Multiple rockets hit Iraqi airbase, wounding two soldiers
At least five rockets target Balad airbase, north of Baghdad, which hosts US contractors and Iraqi security forces.
At least five rockets hit the Iraqi military airbase at Balad north of Baghdad, wounding two Iraqi soldiers, the Iraqi military said in a statement.
Security officials had said earlier that the Katyusha rockets had fallen on the area of the base that houses US contractors, and that no casualties had been reported.
No group immediately claimed the attack on Sunday, but armed groups that some Iraqi officials say are backed by Iran have claimed similar incidents in the past.
US officials have blamed Iranian-backed militias for regular rocket attacks aimed at US facilities in Iraq, including the US Embassy in Baghdad.
The last attack on the Balad airbase was on April 4, when at least two rockets fell in the sparsely populated surrounding area.
F-16 aircraft are stationed at the airbase and several maintenance companies are present there, employing Iraqi and foreign staff.
The attack comes few days after an explosives-laden drone targeted US-led coalition forces near a northern Iraq airport, causing a large fire and damage to a building.
The incident was the latest in a string of attacks targeting mostly US installations in Iraq in recent weeks.
