Published by on

Fresh Missile Attack Rocks Base North Of Baghdad Where US Troops Present It's currently being described by regional analysts and reporters as a “huge” and “violent” missile attack on a base where US troops are present in Iraq, though no American casualties have been reported so far.

Conflicting local accounts suggest that multiple Iraqi personnel have been injured. Reuters has the early but limited details as follows: Iraqi camp Taji north of Baghdad was targeted by Katyusha rockets on Tuesday, with no casualties reported, an Iraqi military statement said. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

A Bloomberg source citing Iraq's Sumaria says 5 Katyusha rockets targeted the military base Camp Taji which lies north of Baghdad.  Illustrative file image via AFP.

Given the events of the past months, it's entirely possible that future attacks by remnant ISIS cells in Iraq get blamed on Iran and Iraqi Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) by the US administration.
