At least two rockets landed on Tuesday on the Ain al-Asad air base in western Iraq which hosts US and other international forces, but caused no casualties, the Iraqi military said in a statement.


The statement gave no further details.


The United States accuses Iran-backed militia groups of launching regular rocket attacks against its troops in Iraq. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for Tuesday's attack.
