國防焦點

【4月6日】看軍聞學英語

原文:

 Two rockets struck a training base south of Baghdad where U.S.-led coalition troops are present, Iraq's military said Tuesday, the third such attack in the span of a week.

 The rockets hit the Basmaya base near the Iraqi capital on Monday evening. The projectiles landed in an area that includes agricultural land and a factory.

 A Spanish contingent of the coalition and NATO trainers are also present at the Basmaya site. There was no immediate confirmation of the attack from the coalition and no militant group claimed responsibility for the assault.

 However, Iran-backed Shiite militia groups vowed to exact revenge after U.S. airstrikes last Friday against Kataib Hezbollah weapons facilities.

中譯:

 伊拉克軍方週二表示,巴格達南方的一座訓練基地遭到2枚火箭彈攻擊,以美國為首的聯軍部隊駐紮在該基地,這是1週以來,第3次的火箭彈攻擊。

 這2枚火箭彈於週一晚間,襲擊伊拉克首都附近的巴斯馬亞基地。彈體落在含有農地及工廠的地區。

 聯軍的西班牙分遣隊及北大西洋公約組織的訓練人員,也都駐紮在巴斯馬亞基地。聯軍方面尚未立即證實此次攻擊事件,而且也沒有激進團體聲稱發動本次攻擊。

 不過,上週五美軍空襲「真主黨旅」的武器設施後,伊朗支持的什葉派民兵組織,就誓言要索討報復。
