Militants Launch a Number of Rockets

Oct 2, 2020

On 30 September 2020, unidentified militants launched an undetermined number of rockets at Erbil International Airport (ORER/EBL). Reports indicate the attack targeted the eastern section of the facility, where U.S. military personnel are based, but the rockets landed outside the airport grounds. There were no reports of casualties as a result of the attack, nor were there any reports of disruptions at the airport. U.S. military personnel at the facility were ordered to take cover as a precaution. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, but video footage posted by Iranian-linked militant groups suggests they may be responsible.
