Security officials discovered a rocket launcher with a timer in the countryside of Al-Bakriya, west of the Iraqi capital.
On Wednesday morning, three Katyusha rockets fell around the perimeter of Baghdad International Airport. This was reported by Xinhua with reference to the Iraqi military on May 6.
Security officials later discovered a rocket launcher with a timer in the countryside of Al-Bakriya, west of the capital of Iraq. There is no data on casualties and destruction as a result of the shelling.
So far, no group has claimed responsibility for the attack on the airport.
Today’s missile attack was the first in recent weeks in the metropolitan area of Iraq. In late March, the media reported that two missiles fell near the US Embassy in Baghdad.
And last week, militants of the Islamic State extremist group attacked northern Iraq in the province of Salah al-Din. Then 11 people were killed.
