According to the initial announcement from the internal security service of the autonomous Kurdish region in Iraq, three rockets fell near the Erbil airport in their region, located in northern Iraq.

In a later statement, the Kurdish counter-terrorism force said the attack was carried out by drones carrying explosives.

Reuters news agency said there were no reports of damage or casualties. Witnesses said they heard at least six explosions in the area.

Erbil Airport, located in the capital of the autonomous Kurdish region, has been attacked several times over the past year, including drone attacks.

American officials accused Shi’ite Muslim fighters of being behind these attacks.

US forces are leading an international military coalition tasked with helping Iraqi forces fight the remnants of the Islamic State group.

The union did not immediately comment on the recent incident.
