We were all sitting on pins and needles, hoping a terror attack would not mark the anniversary of 9/11.
Late in the day, Iran did its best, but it failed.
Reports broke late Saturday that Iranian drones trying to attack an Iraqi airport were shot down and destroyed.
Two bomb-laden drones were reportedly about to unleash an attack at the Erbil airport when the United States intervened.
The counter-rocket artillery and mortar system (C-RAM) engaged the two drones and destroyed them…
.@CJTFOIR can confirm at approx. 2343hrs Sept.11 @Coalition forces at Erbil AB were attacked by 2 UAS. Force protection counter measures were used to defeat the drones. 1 UAS impacted inside perimeter; 1 UAS impacted outside perimeter. There are no injuries or property damage.

No injuries or damage were reported as a result of the attack.
Operation Inherent Resolve spokesman Col. Wayne Marotto stated, “Each attack against the GoI, KRI and the Coalition undermines the authority of Iraqi institutions, the rule of law and Iraqi National sovereignty.
“These attacks endanger the lives of civilians and the partner forces from the ISF, Peshmerga and Coalition.”
This is the first attack after roughly two months of quiet, with the last attack having occurred on July 8 in the Green Zone of Baghdad.
