Arab media is reporting that rockets were launched just outside of the United States Army Base in Iraq, which hosted American and New Zealand troops, per reports. The Taji base is located just outside of Baghdad. 

Per Fox News’ Jennifer Griffin, no casualties have been recorded thus far:

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has not confirmed whether or not American forces will retreat from Iraq, per the Iraqi prime minister’s request following the Trump Administration’s capture of General Qassem Soleimani. 

“We’ve been there to perform a training mission and to help the Iraqi security forces be successful and to continue the campaign against ISIS,” Sec. Pompeo said.
