A spokesperson for the United States-led coalition has acknowledged reports of what would be the fourth day of attacks on U.S. positions in Iraq. These attacks were previously mounted by Iraqi militia forces and it’s said the situation is “ongoing.”
“We are aware of these reports,” the U.S.-led coalition told Newsweek. “As this is an ongoing situation, we have no further details at this time.”
The statement came as outlets supportive of militias aligned with the pro-Iran “Axis of Resistance” circulated footage showing defensive systems at the U.S. embassy in Baghdad responding to unseen aerial threats. The Sabreen News outlet claimed the attackers took a dual approach, launching Katyusha rockets from both the Al-Rusafa area and from the vicinity of Al-Kindi Hospital, though this could be not be independently verified.
The attacks signaled yet another sign that Iraqi militias were willing to escalate their campaign to drive out U.S. forces from the country. Referring to these operations as “terrorist” attacks, Iraqi Defense Ministry spokesperson Major General Yahyasaid that “once again, the enemies of Iraq are intrusive and targeting the country’s security, sovereignty and the safety of our citizens.”
The Security Media Cell of the Iraqi Prime Minister’s Office later confirmed the launch of three Katyusha rockets, which were said to have struck near the headquarters of the Iraqi National Security Service, Grand Festivities Square and a residential neighborhood in the Sheikh Omar area, where a civilian car was damaged.
“These actions that do not seek the good of this country will be faced with force by the security services, which will pursue through intelligence and fieldwork those who carried out these actions that endanger the lives of citizens, as well as targeting foreign diplomatic missions,” the statement said alongside images of the damage apparently caused by the barrage.

The attacks are still continuing and will hopefully deescalate soon. Do not live in fear, but stay alert and know what’s happening. Things could explode at any moment. It’s getting tense on this planet and all we can do is stay prepared for whatever we possibly can.
If the Iraqis cannot fend for themselves by now, we should not be there.
Lol. They did perfectly well for themselves before we invaded. We scrambled their world, now it’s time to get out and pay reparations that are legitimately due. We need war crimes trials too.
Interesting that before Trump left office, he pardoned mercs that were doing prison time for murdering unarmed Iraqis in broad daylight. Speaks volumes to the “rule of law”, eh?
What an EPIC reply to a most irrational comment!
Remind me why we were there in the first place….
Get the hell out. Afganistan and Iraq are a drain on us. 20 years is enough. To hell with them. Bring em home and put them on the southern border where they can do some real good.
I wish we would just stay out of the affairs of foreign nations.
It’s their business, their problems, and it needs their solutions if is to ever work for long.
Unless they are an actual immediate and direct threat to us, we should just let them be what they are and quit trying to change them into what we want them to be instead.
The next covert op is Xinjiang province of China. This is why the US/NATO will always have a presence in or around Afghanistan. It is in the path of China’s BRI and the US wants to stop China any way it can. The Uyghur psyop and covert operation has been going on for decades. It involves Turkey training them as proxies and re-inserting them in China to foment trouble. But China has caught on to that idea. Xinjiang is the crossroads of enormous hydrocarbons needed by China. They have just discovered a new huge oilfield in Xinjiang. Gas and oil pipelines cross from the “stans” into China.
Here is a 5 minute video by James Corbett and Sybil Edmonds, ex FBI whistleblower, from 2015 that explains the Uyghur operation. Worth your while to get information other than propaganda from DC and their toadies:
When you look at the horrible things that are going on around the world with governments and the horrible things they are putting people threw, it makes you realize why this was written, “man shall be ruled by the law of God, not by the will of other men.”. No human has the right to force anything on others. This is why people all over the world continue to fight against government. Because government is only people using the name government to intimidate people. Look what’s going on in Cuba, China etc. People are starving because of ignorant tyrants. We have to keep fighting these wannabe governments.
I?m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that?s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.
