Iraq: Balad Base Comes under Rocket Attack
Iraq’s Balad air base housing the US forces came under a rocket attack on Saturday evening, with no possible casualties or injuries immediately reported.
A security source said in a statement that at least three 107mm rockets were fired in the direction of the military base located in Salahaddin province, Iraqi media reports said.
No further details are currently available on the incident, for which no groups have yet claimed responsibility or have been blamed.
US-led Coalition forces regularly suffer from similar attacks in Iraq, with Washington often blaming them on the pro-Iran militia groups operating in the country.
