Two drones were shot down while trying to attack the Ain al-Assad military base in Iraq, which is used by the forces of the international anti-terrorist coalition led by the United States. This was reported on Sunday by Agence France-Presse with reference to the Iraqi army.
According to him, the incident occurred on Sunday night a few hours after one of the missiles hit the airport in Baghdad. It is noted that the damage to the airport was not caused, there were no injuries.
Ain al-Asad is located 110 km west of Baghdad and is one of the largest military bases hosting US troops in Iraq. Previously, it has repeatedly been the target of similar attacks, in which Washington accuses the pro-Iranian groups operating in the country of involvement.
