Seven Rockets Hit Airbase Housing US Troops In Iraq

ICBPS- Seven rockets on Monday targeted an Iraqi airbase housing U.S. troops north of Baghdad.
The latest in series of attacks on Al-Balad did not cause any casualties or damage inside the base, the security official said.
The other five rockets crashed into a nearby village, according to the official.
Washington has blamed on Tehran-backed militias in the region.
Previously, an American sub-contractor was killed in a similar attack against another airbase, Ain Al-Assad, in Iraq’s western desert.
Rocket attacks have repeatedly targeted the U.S. presence in Baghdad, including the U.S. Embassy, as well as convoys ferrying materials for the U.S.-led coalition. The frequency of attacks diminished late last year ahead of U.S. President Joe Biden’s inauguration, though now Iran is pressing America to return to Tehran’s 2015 nuclear deal.
