Two Iranian drones carrying explosives were intercepted and destroyed before reaching their intended target on Tuesday —U.S. Ain al-Asad airbase just west of Baghdad.
“The foiled strike came a day after similar devices with ‘Soleimani’s revenge’ written on their wings were intercepted over Baghdad,” the Daily mail reports.
“It is the second such attempted attack coinciding with the anniversary of the 2020 Trump-ordered US air strike that killed top Iranian general Qassem Soleimani near Baghdad airport.”
