Five rockets were fired at Iraq’s Balad airbase on Wednesday evening, with two of them falling near an area used by US contractors but without causing casualties, a security official said. “There were no victims or damage,” the official said. Balad airbase, north of Baghdad, is used by US company Sallyport to service F-16 fighter jets flown by Iraq’s air force and has repeatedly been the target of rocket fire. Another US company, Lockheed Martin, withdrew its staff from the base last month amid concerns about their safety. At least three foreign subcontractors and one Iraqi subcontractor have been wounded in attacks on Balad.
