“Ain al-Assad airbase was a strategic site for The U.S. which was used to support drones,” the source added.
As many as 20 critical points of the base were hit by 15 missiles and a significant number of UAVs and helicopters were destroyed, according to the source.
“Despite the fact that Americans had been on high alert, their air defense was unable to respond.”
“As many as 104 critical U.S.-held points in the region have been targeted, which would be attacked upon the U.S.’s first mistake,” the source added.
The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps targeted the U.S. airbase of Ain al-Assad in Anbar province in western Iraq after launching a wave of attacks in early hours of Wednesday to retaliate the U.S. assassination of IRGC Quds Force commander, Lt. Gen. Qasem Soleimani .
