the third drone reached the residence

In Baghdad, sappers try to defuse a shell on the roof of the prime minister’s residence. He fell there during the assassination attempt on the head of government.

Two drones were shot down, the third was a mined aircraft I got to the residence, but explosion the prime minister did not hurt. This is the report of the Ministry of Internal Affairs on the terrorist attack in the Green Zone of Baghdad, where foreign embassies and government agencies are located. In the list of victims – 10 guards… The damage is minor. Immediately after the assassination attempt, the head of government called on the population to calm down.

“My residence was dastardly attacked, but thank God I am in good health. The security services and military forces protecting you are working for the stability of Iraq. We again call for a calm and constructive dialogue for the benefit of Iraq and its future,” Mustafa said Al-Kazimi, Prime Minister of Iraq.

The UN, USA, UK, Iraq, France and several other states condemned the attack and offered to help in the investigation. The reaction also came from Tehran. They said that Western think tanks, which have long been supported by terrorists, are behind the attack.

“The assassination attempt on the Iraqi prime minister is a new incitement to insurgency that can be linked to foreign think tanks. They have brought nothing but insecurity, discord and instability to the oppressed Iraqi people by creating and supporting terrorist groups and occupying this country for many years.” said Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council of Iran Ali Shamkhani.

Attempts using new technologies have occurred more than once over the past few years. In August 2018, several drones with explosives tried to attack President Maduro and other government officials. All drones were shot down by police snipers. Seven national security personnel were injured. And immediately after the explosions, bodyguards protected the head of state with ballistic shields.

“Drones have become such a universal tool that in certain hands can be used for a specific purpose. Terrorists have drones thanks to their sponsors. Here are the terrorists who used drones in Syria, their sponsors were the notorious technologically advanced states that are members of NATO” We found familiar components of downed non-pilots, “says Alexei Leonkov, a military expert and editor of the Arsenal of the Fatherland magazine.

Much more advanced technology was used to assassinate Iranian nuclear physicist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh. New York Times reporters, citing intelligence sources, said that Israeli intelligence Mossad had used a robotic machine gun to kill the scientist. According to journalists, the operator of the car carried out video surveillance using cameras, the images from which were transmitted to him via satellite. Moreover, a pickup truck with a robotic complex was mined so that after the scientist was shot, the evidence could be destroyed.

“Terrorist attacks of the 21st century will most likely be associated with such devices. There are also countermeasures against them, which make it impossible for such devices to eliminate them on the way to the target, so that they could not commit their atrocity,” says Alexei Leonkov.

As for the current Iraqi assassination attempt, political analysts believe that the terrorist attack will only strengthen the authority of the new head of government and help him discredit the paramilitary groups in the country. It is curious that just a week ago the prime minister almost fell victim to a terrorist attack. When the Iraqi intelligence headquarters, which the official visited, was fired upon by rockets.
