Three Rockets Target Baghdad Airport

BAGHDAD: Three Katyusha-type rockets have struck a military complex near Baghdad’s international airport that is used by US troops and diplomats, Iraq’s military said without reporting casualties.

Security officials said it was not immediately clear whether a military base hosting US troops next to the airport was the target of Wednesday’s attack.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack which came hours ahead of a Parliament session that will vote on the proposed government of the latest prime minister-designate, Mustafa al-Kadhimi.
