Rockets Hit Base Housing US Troops for Second Time in Iraq

The news comes just few days after two US Troops and a British serviceman were killed by an attack on the Camp Taji base that resulted in massive strikes against the local Shia militia by the US-led coalition.

Several rockets hit coalition troops north of Baghdad, Iraqi security officials stated on Saturday, in a second attack against the Camp Taji this week. At the moment, there is no official information about damage or victims caused by the assault.

According to a statement, a few rockets hit the coalition quarters while several others fell on a runway used by Iraqi forces.

Wednesday’s rocket attack that killed three coalition soldiers came after Washington announced it would be moving air and missile defence systems into Iraq to defend against ballistic missile and drone threats.
