Iraq Confirms Three Drones Attacked Baghdad Airport on Wednesday

ERBIL — Iraq’s Security Media Cell has confirmed that the Wednesday’s attack on Baghdad International Airport was carried out by three explosive-laden drones.

The Security Media Cell also revealed in a statement that one drone was shot down over Camp Victoria at the airport, where the US forces are stationed.

The attack came hours after multiple rockets targeted Balad Air Base in north of Baghdad.

Following repeated attacks, reports said the US had withdrawn its contractors from Balad Air Base in the recent months.
