Two Katyusha rockets fell in Iraq’s Taji base that hosts US-led coalition troops, the state news agency said on Saturday, citing a military statement. No injuries have been reported. Jason Brodsky, policy director at United Against Nuclear Iran, said: “Another rocket attack today on Camp Taji in #Iraq just days before its prime minister is scheduled to visit the White House on August 20.”
It comes after the US embassy in Baghdad was targetted by three rockets in Iraq’s capital earlier this month.
The attacks took place near to the border of Kuwait and just north of the capital.
The missile strikes did not cause any casualties but there was damage to equipment.
