Two drones destroyed above a base housing US troops in Iraq

The Iraqi army said on Sunday that two drones were destroyed above a base housing US troops, one month after the same base was targeted by an armed drone. 

The US military’s C-RAM defence system was activated to shoot down both the drones above the Ain al-Assad base, located in Iraq’s western desert, the Iraqi military said. 

A few hours earlier a rocket was shot down above Baghdad airport, “without causing casualties or damage,” Colonel Wayne Marotto, spokesman for the US-led military coalition in Iraq said. The coalition was sent to Iraq to help the country’s military fight the Islamic State jihadist group, a campaign that Baghdad declared won in late 2017. 

The US has blamed Iran-linked Iraqi factions for rocket attacks against Iraqi installations housing its soldiers. Since the start of this year, there have been 39 attacks against US interests in Iraq.
