Iraq Base Housing American Troops Hit by New Strike, Sustaining Tensions

BAGHDAD—Rockets struck an Iraqi base housing American troops on Saturday, lowering any anticipations of de-escalation just after U.S. strikes on an Iran-backed militia in response to the killing of two of its troops at the exact same base this 7 days.

At minimum 25 rockets fell on Camp Taji early Saturday, wounding a few U.S. service users, two of them severely, U.S. officials stated. Two users of the Iraqi air power command were being also gravely wounded in the strike, an Iraqi armed forces spokesman stated.
