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.

Surely this isn't Iran, right?
Assuming they don't have a Deathwish, given their domestic situation they'd be unable to mount an effective or unified resistance... has to be something else at play here.
A fresh spate of rockets targeted an Iraqi base north of Baghdad on Saturday where foreign troops are deployed, Iraqi and US security sources told AFP, in a rare daytime attack.
It was the 23rd such attack since late October on installations across Iraq where US troops and diplomats are based, with the latest rounds growing deadlier.
