Details: US troops in the Middle East were targeted in three attacks in Iraq, but there were no casualties.


The official added that three US soldiers sustained minor injuries and have returned to duty.

An improvised explosive device also detonated in a convoy near the Mosul Dam, with no casualties reported.

A drone was launched at the Ain al-Asad airbase west of Baghdad on Thursday morning but was downed without casualties or damage to infrastructure facilities.


One more drone was also downed near the Al-Harir airbase in Erbil, where US and international forces are stationed.

The US blames the attacks on Iran-backed groups and says Tehran bears full responsibility, a claim Tehran denies, saying the groups involved in the attacks did it following their own will.

Iran-backed militias in Iraq stated that they will continue to consider US military bases as potential targets, as long as the US supports Israel in its war against the Gaza Strip.
