CandyKisses:  US soldier casualties rise to 46 following factional attacks in Iraq and Syria

Baghdad Today – Follow-up

Despite the Pentagon’s warnings of escalating attacks on US forces stationed in the Middle East and the deployment of naval assets in the region to bolster a response, attacks on its forces have risen sharply over the past period, with these bases subjected to six attacks in 24 hours, and more than 50 attacks in the past month, according to the American network “Newsmax”.

The Pentagon said the number of its troops wounded over the past month as a result of non-rocket attacks by armed factions on US bases in Iraq and Syria has now risen to at least 46, with two soldiers flown to Germany’s Landstuhl Regional Medical Center for head observation following one of the attacks.

The Counter-Terrorism Service in Iraqi Kurdistan announced on Tuesday (November 7, 2023), in a statement, that three armed drones were shot down, in two separate attacks over Erbil airport in northern Iraq, where US and other international forces are stationed.

The attacks are the latest in a series of attacks on US forces in Iraq and Syria as tensions in the Middle East rise over the war between Israel and Hamas.

The Islamic Resistance in Iraq said it had targeted the Harir military base, about 70 km northeast of Erbil airport.

The statement said the defense system at a military base near the airport successfully defended against drones. A US defense official said there were no injuries or damage to infrastructure.

The US official added that since October 17, “most of these attacks have failed to reach their targets, thanks to our strong defenses.”

Iraqi Prime Minister Mohammed Shia al-Sudani vowed to pursue those responsible for recent attacks on three military bases in Iraq hosting international coalition advisors, including Ain al-Assad base in western Iraq, a military base near Baghdad International Airport and a Harir base in Erbil. .
