US forces shoot down armed drone over Iraq embassy



US forces shot down an สล็อตโรม่า armed drone above their embassy in Baghdad on Monday (Jul 6) night, Iraqi security officials said, hours after a rocket attack on a base housing US soldiers in the west of the country.


American defence systems fired rockets into the air in Baghdad, according to AFP reporters, with Iraqi security sources saying the salvos took out a drone that was laden with explosives.


Since the start of the year, 47 attacks have targeted US interests in the country, where 2,500 American troops are deployed as part of an international coalition to fight the jihadist Islamic State group.


Six of them involved these kinds of drones, a tactic that poses a headache for the coalition as the aircraft can evade air defences.


In April, a drone packed with explosives hit the coalition's Iraq headquarters in the military part of the airport in Arbil, the Iraqi Kurdish regional capital.


The next month, a drone packed with explosives hit the Ain Al-Asad airbase housing US troops.


On Jun 9, three explosives-laden drones targeted Baghdad airport, where US soldiers are also deployed. One was intercepted by the Iraqi army.


In a sign that the United States is concerned about new drone attacks, it recently offered up to US$3 million for information on attacks targeting its interests in Iraq.
