In the rocket attack that was conducted against Camp Liberty last night, in addition to enhanced 107mm rockets, a different sort of missile was used, which is at least ten times more destructive than 107mm rockets. These rockets are especially crafted for this type of attack, and their destructive power is so intense that it has completely destroyed three-meter-tall TWalls. The pictures are enclosed.

Therefore, the destruction and fires caused by last night’s attack were much more intensive than those of the previous attacks, in which Liberty was targeted with 107mm rockets. In order to increase the inflicted casualties, the rockets were filled with lead.

The transport of these rockets in a totally-military zone adjacent to the Baghdad International Airport, which is completely controlled and protected, cannot succeed without the full cooperation of the different security organs of the Iraqi Prime Minister’s office.

More than 50 were wounded in rocket attack on Camp Liberty. Several are in critical conditions.
