The unidentified enemy launched rocket fire at the Taji military base in Iraq, where the units of the US military contingent are located. This was reported by Al Arabia.

"Two Katyusha missiles landed in the Iraqi Taji camp, which houses the troops of the US-led coalition," the statement said.

The joint Iraqi operations team regarded the attack on the military camp as an attempt to harm Iraq.

The Iraqi military has stepped up intelligence to establish those involved in the attack.

The US and Iraqi governments announced that the United States "will continue to reduce" its military presence in Iraq "in the coming months."

In addition, the United States noted that it does not need permanent bases in Iraq.

For its part, Baghdad promised to defend the bases in which the American troops are located after the groups loyal to Iran launched a series of missile attacks from the end of last year.

Since October 2019, about 30 attacks have been committed in Iraq against the military and diplomatic interests of the United States.
