Seven rockets hit army base in Iraq’s Salahudin province hosting US troops

Baghdad: Seven Katyusha rockets on Sunday hit the Balad airbase, which previously housed US troops, in Iraq’s central province of Salahudin, wounding two Iraqi soldiers, a provincial security source said.

The origin of the bombs has not been identified yet

The airbase is located some 90 km north of Baghdad. Besides the injuries, some nearby buildings were also damaged.

The origin of the bombs has not been identified yet. The site was a target of last week’s rocket attacks.

According to some military sources, some Iraqi airmen have been wounded in the attack though a majority of the US airmen stationed at airbase had already left.
