Sources: US Air Strike Prevents Rocket Attack on Iraqi Air Base

The US air strike prevented an attack on Ain al-Asad air base in western Iraq. Iraqi military sources reported that a rocket launcher on a small truck was ready to attack the base, but the US strike destroyed the launcher. US-led coalition officials have not commented on the strike. The US military has been attacked over 100 times in Iraq and Syria since the Israel-Hamas war began, with Iran-aligned militia groups opposing the US role.
