted Ali Al Salem Air Base. The suicide drone is copy of Iran’s Ababil-2.
Kuwait didn’t report any attack on the air base, which currently hosts the 386th Air Expeditionary Wing of the US Air Force. However, new satellite images confirmed that the air base was struck. The images showed large scorch marks near one of the base’s main facilities.

Pro-Iranian groups in Iraq attacked a number of supply convoys of the US-led coalition near the border line with Kuwait in the past. Nevertheless, this was their first confirmed direct attack on Kuwaiti territory.
While Kuwait appears to be planning to ignore the attack, the US could escalate by attacking pro-Iranian groups in Iraq.
LOSER IRAQIS CANT EVEN KILL ANY AMERICUNTS. HOW PATHETIC. THEY ARE GETTING KILLED ANYWAY
The fact that their drones made it that close to the base shows they have better drones that will fuck that base up. Don’t worry they’re just building up the attacks
People disregard these attacks without considering that the intelligence they gather is more valuable than the attack itself. Same goes with failed drone and missile attacks on Russia … who knows what data on Russian air defences and EW is uploaded to NATO before they are shot down.
Nor Iran nor Russia use their new missiles, rockets, or drones as you know. The data they are getting wouldn’t help them much, trust me. Every year there are new systems get added to drones, missiles, EW, and air defense systems.
“The suicide drone is copy of Iran’s Ababil-2.” It is not the same drone, they know that as well so the data they got aren’t beneficial. That is IF they got any useful data from those attacks.
The same goes with NATO attacks on Russian forces in UA. The best way to defend yourself is to make sure your enemy fully knows they are going to get hit harder. The best case to study is Hezbollah and Zion-IDF. Zion would love to destroy Lebanon but they can’t because they fully know if they attack Hezbollah/Lebanon they get destroyed by them.
What good do those data do for NATO when Russia fire nukes up their fuking ass?
In the case of Iran, its missile program has been what scared the US and Zion the most. Also, the fact Iran is growing no matter what they do… Zion, Wahhabi, and yanquis shit themself after they lift Iran sanctions – Iran grows stupidly without sanctions.
They are training and doing drill for future large attack if US scum does any dirty play in Iraq territory. This will make US think now about their strategy. US is coward army like Zionist . They are afraid of strong attack on resistance.
Yea, the americunts look like idiots there.
good bomb them to hell,its the only language they understand

Wasn’t it Kuwait who were side drilling into Saddam’s oil fields? Now they allow foreigners to launch deadly attacks into a neighbouring country? I can’t think where the admin get their ideas.:)
