Two Armed Drones Shot Down Over Iraq’s Baghdad (Photos)

Early on June 16, security forces of Baghdad Operations Command shot down two armed drones over the southern outskirts of the Iraqi capital.

In two separate statements, the Iraqi Security Media Cell said that the first drone was shot down over al-Rashid Military Camp, while the second one was shot down a few minutes later over the Alkrtan district.

According to Iraqi sources, the first drone fired a small, unguided munition at al-Rashid Military Camp before being shot down. No losses were reported.

The side responsible for launching the drones is yet to be identified. Nevertheless, the second drone appears to be a copy of the US AeroVironment Switchblade small loitering munition. Pro-Iranian groups in Iraq may have copied the system, which was used against them in Syria.

In the last few months, a number of drone attacks targeted Iraqi bases hosting US troops. In the most recent attack, which took place on June 14, an drone targeted Victoria Base in Baghdad International Airport. Washington usually blames pro-Iranian groups for such attacks.

US troops are not known to be present in al-Rashid Military Camp or Alkatran district. However, US intelligence agents may have been the real target of the two drones. Another possibility is that the drones were being tested. The Sabereen News Agency, which is linked to pro-Iranian groups in Iraq, hinted at this possibility.

Japan was shafted by the US only 35 years ago, now the US is on all four begging Japan for forgiveness and promising Japan US reopening to made in Japan, but Japanese now find it easier to sell Japanese Yen as a safe haven when USD falls.
