इराक़ : अमेरिकी मिलेट्री के ठिकाने पर बरसे रॉकेट : वीडियो

 

इराक की राजधानी बगदाद के उत्तर में स्थित एक इराकी हवाईअड्डे पर रविवार को रॉकेट गिरे जिनकी चपेट में आने से दो इराकी सुरक्षाकर्मी घायल हो गए।

इराकी सेना के कमांडर मेजर जनरल दिया मोहसेन ने इराक की आधिकारिक संवाद एजेंसी को बताया कि बलाद हवाई ठिकाने के भीतर कम से कम 5 रॉकेट धमाके हुए। यह ठिकाना अमेरिकी प्रशिक्षकों का आवास है।

इस हमले से कुछ दिन पहले विस्फोटक लदे ड्रोन ने उत्तरी इराक के एक हवाईअड्डे के नजदीक अमेरिका नीत बलों को निशाना बनाया था जिससे इमारत में आग लग गई थी।

मोहसेन ने बताया कि हमले में 5 सुरक्षाकर्मी घायल हुए हैं जिनमें से एक की हालत गंभीर है। उन्होंने कहा, हालांकि, ठिकाने के भीतर किसी अधिस्थापना को नुकसान नहीं हुआ है।

Rockets target US military base in Iraq

US blames Iran-linked factions for attacks on its troops and diplomats in Iraq

Five rockets targeted Sunday an Iraqi airbase hosting US soldiers and at least two projectiles hit the facilities of an American firm that provides maintenance to planes, a security source said.

The rockets targeted Balad airbase north of Balad, and two crashed into a dormitory and a canteen of US company Sallyport, the source told the AFP news agency.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but the United States usually blames Iran-linked Iraqi factions for such attacks on its troops and diplomats.

It was not immediately clear if there were any casualties.

F-16 aircraft are stationed at the Balad airbase north of Baghdad, and several maintenance companies are present there, employing Iraqi and foreign staff.

There have been around 20 bomb or rocket attacks against American interests, including bases hosting US soldiers, since US President Joe Biden took office in January.
