Iraq: Explosions rock military base south of Baghdad

BREAKING: Blasts caused by the explosion of an ammunition depot of the Federal Police rocked the al-Saqr military base south of Baghdad.

The Iraqi army said that the explosions occurred due to the high air temperature and poor storage conditions.

Earlier reports indicated that at least three rockets fired by Iran-backed terrorists hit the base.

On Friday, the Iran-backed Asbat al-Thaireen terror group fired four Katyusha rockets toward the Basmaya military base southeast of Baghdad, which houses US coalition, Spanish and NATO forces.


Military bases hosting US troops in Iraq have been attacked by ballistic missiles from Iran and mortar shells launched almost daily by local Iran-backed terrorists, before and after the elimination of arch-terrorist Qassem Soleimani.
