A rocket attack at a Military base of US-led Forces in Kurdish Northern Iraq has killed a Civilian contractor and wounded five others including a U.S Service member.
U.S Secretary of State, Anthony Blinken said the United States was out raged by the rocket attack in the Iraqi Kurdistan Region.
It was the most deadly attack to hit U.S –led Forces for almost a year in Iraq, where tensions have escalated between the U.S. Forces, their Iraqi and Kurdish allies on one side and Iran-aligned Militias.
A group calling itself Saraya Awliya al-Dam, claimed responsibility for the attack on the base, saying it targeted the American occupation in Iraq but provided no evidence for its claim.
