Tampa, Florida 2021-03-03 07:08:54 –

Baghdad-Iraq’s US-led coalition states that at least 10 rockets have targeted military bases in western Iraq that house US troops.

The rocket attacked Ein Al Asad Airbase in Ambal on Wednesday at 7:20 am, according to Coalition spokesman Colonel Wayne Marotte.

It was not immediately clear if there were any casualties.

This was the first attack since the United States attacked a target of militias allied with Iran in Syria along the Iraqi border last week.

Pope Francis will also come two days before he plans to visit Iraq on a long-awaited trip, including a stopover in the cities of Baghdad, southern and northern Iraq.
