Multiple rockets hit Iraq's Ain al-Asad airbase that hosts the United States, coalition and Iraqi forces. The attack happened just a few days after a rocket attack on the high-security zone in Baghdad. The Arbil airport in northern Iraq was also hit by nearly a dozen rockets and two people were killed in the attack. Iran's Al-Balad airbase, which it uses to keep most of its F-16s, was also hit by several rockets.
