BAGHDAD - At least three rockets struck near Baghdad's transnational field and an conterminous military base that hostsU.S. and other coalition counsels on Friday, damaging an abandoned marketable aeroplane but causing no casualties, Iraqi officers said. 


The rockets struck in the early morning hours, and landed between the mercenary and military areas of the field, two security officers said on condition of obscurity because they weren't authorized to brief the press. Iraqi Airways, the country’s main carrier, said in a statement that the attack damaged one of its eschewal of service aeroplanes situated near the field but that operations were running typically and no detainments were anticipated. 

The attack is the rearmost in a series of rocket and drone strikes that have targeted the American presence in Iraq since the launch of the time, following the alternate anniversary of theU.S. strike that killed IranianGen. Qassim Soleimani and Iraqi host commander Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis. 


Pro-Iran Shiite coalitions in Iraq have pledged vengeance for Soleimani’s payoff and have conditioned the end of the attacks on the full exit of American colors from the country.
