Drone attack targets U.S. base in Baghdad airport

A couple of drone attacks reportedly struck the U.S. Victory Base on Monday at Baghdad International Airport, according to local media.


Two drones were shot down by the U.S. defense system, according to photo footage released on social media.


The written scripts on the wings of drones roughly translate to “Leader’s revenge” and “Soleimani’s revenge.”


Meanwhile, Iran’s Deputy Vice President for Legal Affairs has said that granting immunity to perpetrators behind the killing of Qasem Soleimani threatens international peace.


He has written a letter to the United Nations General Assembly to seek a resolution on Soleimani’s assassination.


In the letter he has written, ”It is highly proposed that the universally respected General Assembly; while within condemning the state-centric assassination of the foreign state and diplomatic officials, take all possible legal initiatives within its authorities, including the adoption of a resolution to prevent such crimes in the future.”


In other words, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted an expanded emergency use authorization (EUA) for the Pfizer and BioNTech’s Covid-19 vaccine’s booster dose to adolescents aged 12 years and above.

The booster shot is of the same 30µg dosage as the approved primary vaccine regimen dose.


Earlier, the FDA granted EUA to the booster shot for use in people aged 16 years and above; who have completed the initial dosing regimen.

In addition, the booster can be used in eligible adults aged 18 years and above; who received primary vaccine series with a separate authorised Covid-19 shot.


Meanwhile, the FDA has also amended the current EUA for lowering the booster inoculation time to a minimum of five months from at least six months; after receiving primary doses for 12 years and older individuals.
