U.S airbase in Iraq hit by rockets

An airbase housing US and coalition troops in Iraq has been hit by rockets, according to US security sources.

According to the BBC, the Al-Asad base was reportedly hit by multiple rockets. It is unclear if there have been any casualties.

This incident comes after top Iranian commander Qasem Soleimani was killed in a drone strike in Baghdad on Friday, on the orders of US President Donald Trump.

Iran has threatened “severe revenge” for Soleimani’s death.
