Two rockets fell near Baghdad airport, no casualties: statement

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Two Katyusha rockets landed near the “outside perimeter” of Baghdad International Airport on Wednesday, a statement from the military said.

The statement said there were no reported damages.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility.

Wednesday’s attack came two days after four Katyusha rockets struck a base near Baghdad International Airport, wounding five members of Iraq’s elite Counter-Terrorism Service.
