Iran fired a series of rockets at two US-Iraqi airbases early Wednesday morning, in the first Iranian response to the killing of General Qassem Soleimani by American forces last week. The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps earlier claimed responsibility for the barrage, which the Pentagon said was launched from Iran. A total of 15 rockets were launched, 10 of which hit the Ayn al-Asad base in western Iraq and another facility in Erbil, according to two US officials. Another struck the Taji air base near Baghdad while four fell out of the sky.
