Two Unidentified Drones Attacked Iraqi Air Base Hosting US Troops (Photos)

Illustrative image.

Early on April 8, two unidentified armed drones attacked Ayn al-Assad Air Base in the western Iraqi province of al-Anbar.

RT’s reporter in Iraq said that one of the unidentified drones was shot down over the air base, while the other crashed near one of the runways. Hundreds of US troops are still present in the air base, supposedly to train Iraqi government forces.

In a statement, the US-led coalition confirmed that an armed drone was shot down by its air-defense systems after approaching Ayn al-Assad Air Base.

“At approximately 1:46 a.m., April 8, U.S. air defense systems shot down an armed unmanned aerial system entering Al Asad Air Base, Iraq.

There are no reported injuries or damage and all Coalition personnel are accounted for. The incident is under investigation,” the statement reads.

Iraqi sources shared photos showing the wreckage of the drone shot down by the coalition, which was apparently made of carbon fibers.

Ayn al-Assad Air Base has come under attack on several occasions since the assassination of Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, Deputy-Commander of the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units, and Iran’s Quds Force Commander Maj. Gen. Qassim Soleimani more than two years ago. Pro-Iranian factions in Iraq claimed responsibility for some of the attacks.

Despite facing regular attacks in Iraq and Syria, the US appears to be determined to keep its forces in both countries under the pretext of fighting ISIS.

LOL on the pretext of fighting terrorist, they installed via proxy. All the problems in ME and globally were collectively created by the US, Zionist and vassals. I hope Russia will see through the West Economic Warfare, Bio-warfare and everything else they decide to unleash on her. I believe they’ll emerge stronger and their alliance with China will be the catalyst for the American decline.

Since the Ukraine invasion and destruction of many of the bio-labs, Russia’s covid cases have plummeted drastically. There are only about 280 deaths now compared to a constant 750 per day before the attack in late February. No correlation some would say? Yeah, and Jews don’t like diamonds.

The “Global Britain” group must be stopped. The old trans Atlantic British Empire is bankrupt and can not be ressurect. Only war, starvation, green fascism, under the rubric of the Great Reset will put our species on the path of extinction, but that is fine with the satanic gods of the decaying Olympus. They don’t care about humans; they don’t even care about each other as proven by their behavior throughout history. Go to laroucheorganization.nationbuilder.com. Do you have the moral fitness to survive?
