The Taji military base houses a large number of US and other foreign troops, making it the ideal target for Iran-backed militant groups.
An army captain told Anadolu Agency on condition of anonymity as he was not authorised to speak to the media, that at least two Katyusha rockets were fired at the base.
It was gathered that the missiles targeted the Ain al-Assad base in Anbar province and a facility near Erbil’s airport in northern Iraq very early this morning.
They were fired in retaliation for the killing of top Iranian commander Qassem Soleimani by the US, Iran said.
