A total of 10 rockets struck Camp Taji, a coalition base housing U.S. troops in northern Baghdad, Iraq on Wednesday.

The rockets were identified as Katyusha rockets, and no casualties were suffered in the attack, according to an Iraqi military statement.

Three additional missiles and a launching platform were located south of Rashidiya.

Katyusha rockets are Soviet-era rockets frequently used by militia groups in Iraq.
