At least 10 rockets targeted a military base in Iraq that hosts U.S.-led coalition troops.

We do not know if there were any casualties. 

A U.S. military spokesperson said the "indirect fire" rockets targeted Ain al-Asad airbase in Anbar province about 100 miles west of Baghdad. The spokesperson said Iraqi forces are investigating the attack.

Last week, the U.S. carried out airstrikes on Iranian-backed targets in Syria. It was the first-known military action under the Biden administration.
