New Video Released: Iranian Missiles Rain Down on US Base in Iraq

The Pentagon has declassified never-before-seen drone footage showing a barrage of Iranian missiles pounding an American airbase in Iraq last year, launched in response to the US kill strike on Iranian General Qassem Soleimani.

US Central Command released the declassified footage, in which six Qiam 1 missiles are seen raining down on the Ayn al-Asad airbase, which houses US troops in Iraq’s western Anbar Province.

The video shows incoming missiles as they slam into aircraft maintenance hangars and other base facilities, detonating and sending black columns of smoke into the sky.

The footage was captured on January 8, 2020, by an American drone buzzing over the base, some five days after Qassem Soleimani was killed in a US air raid near the Baghdad airport, ordered by then-president Donald Trump.
