Four rockets exploded Sunday night time close to a base housing US troops near Iraq’s capital, a safety official stated, shortly after Washington carried out lethal airstrikes towards a pro-Iran faction.
“Four Katyusha rockets exploded in the evening around the huge Taji Iraqi military base… which houses American soldiers, without causing casualties”, stated the Iraqi official, who didn’t need to be named.
