On Monday, an Iraqi security official stated that Iraqi security forces have thwarted two drone attacks on Baghdad International Airport.
Air defense systems intercepted two explosive-laden drones targeting the diplomatic area at the airport, the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, expressed.
No injuries or damage were reported, while comments by Iraqi authorities have yet to be shared.
The intercepted attack comes two years after the assassination of top Iranian general Qassem Soleimani in a US drone attack near Baghdad airport on January 3, 2020.
Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis, the deputy leader of the Hashd al-Shaabi militia, also known as the Popular Mobilization Forces, was also killed in the attack.
US interests in Iraq, especially military bases, have been targeted by missile and drone attacks since Soleimani’s killing, which Washington blames on Iraqi Shia militias close to Iran.
