Baghdad airport hit by two Katyusha rockets
According to local media, there are no victims
Baghdad international airport was hit and damaged by two rockets which fortunately did not cause any casualties. As reported by the Iraqi media, the airport has been the target of an attack that has no claim yet, although there is a tendency to believe that the responsibilities are all of the popular mobilization forces. The airport is one of many objectives that have to do with the United States, given that American troops are located in this area of the country.
It is the umpteenth episode of this type since last October, to be precise the 39th. According to what was reconstructed by local journalists, the stopover was reached by Katyusha rockets (the classic missiles of the BM-13 system, called RS-132), coming from two different positions. Washington had secured the use of the Patriot Missile Defense System in the "green zone" of Baghdad (the so-called "international zone"), but the use took place only once in an entire month.
