DOD: AC-130 Strikes Iranian-Backed Militants Following Missile Attack, CENTCOM Strikes Two Facilities In Iraq
Singh said the AC-130 gunship was able to mount a response so quickly because it was already in the air at the time of the missile attack.
Department of Defense: A U.S. military AC-130J Ghostrider attacked an Iran-backed militant group after the group used a ballistic missile to attack U.S. and coalition forces on Al-Asad Airbase, Iraq, the deputy Pentagon press secretary said today. CENTCOM also reported striking two facilities in Iraq using close-range ballistic missiles.
The ballistic missile attack resulted in non-serious injuries to U.S. and coalition forces, as well as minor damage to infrastructure on the installation, said Sabrina Singh during a briefing at the Pentagon.
