BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:40 P.M.) – A security source in the Al-Anbar Governorate revealed on Saturday that the American forces have taken unprecedented measures against the backdrop of a plot to target the Ain al-Assad Base.

The source said to Iraq’s Al-Sumaria News, “The American forces took unprecedented precautionary measures at the Al-Assad Base in the Al-Baghdadi District and Heet District after a new attack on the K-1 base in the Kirkuk Governorate.”

The source, who preferred not to be identified, added that “planes flew over the base” following last night’s attack.

The Iraqi army announced, yesterday, Friday, that several missiles were fired at the Iraqi K-1 military base near the city of Kirkuk.

Security sources said that the base, located 15 km northwest of Kirkuk, includes American military forces, along with Iraqi troops from the Federal Police and the anti-terrorist agency.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
