Shells exploded near US air base in Iraq

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — In northern Iraq, five mortar shells exploded near the Kayyar air base, where the US military is based.

According to RIA Novosti, citing the press service of the Iraqi security agencies, no one was injured as a result of the shelling, and no material damage was caused.

The base has been used by US troops since 2003 and has already undergone rocket fire in November last year.

Incidents with shelling of US bases became more frequent after a special operation in Iraq – on January 3, an Iranian general, the commander of the Al-Quds special forces unit, Kassir Suleimani, was killed.
