Iran Launch Missiles On US Troops In Fresh Attack Over Soleimani’s Killing

SOLEIMANI

Reports have emerged of another set of missiles launched at US bases in Baghdad, Iraq on Tuesday.

It was gathered that Katyusha rockets missiles were at the Taji military camp, located north of Baghdad, but no casualties were reported.

The Taji military base houses a large number of US and other foreign troops, making it the ideal target for Iran-backed militant groups.

An army captain told Anadolu Agency on condition of anonymity as he was not authorised to speak to the media, that at least two Katyusha rockets were fired at the base.

Naija News had earlier reported that more than a dozen missiles were fired by Iran at two Iraqi military bases hosting US troops.

It was gathered that the missiles targeted the Ain al-Assad base in Anbar province and a facility near Erbil’s airport in northern Iraq very early this morning.

They were fired in retaliation for the killing of top Iranian commander Qassem Soleimani by the US, Iran said.

Recall that Iran had threatened a retaliation attack on the US, following the death of Solemani.
