An airbase housing the United States-led coalition’s forces at Baghdad International Airport comes under rocket fire. A security source alleged in remarks to AFP that one of the projectiles fired during the Sunday incident had been intercepted. Another landed inside “the military section” that surrounds the airport, Iraq’s al-Sumaria television cited a source as saying. No person or party has yet claimed responsibility for the attack, the second one of its type in a week. Various Iraqi resistance groups, however, regularly claim such incidents, pledging not to lay down their arms until the US-led coalition withdraws from their country.
