The Ain al-Asad airbase, home to U.S. and other coalition troops in western Iraq, came under rocket attack on Wednesday. At least 10 rockets targeted the base located in al-Anbar province. According to Pentagon spokesman John Kirby, a U.S. contractor “suffered a cardiac episode while sheltering” and died later, but the attack did not kill or wound any U.S. service members. No group claimed responsibility for the attack.
