3 rockets struck Iraq’s Balad air base, 80 km north of the capital Baghdad, Iraq’s Security Media Cell announced on August 13.

During the US war in Iraq, Balad was the second-largest US base in the country. It still houses some US forces. No casualties were reported as a result of the August 13 attack.

In the recent months, a number of rocket and mortar attacks hit bases hosting US-led coalition forces and the area in Baghdad, where the U.S. embassy is located. The United States blames Iran-backed armed groups. The attacks increased in response to the US assassination of Iran’s Qods Fores commander Qassem Soleimani by a drone strike in the Baghdad International Airport in early Jauary 2020.

US barbarians and their colonies–UK, Denmark station troops in Iraq; Germany no longer does…they have already been reduced to hiding in their fortresses, fearing death—to insecure to challenge poorly equipped militias in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, etc
