Rockets hit Iraqi base hosting United States troops

BAGHDAD: Multiple rockets on Sunday hit a base in the Iraqi capital Baghdad hosting troops from the US-led international coalition deployed in the country, security sources said. Coalition spokesman Col Myles B. Caggins said the rocket attack in Baghdad’s Green Zone caused no injuries.

“No casualties. Investigation ongoing,” Caggins tweeted without giving further details. The Iraqi security media cell said in a tweet that three of the four Katyusha rockets fired in Baghdad fell in the Green Zone, home to foreign embassies and government offices, Efe news reported. The fourth landed in the logistical support office of the government-backed Shiite militia Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) in eastern Baghdad, causing material damage to a vehicle, according to the media cell.
