Two rockets were fired at Ain al-Asad airbase in western Iraq on Tuesday. No persons are allegedly injured in the attack on the base which is guarded by Norwegian soldiers.

There are about 30 Norwegian soldiers stationed at the Ain al-Asad airbase (AAD) in Anbar province in western Iraq.

The Iraqi military said on Tuesday that two rockets were fired at the base. This is the third rocket attack in the country in the last three days.

In early March, the base was hit by ten rockets, and a civilian-employed American died during the attack. This time, the rockets hit an unused area at the Ain al-Asad base.

“No people or valuables ​​have been affected,” a spokesman from the military said.

The previous attacks on Sunday and Monday hit two other bases in the country.
