U.S. Base In Iraq Hit By Rockets
BAGHDAD, Aug. 14 (UPI) — The U.S. military’s remaining base in Iraq came under rocket attack Sunday but there were apparently no casualties, Iraqi officials told Aswat al-Iraq.
A trio of Katyusha rockets fell on the Delta base in southern Kut, prompting a response from Iraqi police who rushed to the scene to hunt for the unknown insurgents, a Wassit security source told the news agency.
Delta is the lone U.S. base in Iraq and is due to be handed over to the Iraqi government once the withdrawal is completed at the end of the year.
There was no immediate word from the U.S. military on the reported attack.
