Iraq Base Housing American Troops Hit by New Strike, Sustaining Tensions

BAGHDAD—Rockets struck an Iraqi foundation housing American troops on Saturday, lowering any expectations of de-escalation right after U.S. strikes on an Iran-backed militia in response to the killing of two of its troops at the exact foundation this week.

At minimum twenty five rockets fell on Camp Taji early Saturday, wounding 3 U.S. services members, two of them severely, U.S. officials mentioned. Two members of the Iraqi air power command have been also gravely wounded in the strike, an Iraqi navy spokesman mentioned.
