Armed drone shot down over Iraq’s Erbil airport where US forces are stationed

An armed drone is shot down over Erbil airport in northern Iraq, where US and other international forces are stationed, two security sources say.

It is not clear if the foiled attack caused any damage or casualties, the sources add.

The attempted attack is the third one to be thwarted in the last two days. On Monday, defense systems shot down an armed drone over the Ain al-Assad airbase in western Iraq, which hosts international forces, including the US. Several hours earlier, a drone was shot down over Erbil airport.
