Two Armed Drones Target Baghdad Airport Near US Advisors, Iranian Threats Against Israel

The Anniversary of Soleimani's death

An attack on the base housing US advisors near Baghdad airport by two armed drones was repulsed by C-RAM missile defense systems. Coalition officials reported that the attack coincided with the death of QUDS Commander Soleimani on January 2, 2020 near the airport. There were no deaths or injuries. There were some interesting side notes as Iran also left a direct threat against Israel when they hacked an Israeli news site.

The official with the U.S.-led international coalition fighting the Islamic State group in Iraq told The Associated Press that the C-RAM defense system at the Baghdad Diplomatic Support Center engaged two fixed wing so-called “suicide drones.” The C-RAM system protects American installations in Iraq.

“This was a dangerous attack on a civilian airport,” the coalition official said.

The Iraqi security official who confirmed the incident said the drones were headed toward a U.S. base at Baghdad airport housing U.S. advisors.

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, although one of the wings of the drones had the words “Soleimani’s revenge” painted on it, while another had words reading, “revenge operations for our leaders,” according to the officials. Both spoke on condition of anonymity in line with regulations.

Also at the same time, the website of the Jerusalem Post was hacked by what they called “pro-iranian” hackers. The message of the hackers was that Iran could target the site of Israel’s Nuclear power plant near Dimona in the Negev Desert.

“We are close to you where you do not think about it.”

The Jerusalem Post acknowledged the hacking and the direct threat against Israel, saying that they were working on it. Previously on Twitter, Iran posted that they can easily use ballistic missiles to target their enemies, Israel in particular. According to General McKenzie, their ability to use ballistic missiles is an even greater threat than their nuclear plans in the short term.

The two armed drones are only one part of the problem with Iran in the Middle East. Fortunately the C-RAM defense systems are working properly and no one was injured. Iranian backed militias target both US forces and Israeli sites on a regular basis.
