Iraq: 5 rockets launched by Iranian proxy terrorists hit US military base

BREAKING: A barrage of five rockets hit the Ain al-Assad military base which hosts US forces in western Iraq’s Anbar province.

There were no reports of damage or casualties from the rocket fire that came in on Tuesday afternoon, nor has the origin of the missiles been identified.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility.

The shelling comes just over a week after Vice President Mike Pence and his wife Karen visited the US troops there ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday. President Donald Trump had also visited the base on Christmas 2018.
