Iraq’s air defences shoot down drone at Baghdad airport

Iraq’s air defences shot down a drone that attempted to approach an airbase within Baghdad International Airport at dawn on Tuesday, the military said.

The drone was monitored and downed near the Martyr Mohammad Alaa Air Base, a site located within the sprawling airport complex, the Iraqi military said in a statement.

It said the drone had not obtained an official permit to fly within the area and no damage or casualties were reported. Images posted on social media by the military showed a shattered unmanned aircraft, with parts of a propeller and engine visible.
