The rocket landed near the airbase “Ain al-Assad” in the province of Anbar in western Iraq, local media reports.
It has not yet been possible to determine the type of missile. According to preliminary information, it was released in the direction of the base, but landed nearby, without reaching the likely target. There were no injuries as a result of the incident.
The base is located 160 kilometers north of Baghdad and remains the last, according to the official representative of the Commander-in-Chief of the Iraqi Armed Forces, Yahya Rasul, where the military of the international anti-terrorist coalition led by the United States are located.
