Two drones intercepted, shot down over Iraqi air base – military


BAGHDAD (Reuters) – Iraqi military said on Sunday that air defenses at Iraq’s Ain al-Asad air base that hosts u.s. Forces, intercept and shot down two drones.

The military said in a statement the drones were intercepted and shot down at a round 12:30 a.m. local time.

On May 8, an attack by an unmanned aerial surveillance system targeted Iraq’s Ain al-Asad air base, but it caused no injuries.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for Sunday’s attack.
