Three U.S. soldiers were killed in Iraq in two separate attacks involving roadside bombs, the military said Monday.
One of the attacks occurred early Monday in western Baghdad, killing two American soldiers, the military said in a statement. No other details were immediately available about the attack, including its exact location or the identity of the victims, according to the AP.
The third U.S. soldier, working with the 42nd Brigade, was killed about 50 miles (80 kilometers) southeast of Baghdad, the military said. No other information was immediately available, including what day the attack occurred.
The deaths raised to 1,917 the number of U.S. service members who have died since the beginning of the Iraq war in March 2003, according to an Associated Press count.
It is assumed that the fighter will be created using new stealth technologies and have a very large interception range - up to 1,500 kilometers
