Washington, DC - According to widespread press reports in the Middle East, the Balad Air Base, which houses U.S. personal was struck today, January 12, by multiple rockets.

The events come in the context of the Iraqi parliament passing a resolution telling the United States to remove its forces from the country, and the country’s Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi requesting the U.S. to start talks on withdrawing military forces. The Trump administration says it will not leave Iraq.

In the past, the Balad Air Base housed a U.S. facility for holding and torturing Iraqi prisoners.
