It is reported that rockets were fired at al-Taji military base on Tuesday evening, just hours after the United States launched air strikes at militia bases in West Iraq and Syria. At the moment, it is not known about the damage, destruction, casualties or injured in the attack.
In addition, according to local media, at the American Consulate in Erbil, siren sounds were heard. However, these could only be tests of a sound alert system about an attack.
Responsibility for the attack was assumed by the Corps of Guardians of the Islamic Revolution of Iran. A statement by Tehran’s state television said the rally is in response to the assassination of US General Qasim Suleimani.
