Baghdad: There has been a major attack on the Military Airport in Iraq. Here, the US-led coalition army army airport has been targeted. In such a situation, about 10 rockets were fired on this military-important base on Wednesday. Coalition forces and Iraqi security forces have shared information about this. But it is not yet clear whether there was any casualty in this attack or not. At the same time, several attacks were carried out by rockets at Ain al-Assad military airport at 7.20 in the morning, the spokesman of the coalition army, Col. Wayne Marotto, said in a statement.
Launch pad used for attack
According to Colonel Wayne Marotto on the attack on the military airport, Iraqi security forces are leading the investigation into the attack. Meanwhile, a statement from the Iraqi army has been revealed. It also states that no major damage has been done in this attack and that the security forces have detected the launch pad used for the attack.
Let me tell you, the rocket attack happened here, when Pope Francis is going to visit Iraq two days later. The Pope is also scheduled to visit Baghdad, southern Iraq and Irbil during this time.
Air raid targeting
In fact, the US last week launched airstrikes targeting the bases of Iran-backed militia organizations near the Syria-Iraq border. Ever since the US attack, the counterattack was being feared that the attack might be in response to the US attack.
In such a situation, after the US action, the Pentagon said that the air raid was done keeping in mind Iran-backed Qatb Hezbollah and Katab Syed al-Shuhada at the border control point.
Further Pentagon spokesman John Kirby also said, "The attack is a response to the attack on US and coalition forces in Iraq." If needed, America will continue to carry out such action even further.
