In Iraq, the airbase “Ain al-Assad” was shelled

The Ain al-Asad airbase in Anbar province in western Iraq was hit by rocket fire, no one was injured, the press service of the Iraqi security authorities said in a statement.

“Two Katyusha rockets landed in an empty courtyard at the Ain al-Assad airbase in Anbar province, there were no human casualties or material damage,” the statement said. 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 Armed Forces, 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.
