Explosions at Iraq’s Erbil airport hosting US-led coalition amid suspected drone attack

Local media reported, citing Kurdistan Region Directorate General of Counter Terrorism (CTD), that “explosive-laden drones” targeted the air hub, which is hosting US forces that are part of the multinational coalition against Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS,ISIL) in Iraq.

Lawk Ghafuri, head of Kurdistan’s foreign media relations, confirmed the airport was attacked “with a drone,” dismissing reports of casualties or damage as false. 

Ghafuri also reported that the explosion was “away from Erbil International Airport’s terminals and territories.”
