On May 3, the Balad Air Base in Salah al-Din province that houses Iraqi forces and US contractors was targeted by rocket attack.

Representatives of the US Defense Ministry confirmed the attack and claimed that there was no damage and no casualties. The commander of the base, Div. Gen. Sahi Abdul Ameri, said that a total of 9-10 explosions were heard, but only three self-made rockets exploded on the territory of the base.

The rockets reportedly were 107mm Katyusha rockets. Alleged photos of the rockets show that the launchers were labeled with photos of Qasem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis.

@Daniel , Well out of the dozens and dozens of rockets fired so far not one person has been “reported” as hit so perhaps out walking doesn’t appear to be a popular pastime.. As for psychological pressure .. well they are operating in a war zone so should expect the odd bang or two. If they can’t handle that then they should be back home serving burgers and before you ask … yes I have …
