Unidentified drone bombs pro-Iranian Iraqi militia HQ

An unidentified drone on Friday struck a camp of the 52th Brigade of the pro-Iranian Hash Shaabi militia in Iraq’s central province of Salahudin. A local security source said at least three Iraqis and two Iranians were wounded. DEBKAfile reports that the 52nd Brigade is an element of the Shiite Badr Brigades, headed by the Shiite leader Hadi al-Ameri and founded by Tehran in the 1980s. Sources in Saudi Arabia say the drone struck the venue of an important meeting of Iranian and Hizballah leaders and left a number of dead or wounded. This is not confirmed by any other source.
