(AP) — The U.S. and the Iraqi military say Katyusha rockets have struck Iraqi military bases hosting U.S. troops at Baghdad’s international airport and in the western Anbar province.

In Syria, eight rounds of indirect fire hit a base where members of the U.S.-led coalition are deployed. No damage or casualties were reported from the attacks, which began Monday, the second anniversary of a U.S. airstrike that killed a top Iranian general in Baghdad.

The attack in eastern Syria hit a base run by U.S.-backed Syrian fighters with coalition advisors. It also caused no casualties but several rounds impacted inside the base, causing minor damage.
