Rocket attack strikes base in Iraq

At least 10 rockets struck a military base in Iraq hosting US-led coalition troops this morning. The Iraqi military noted that there were no significant losses, though it was not immediately known if there were any injuries or casualties. No group had taken responsibility for the attack as of this morning.

More context: The attack comes amid escalating tensions in the region, with Iran-backed militia forces launching a rocket attack last month and the US responding with retaliatory airstrikes in Syria last week.
