A military base hosting US-led coalition forces inside Erbil International Airport in Iraq’s semi-autonomous Kurdistan Region came under attack by explosive-laden drones, Iraqi media reported.

Citing security sources, Iraqi media said the military base inside Erbil airport was “subjected to an attack by explosive-laden drones” late on Tuesday, with reports falling short of providing details on the number of possible casualties or the extent of damage.

The entire passengers were evacuated from the planes at Erbil International Airport, as reports indicated, and the lights were switched off in addition to closing the airspace over the airport.

Iraqi media and news agencies also quoted the Kurdistan Counter-Terrorism Service as saying that the attack on the military base was carried out by “two booby-trapped drones.”

The attack on the US base in Erbil airport reportedly caused a huge fire that the firefighting teams were struggling to put out, but it did not leave any casualties or material damage.

Sirens were also heard blaring from the US Consulate in Erbil after the airport had been targeted.
