Two U.S. military personnel and a member of the British forces were killed on Wednesday in an attack on the Camp Taji military base near Baghdad, the capital of Iraq.
During the attack on Camp Taji, the base that houses U.S. troops in Iraqi territory, 12 other people were injured, local media reported.
"About 15 small rockets hit the base at about 7:35 p.m. local time. We are still investigating the extent of the impact," U.S. Army military spokesman in Iraq Myles Caggins posted on his official Twitter account.
So far, the United States and England have not attributed the attack to any adversary. Nor has anyone taken responsibility for the act.
