I'm not having any luck finding more news ATM - besides places I can't post from due to ATS T&C.

Still looking...

2 Americans and 1 Brit were killed when 15 Katyusha rockets landed at Taji Base in Iraq at about 7:52 pm local time today. "ISIS doesn't have this capability," I am told by a US military source. The US military is still treating the wounded right now, which number more than 11.

It's Russian, so who has Russian gear in the area? I think Iran and Afghanistan are known to have them.

That's what I was thinking - but not want to be thinking at the same time.
I sure hope it isn't.

Sounds like Iran, I dunno but if not for CV this would be very big news.

Those rockets are fired from a truck.

Ten Katyusha rockets hit US base near Baghdad


Iraq's Taji military camp north of Baghdad was targeted by Katyusha rockets on Wednesday, with no casualties reported, an Iraqi military statement said. Camp Taji, a base holding US troops, has been hit in the past by Katyusha rockets fired by Iranian-allied militias, including Kataeb Hezbollah – an Iraqi branch of the Lebanese Shiíte terrorist organization.


No organization is taking credit for the attack at the moment.

No fatalities? I thought there were 3 dead and more wounded.

There are reports of fatalities. Think that story is an hour old.

Yes I hear there are but trying to nail it down in an absolute link was tough until a couple of minutes ago.

Thank you!

It's not a small piece of equipment, it's a big truck. We will have to see where the evidence leads.

Or striking when it won't cause much outrage due to eyes on other prizes.

There’s stockpiles of weapons just laying around Iraq just takes a little knowing where to look and anyone could have them. When I was in ramadi the fire department off of MSR Michigan headed north east to MSR scorpion had a stockpile of American air to ground heat missiles just hanging out in the back. As a matter of fact they were cored out of both propellant and the actual explosive. That’s just of one of many of my experiences there and it sounds to me like it’s still the Wild West out there.
I hope the wounded recover and wish the best to the surviving families.

I wonder if President Trump's 9PM announcement from the Oval Office will address this.
Did anyone notice if he had chocolate cake for desert?

You can be sure if it wasn't for all the new developments with C-19 he would be.

Waiting to see now.

The elephant in the room
Iraqi regulars
who voted to remove the American forces who in turn refused to leave.
Your not crossing the border without government clearance in a BM-21 Grad.
