BREAKING: Rockets have been fired at Iraq's al Asad airbase, which hosts US forces, a US official told Reuters on Tuesday, speaking on condition of anonymity.


BAGHDAD/WASHINGTON — Iran fired rockets early on Wednesday at Iraq's al Asad airbase, which hosts US forces, hours after the funeral of an Iranian commander whose killing in a US drone strike has raised fears of a wider war in the Middle East.

Iranian news agency Mehr said Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps had targeted the base. Tehran has vowed retaliation for the killing of Iranian military commander Qassem Soleimani.

It was not immediately clear what the extent of damage or casualties was at the base.

US President Donald Trump has been briefed on reports of an attack on US facilities in Iraq and was monitoring the situation, White House spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said.

"We are aware of the reports of attacks on US facilities in Iraq. The president has been briefed and is monitoring the situation closely and consulting with his national security team," Grisham said in
