Seeing reports popping up about multiple Katyusha rockets hitting a US base at Baghdad International right now. Some reports are over 20 rockets hit. Have not seen it in mainstream news yet though....

Source - Twitter

Hopefully the casualty's will not be to high. R.I.P to the unfortunate poor souls that perished.

I hope this isn't real! Praying for no casualties.
Good catch, if it is.

That twitter source I used is typically spot on accurate. I would not be surprised if he snagged the story before anyone else.

Saying now that the Iraqi Army has closed the road to Baghdad International Airport.

Thanks, Obama.
Sure hope the Iranians and Russians can save the day.

News search reports nobody else beat you to it.
Good Job.
Better send to Drudge ASAP.

Didn't look....was just reported with an ongoing conversation of an eyewitness ground report.

On mobile right now so can't check until later. I have no reason to doubt the twitter user though.

Good find,

this is a powder keg, and fuse is very well burning away,

hopefully not a big loss of live

That report says mortars...my source now has video up of it and it's definitely rockets.

Sounds exactly like mortars to me.

I'd bet that is what they used.

The article you posted here states 5 mortars while the video link you posted for Andy06Shake has captured 12. Either the article is wrong or purposefully understating the event or the video and article do not correlate. In any case, I hope any casualties are at a minimum.

Did you watch the video? Doesn't look like mortars to me....though I could very likely be incorrect.
