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

BAGHDAD—Rockets struck an Iraqi base housing American troops on Saturday, lowering any anticipations of de-escalation following U.S. strikes on an Iran-backed militia in reaction to the killing of two of its troops at the exact base this week.

At least twenty five rockets fell on Camp Taji early Saturday, wounding three U.S. service members, two of them seriously, U.S. officials mentioned. Two members of the Iraqi air power command had been also gravely wounded in the strike, an Iraqi navy spokesman mentioned.
