Katyusha rockets target Camp Taji near Baghdad

The Iraqi military says Katyusha rockets have hit an airbase north of the capital Baghdad.
In a statement, the Iraqi military noted that no casualties have been reported from Camp Taji. The airbase hosts US-led foreign troops. It is the latest strike to target installations where American forces are deployed. It comes after Iraqi lawmakers voted last week to expel all foreign forces from their country. The office of Iraq’s caretaker premier said Adel Abdul-Mahdi has also asked Washington to dispatch a delegation to Baghdad to initiate preparations for the withdrawal of American troops from the country.
