Defense Department spokesman John Kirby added that it was too early to say who might be behind the attack.
American military and civilian specialists were not injured in the shelling of the Iraqi air base Ain al-Assad, used by the United States. This was announced on Wednesday by the press secretary of the Defense Department, John Kirby.
“There is no data on US military and civilian casualties,” he said. According to him, one local employee who worked under the contract was killed in the shelling.
Kirby added that it was too early to say who might be behind the attack. “An investigation is underway,” he said.
On Wednesday, at least ten rockets landed near the Ain al-Assad airbase used by US troops in the Anbar province of Iraq.
