In March, dozens of rockets were fired at Taji camp, an Iraqi base located to the north of Baghdad where the US and coalition troops are stationed. Three coalition personnel, including two US citizens and one UK national, died as a result, and 14 others were injured.

Two rockets fell inside Iraq’s Taji military base that hosts US-led coalition troops on Saturday, the state-run news agency reported, quoting a statement by the military.

No casualties have been reported.

Taji Camp, a military base located to the north of Iraqi capital Baghdad, has been stationing US and coalition troops. It has repeatedly come under rocket fire.

On 11 March, the Taji base was hit by dozens of rockets, resulting in the death of two US citizens and one UK national, as well as leaving 14 others wounded. The US blamed the attack on pro-Iran Shia Muslim groups, in particular Kataib Hezbollah.

The US forces carried out precision strikes against the group in retaliation, damaging weapons storage facilities and Karbala airport, 110 km southwest of Baghdad.

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
