Drone attacks military base at Baghdad airport
A drone strike on Monday targeted a military base housing U.S. forces in the Baghdad International airport area, inflicting no casualties, security sources said.
The drone dropped bombs in the early hours of the day, striking the outer fence of the military base, sources told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.
On Wednesday evening, three drones attacked the military base at the airport in southwestern Baghdad, and one of the drones was shot down, according to a statement by the Iraqi Joint Operations Command.
No group has claimed responsibility for the attack. Iraqi military bases housing U.S. troops across Iraq and the U.S. embassy in the Green Zone have been frequently targeted by mortar and rocket attacks.
