Iraqi air base with US soldiers under fire

In Iraq, missiles have been fired at an air base used by US soldiers. A representative of the security forces told the AFP news agency on Monday that two rockets had hit the premises of the Balad base north of Baghdad. Five more rockets hit a nearby village. However, there were neither injuries nor damage. The rockets were launched from a village in the neighboring province of Diyala.

Earlier this month, a civilian military worker was killed in a missile attack on a US military base in western Iraq. Dozens of rocket and bombing attacks have been carried out on embassies, troops and facilities of Western countries in Iraq since autumn 2019. The US has repeatedly blamed pro-Iranian militias such as the Shiite Hezbollah brigades for the attacks.
