On March 15 evening, a barrage of rockets targeted an military base which houses US forces north of the Iraqi capital of Baghdad. A total of seven rockets were fired at the target and at least five of them hit the Balad base.
No group has claimed responsibility for the attack so far, but the usual suspects are Iranian-backed groups that have recently carried out dozens of attacks on US forces and facilities in the country.
