Baghdad (IP) - At least 14 rockets hit western Iraq's Ain al-Asad airbase, host to the U.S. forces, on Wednesday, at least wounding three people.

Iran PressMiddle East: U.S. Army Colonel Wayne Marotto, spokesman for the U.S.-led coalition, tweeted that the rockets landed on the base and its perimeter.

Iraqi army officials said the pace of recent attacks against U.S. bases with rockets and explosive-laden drones is unprecedented.

Iraqi military sources said a rocket launcher fixed on the back of a mini-truck was used in Wednesday's attack and was found on nearby farmland.

On Tuesday, a drone attacked Erbil airport in northern Iraq, targeting a U.S. base on the airport grounds, Kurdish security sources said.

In response to the attack on Ain al-Assad base, the US forces have reportedly targeted the "al-Baghdadi" area of Anbar, from where the missiles were allegedly fired.

The US artillery unit also targeted a mosque in the town of Heet (Hit) indiscriminately in Al-Anbar.
