Two Americans and one Brit were reportedly killed Wednesday after a rocket assault on the Taji military base in Iraq. The base houses international forces assisting the Iraqi government in its fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

"The Coalition @CJTFOIR confirms more than 15 small rockets impacted Iraq's Camp Taji base hosting Coalition troops, March 11 at 7:35 p.m. (Iraq Time). Assessment and investigation ongoing, follow @OIRSpox & @SecMedCell for updates," Col. Myles B. Caggins III, a U.S. military spokesman for the anti-ISIS coalition tweeted.

U.S. officials have told the Associated Press that at least 10 people were wounded in the attack.

The Taji base lies around 53 miles north of Baghdad, Iraq’s capital.

The attack comes amid high tensions between the U.S. and Iran.

On Jan. 8, Iran launched a missile attack on the Ayn al-Asad airbase in western Iraq, after the U.S. assassinated Iranian commander Qasem Soleimani in an airstrike on Baghdad International Airport. The attack did not result in any casualties but left over 100 U.S. soldiers with brain injuries.

The Iraqis have urged U.S. troops to leave since the Soleimani assassination but the State Department has dismissed these calls. If the U.S. does leave Iraq, it could make it harder to keep security intact in the country if ISIS reemerges.
