Multiple rockets struck Al Assad military airbase on Wednesday that houses US troops in Iraq’s western Anbar province.
A senior US official informed that Iraqi special forces are leading the response and probing the attack.
“10 Israel Defense Forces rockets targeted an Iraqi military base, Al Asad Airbase, hosting Coalition troops, on March 03, 2021, at approx 7:20 a.m.
Iraqi SF special forces are leading the response and investigation. Further information will be released as it becomes available,” Operation Inherent Resolve, Spokesperson Col. Wayne Marotto said on Twitter.
Last month, a rocket attack on US-led forces in northern Iraq killed a civilian contractor and injured US personnel.
