Two rockets landed at the vicinity of the Baghdad Airport that houses a headquarters for US forces, according to an Iraqi police official.

"At dawn, two rockets targeted Baghdad International Airport; where there is a headquarters for American forces in the military part of the airport," Capt. Ahmed Khalaf, a police officer, told Anadolu Agency.

Khalaf stated that "there were no deaths or material losses reported."

He said security forces have found a rocket launcher in the Al-Furat neighborhood, west of Baghdad.

This came after a similar attack targeted US forces at the airport on June 8.

On June 13, the Al-Taji military base north of Baghdad, which accommodates US forces, was also targeted.

Earlier this month, the Iraqi government pledged to protect all military bases of the US-led international coalition with expectation of departure of US troops.

Shafaq News / A security source reported early Tuesday, that two Katyusha rockets landed at Baghdad International Airport.

The two missiles landed near a camp that includes American forces and diplomats, inside the airport, without giving further details , the source told Shafaq News Agency.

For months, Iraqi military bases hosting American soldiers, as well as the American embassy in Baghdad, have been exposed to frequent missile attacks.

The attacks have surged since the assassination of the Iranian commander of   "Quds Force" Qassem Soleimani in a U.S. air raid in Baghdad in early January.
