Iranian group fires rockets on air base housing US troops in Iraq

The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) is taking responsibility for a rocket attack at an Iraqi airbase housing US troops.

According to the IRGC, it has hit US Ain al-Asad airbase in Iraq with several missiles.

There were no reports of injuries.

The IRGC has warned the US of more “crushing attacks”, according to Iran’s state-run Press TV said.

The IRGC said it will target any regional state that becomes a platform for US aggression.

The attack came less than a week after a targeted attack by the US in Iraq killed General Qassem Soleimani, who headed Iran’s elite Quds Force.
