2 airbases housing US-led coalition forces attacked in Iraq

Two airbases housing the US-led coalition forces in Iraq's Kurdistan region and western Iraq were attacked by drones on Friday.

A statement by Kurdistan's regional Counter-Terrorism Service said a booby-trapped drone hit the Harir Airbase outside the city of Erbil at 10:25 a.m. local time (0725 GMT) on Friday, Xinhua reported.

There have been no reports of casualties as the coalition forces already withdrew from the airbase on Oct. 20.

Iraq Islamic Resistance announced in an online statement that its fighters launched a drone attack on the Harir Airbase. It said the drone hit its targets without providing further details.

In another online statement, this group said its fighters had launched two booby-trapped drones toward the Ayn al-Asad Airbase near the town of al-Baghdadi, some 190 km northwest of the capital Baghdad.

In reaction to US support for the Israeli regime in the Gaza war, the Iraqi Resistance groups have repeatedly targeted the positions of American forces in recent days.

After the martyrdom of Resistance commanders who led the anti-terrorism fight in Iraq and Syria, the Iraqi parliament approved a piece of legislation to call for the withdrawal of American troops from the country, a demand that the US troops have yet to meet.
