Camp Libeccio

Camp Libeccio is the coalition and Iraqi police liaison building in the center of town

A suicide car bomber broke through a security perimeter and detonated an explosion in front of the Italian paramilitary police headquaters in Nasiriyah on 12 November, 2003, killing at least 26 and injuring over 60 people.

In the southeastern zone of operations, enemy forces continued to engage coalition forces in Nasiriyah. On 17 May 2004, the CPA building was attacked on three separate occasions. Camp Libeccio was attacked on four occasions and these attacks led to a withdrawal from the building to a more protected site.
