A US anti-missile and anti-aircraft system was deployed to protect Ain al-Asad air base in Anbar.
According to a statement by a source, American forces have begun deploying a missile defense system at the Ain Al-Asad air base in the Al-Baghdadi district of Hit, western Anbar. The deployment comes after the current defense system proved ineffective in intercepting drones and missiles launched by the Islamic Resistance, resulting in casualties and material losses for the American forces.
According to sources, a new missile system has been deployed as a replacement for the current system, which has failed. The name of the new system is unknown, but it is believed to be an advanced defense system designed to target any foreign object flying over the Ain al-Asad air base. An anti-missile and anti-aircraft system has been deployed as a precautionary measure.
The Ain al-Asad base, located in the west of Anbar, was attacked by drones and missiles from the Islamic Resistance Axis. The American forces stationed there were targeted to show support for the Palestinian resistance and to protest against the presence of American combat forces in Iraq. This attack highlights the ongoing tension between the two sides.
