Preliminary reports have indicated that a drone attack has struck a military facility near Baghdad International Airport in Iraq that houses US service members, it was revealed Monday.
It's presently unclear if the incident has caused any injuries, fatalities, or structural damages. Iraqi officials have not yet confirmed initial reports.
Citing al-Sharq TV, Egyptian outlet el Balad reported that the drones targeting the military camp had been "booby trapped."
The latest incident comes several days after an unidentified drone dropped multiple explosive projectiles toward the same facility. At the time, Press TV cited a security source who informed Shafaq News that the drone targeted a wall at the base.
Drone strikes in the region are not uncommon by any measure. Two drone strikes were previously downed by air defense systems at Iraq's Ain al-Asad Air Base in early June, with another drone attack being carried out against a US State Department facility near the Baghdad airport just days later.
