Iraq, missiles against US base: "There are injured people"

The United States confirmed the news Rockets launched against a US troop base in Iraq. According to initial information, there appear to be injured people, some of whom could be Americans. “At around 6:30 p.m. (Baghdad time) on January 20, several ballistic missiles and missiles were fired by Iran-backed militants in western Iraq, targeting the city al-Assad air base. The base's air defense systems intercepted most of the missiles, while others struck the base,” the general command confirmed.

“The damage is currently being assessed. Several US employees are being examined for head injuries. At least one member of the Iraqi military service was also injured,” says the statement from X. The attacks intensified yesterday and a similar scenario emerged. In fact, according to the Iran-affiliated Iraqi media platform Sabareen News, “it would be the biggest attack measured by the number of rockets since the start of operations by the so-called Islamic Resistance in Iraq, a Tehran-backed alliance of Iraqi Shiite armed groups. The same media platform reported “piles of smoke over al-Asad Ain base” yesterday afternoon. ” and released an accompanying video that actually appears to show the tracks of some rockets in the sky.

However, in these hours the news republished by Tehran about a satellite Launched into orbit, which, according to some Western sources, could be aimed at improving the precision of ballistic missiles. State television reported that it was a launch as part of the US space program Iranian Revolutionary Guards. The United States had previously said that Iranian satellite launches violated a United Nations Security Council resolution. For this reason, they had asked Tehran not to engage in any activities with ballistic missiles capable of carrying nuclear weapons.
