2 rockets target Baghdad airport base housing US-led coalition troops
Two rockets targeted an airbase at Iraq's Baghdad airport housing US-led coalition troops on Sunday.
French news agency citing a security source said that one of the projectiles was intercepted by the C-RAM counter rocket, artillery and mortar system deployed to protect US troops in Iraq. No one yet has claimed responsibility for the attack and also no casualties have been reported, said the army, according to The US Posts.
Last week, three rockets crashed into the sector of the Baghdad airport base occupied by Iraqi troops, wounding one soldier. Almost 30 rocket or bomb attacks have targeted American interests in Iraq -- including troops, the embassy or Iraqi supply convoys to foreign forces -- since President Joe Biden took office in January, reported The US Posts.
