On June 11, Iraqi security forces thwarted a rocket attack on Balad Air Base, where US troops are known to be deployed.


In a statement, the Security Media Cell said that the Interior Ministry’s Intelligence and Federal Investigations Agency had uncovered four Katyusha [107 mm] rockets along with their launchers in the area of al-Zanbur in the northern Iraqi province of Diyala.



“The rockets were prepared to target Balad Air Base,” the statement reads. “They have been dismantled by explosives specialist.”



Two days ago, five rockets were fired at the air base. At around the same time, a booby-trapped drone targeted a US military installation in Baghdad International Airport.

Washington claims that pro-Iranian groups were behind recent attacks on its troops and diplomats in Iraq. This was confirmed in many cases.


Desperate to stop these attacks, the US Department of State’s Rewards for Justice Program offered a reward of up to $3 million for information about past or upcoming attacks on US diplomatic facilities in Iraq.


Attacks on US troops and diplomats in Iraq are getting more sophisticated and more frequent. Washington can not operate with much freedom in Iraq like before.
