US Military Base in Iraqi Kurdistan Hit By Drone

A US military base in Iraqi Kurdistan, in northern Iraq, has been the target of a drone strike. The attack, which took place yesterday morning, left no casualties or damage, the International Coalition Against Extremism in Iraq said today.

The drone struck a coalition base in Kurdistan, but fortunately there were no casualties in the attack, a spokesman for the US-led coalition, Colonel Wayne Marotto, told French media.

According to local Kurdish media, the attack took place at al-Hariri base, 70km northeast of Ebril, the capital of the Kurdistan Autonomous Region.

Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kazimi will hold talks with US President Joe Biden in Washington on Monday on a further US military presence in his country.

The United States still has about 2,500 troops in Iraq, out of a total of 3,500 international coalition troops.

Powerful pro-Iranian factions, which have been accused of dozens of attacks on US interests in Iraq in recent months, are demanding their ouster.

The United States returned to Iraq in 2014 to lead an international coalition formed to help Iraqi forces dismantle the Islamic State extremist organization, which was officially defeated in 2017.

Islamic State members are still present in the mountains and desert areas and manage to carry out attacks through their cells by so-called “sleepers”.

US troops still in Iraq have a mission to train and advise the Iraqi military and its counterterrorism forces.
