Missile targets BDSC
The Diplomatic Support Center of the International Coalition in Baghdad is under attack by a missile and on alert at the Victoria base inside the capital's airport, in conjunction with the downing of two marches at the Ain Al-Assad base.
Al-Mayadeen correspondent in Iraq reported that a missile fell, at dawn today, Sunday, near the diplomatic support center in Baghdad, without causing any material damage or casualties.
A spokesman for the International Coalition, Wayne Marotto, wrote in a tweet on Twitter that "the Baghdad Diplomatic Support Center (BDSC) was attacked by one rocket round", without causing any casualties or damage.
He stressed that the attack is being investigated, adding that any attack on the international coalition "undermines the authority of Iraqi institutions and undermines the sovereignty of Iraq."

Sirens heard inside the Victoria base, which houses US soldiers, near Baghdad International Airport, and explosions were reported to be heard at Ain Al-Assad base in Anbar, which houses US military forces.
The Security Media Cell reported that the air defense system at Ain al-Assad base confronted two drones and managed to shoot them down.
The base was attacked by several missiles a few weeks ago, but no Al-Qaeda members were recorded injured.
