Five Attacks In Less Than 72 Hours: Injuries Reported After 14 Rockets Hit US Base In Iraq

The pace of attacks on Americans in Iraq is picking up after Biden's airstrikes along the Iraq-Syria border late last month were meant precisely as deterrence and as a response to prior drone attacks. Clearly it didn't work, but only served as but the next escalation portending more to come. 

At least 14 rockets hit Ain Assad base Wednesday in the second such attack on the installation in as many days. US, Iraq, and other Western allied forces operation from the large base in western Anbar province. It's unclear whether the two injured are Americans or partner forces (the coalition spokesman initially assessed three injured before revising down to two).

This week alone has now seen multiple brazen assaults on based hosting US troops, including a prior Monday rocket attack on Ain Assad, followed with a Tuesday attack on a US base in Erbil, and now on Wednesday the latest included a large volley of rockets. There was also the intercept of an inbound armed drone over the US embassy in Baghdad on Tuesday.

Mideast regional correspondent Joyce Karam writes that this latest makes five attacks on American forces in Iraq and Syria in less than 72 hours. They include:

  • Mon, July 5: Ain Al Assad, Iraq

  • Tue, July 6: Union III, Iraq

  • Tue, July 6: Erbil Airport, Iraq

  • Wed, July 7: Ain Al Assad, Iraq 

  • Wed, July 7: Deir Zour, Syria

The Syria incident, meanwhile, is recapped in Reuters as follows: "In Syria, the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces said no damage was done by the drone attack on the Al Omar oil field in eastern Syria, an area bordering Iraq where U.S. forces came under rocket fire but escaped injury on June 28."

Though the perpetrators of these latest attacks are as yet unknown, the incidents are being widely viewed as part of broader revenge attacks for the aforementioned June 27 series of US airstrikes on Iran-backed militia groups along the Iraq-Syria border, which killed and wounded multiple fighters as well as reports of civilians.

  1. Of course they’re emboldened by our sorry-ass retreat and surrender to the Taliban in Afghanistan. Just like Vietnam, declare victory and go home. We should have hunted down every Taliban and eliminated them right from the beginning. Too late now, they’ll have control if Kabul and the government in 3 months or less.
