BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:30 P.M.) – It appears that an Iraqi military base has come under attack once again, as local reports claim that the installation, which hosts U.S. troops, may have been subjected to rocket fire.

According to local reports, at least three explosions were heard at the Camp Taji military base north of Baghdad late Tuesday. The base houses both Iraqi and US forces.

reporter with Sky News Arabic said on Tuesday night that three explosions had been heard at Camp Taji, an Iraqi military installation that also houses a large number of US troops.

US forces at Taji have come under attack repeatedly this month, killing several members of the US-led coalition in Iraq. While Washington maintains the attacks were carried out by Kataib Hezbollah, a Shiite militia in Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Forces, at the direction of Iran, Tehran has denied the accusations.
