Rocket attack injures three service personnel from US-led coalition in Iraq

Three service personnel from the US-led coalition in Iraq and two Iraqis have been injured in a rocket attack on a military base north of Baghdad.

The coalition has said the Iraqi military said more than 30 rockets were fired at Camp Taji base.This is the second attack this week on the base.

On Wednesday, rockets killed two American troops and one British soldier there.

The US responded with air strikes targeting an Iranian-backed militia.

However, Iraqi officials say that Iraqi soldiers and policemen were killed in the strikes. The Iraqi military says the latest attack on Taji must not be used by the US as a pretext for any action without Iraq’s approval.
