Airbase in Iraq Housing US Troops Suffers Rocket Attack

What Happened:

  • On Wednesday, an airbase in Iraq housing US and coalition forces was targeted by at least 10 rockets.

  • There are reports of no casualties and minimal damage at the Ain al-Asad airbase thus far and no group has claimed responsibility for the attack. The rockets struck the airbase in the early morning.

  • The attack comes less than a week after the US carried out an airstrike in Syria targeting an Iran-backed militia, leading many to believe that this is retaliation. Iran targeted the same base just over a year ago.

  • One of the objectives of last week's airstrike in Syria was to deter future attacks on US troops.
