Rockets fired on Baghdad airport

Three Katyusha rockets were fired on Baghdad International Airport without causing casualties, the ANI news agency reports.

The attack took place late on Friday night; the rockets landed outside the airport, the Iraqi Joint Operations Command's media office said in a statement.

One of the rockets hit a house in the nearby al-Jihad district neighborhood and damaged the building, the statement said.

No group has so far claimed responsibility for the attack, but the Iraqi military bases housing U.S. troops across Iraq and the U.S. embassy in the Green Zone, have been frequently targeted by mortar and rocket attacks.
