An area around Balad Air Base in Iraq’s northern Saladin province, where US and other foreign contracted personnel are located, has been struck by at least four Katyusha rockets.
In a statement by the government-affiliated Security Media Network said late on Thursday, “An attack was carried out with four rockets that hit the surroundings of Balad Air Base.”
No human or material damage was reported.
Responsibility for the attack has not been claimed by any group or militia.
Considered the largest military airbase in the country, Balad Air Base includes squadrons of US F-16 aircraft and houses technicians from the US to help maintain the aircraft.
