Iraqi officials say 5 missiles hit Iraqi base hosting U.S. troops

 

  • The officials said the Grad missiles struck inside the Ain al-Asad base in Iraq's western Anbar province and caused minor damages but no casualties.
  • The officials said the missiles hit only a few meters (yards) from where U.S. forces are stationed. 
  • The culprits were not immediately known, but the U.S. has previously accused Iran-backed Iraqi militia groups of targeting the American presence in Iraq, including the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad.
