Multiple rockets hit an Iraqi base housing United States and coalition troops, and an assessment of the incident is under way, said a senior official from the administration of US President Donald Trump.

“We are closely following the situation at Camp Taji,” the official said. “We are not going to get ahead of the assessment and investigation, which are ongoing.”  Earlier US media, citing official sources, said that one US soldier and one British soldier were among the three dead. They also said an US contractor was also killed. Those reports have not been confirmed.  The rocket attack was the 22nd against US military interests in the country since late October, an Iraqi military commander said.  US Army Colonel Myles Caggins, a US military spokesman in Iraq, said on Twitter more than 15 small rockets hit the base but provided no further details.
