Two Americans Killed In Rocket Attack By Iranian Backed Militia In Iraq

Two Americans and one British soldier were killed after an Iranian backed milita pummeled the Camp Taji in Iraq with more than 15 rockets on Tuesday.

As The Daily Mail reports:

Two American troops and one from Britain were killed, and about a dozen people were wounded when 15 small rockets hit Iraq‘s Taji military camp north of Baghdad on Wednesday, said U.S. officials…

The officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, declined to quantify the number of troops and military contractors among the dead and wounded and noted that the information was just coming in and could change.

Army Colonel Myles Caggins, a US military spokesman in Iraq, said on Twitter that more than 15 small rockets hit Iraq’s Camp Taji base at around 7.35pm in Iraq on March 11.

Earlier on Wednesday, the Iraqi military said no casualties had been reported in the attack.

The attack has been seen by many as a serious escalation in the conflict between the US and Iran in the region, and will likely be answered by a strong US response.
