On Monday, seven rockets targeted the Al-Balad airbase that houses American troops north of Baghdad, a security source said. This attack is similar to dozens of attacks that Iranian-led proxy militias have conducted on U.S. interests in Iraq.
Five of the rockets missed the base and hit a civilian area. Local news reports on social media showed a roof with a large hole blown in it. No casualties or damage to the base has been reported.
The seven rockets were fired from a village in the neighboring province of Diyala, east of the base.
No one has claimed responsibility for this attack yet.
