A military base in western Iraq was hit by rocket fire

Ten missiles were fired at the Iraqi military base “Ain al-Assad” in the west of the country, the INA news agency reported on Wednesday, citing a security source.

“Ten rockets landed on the territory of the Ain al-Assad base in Anbar province,” the report said.

Earlier, the agency reported with reference to the press service of the country’s security agencies that five rockets were fired at the base; as a result of the shelling, there were no casualties.

The Ain al-Assad base is located 160 kilometers north of Baghdad. In June last year, the official representative of the commander-in-Chief of the Iraqi Air Force, Yahya Rasool, said that this is the only base in the country where the military of the international anti-terrorist coalition led by the United States remains.
