Iran proxy Kata’ib Hezbollah claims drone attack on US base in Iraq

Kata’ib Hezbollah, an Iranian proxy group operating in Iraq and Syria, claims to have attacked the US-operated Ain al-Assad military base in western Iraq.

The group says it sent two drones “which scored direct hits on their targets.”

On Monday, security sources told Reuters that four Katyusha rockets had been fired at the base.

As of Monday, American and allied forces in Iraq and Syria had been attacked with drones and rockets 23 times this month, according to a senior US defense official.

“From October 17 to October 30, US and coalition forces have been attacked at least 14 separate times in Iraq and nine separate times in Syria,” the official said Monday. “Most failed to reach their targets thanks to our robust defenses.”
