Rockets hit Iraq base with US troops; no word on casualties


By QASSIM ABDUL-ZAHRA 3 hrs ago

BAGHDAD (AP) — A barrage of Katyusha rockets targeted an Iraqi air base that houses American troops south of the city of Mosul on Friday, two security officials said. There was no immediate word of casualties from the attack.

The rocket fire appears to have originated in Mosul and struck the Iraqi army base in Qayyara, about 60 kilometers (38 miles) south of Mosul, where a U.S.-led coalition is helping Iraqi forces battle remnants of the Islamic State group.

The Iraqi officials who spoke to The Associated Press did so on condition of anonymity under regulations.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility nor was it clear if any of the rockets struck the base.

Iraq announced victory over IS two years ago, but the extremist group is still active through sleeper cells and frequently mount attacks on Iraqi security forces.

1. The SEALS and Delta Rangers are getting bored. This will give them some bad guys to Kill.

You gotta keep your skills up.

Iraq will not complain.

3. The best reason there is to go kill someone is if they are trying to kill you. Kill them first.

Don't you remember? God has a part in all this, he gets to sort them out after the fact.

4. Like Crimea?

Most katyusha Rocket strikes dont kill forces anyway

instead of a actual launcher then lean the rocket against a suitable pile of dirt aimed in the general direction of a target, set a remote/time delay initiator and scurry away to avoid counterbattery and QRF arrival at the POO
