After Rockets Hit Baghdad Airport Base, US Says Iran Targeting Americans

On Monday four rockets of unknown origin struck an Iraqi military base near the Baghdad International Airport, also site to many US and coalition forces. This follows at least nine "increasingly sophisticated" rocket attacks on joint US-Iraq military facilities over just the past five weeks.

The Pentagon believes Iran is behind these and other attacks, CNN reports, according to several US defense official sources, who say further Iran's Shia proxies are involved in planning "new provocations against US troops and interests in the region."

Monday's major assault near the sprawling Baghdad airport appeared to target a main training center where US troops advise members of the Iraqi Counter Terrorism Service. No Americans were reported hurt; however, six Iraq security force members were injured according to official statements, with two in critical condition.
