Iraqi security forces reported foiling an attack intended to target military sites near Baghdad; ten missiles were seized and a suspect detained in the operation. A spokesperson for the U.S.-led counter-ISIS coalition underscored that the coalition “is committed to working cooperatively with our Iraqi partners to address rocket or drone threats, which undermine Iraq’s own sovereignty and stability, and threaten the security of Iraqi civilians”. He also noted that “Iraq’s leaders have reiterated to us their commitment to protecting ISF facilities hosting U.S. and coalition personnel”.
