A Katyusha rocket was fired at a US-Iraqi training base in the city of Mosul, late on Tuesday night, in the second such attack in almost 24 hours.

The rocket was fired at the Presidential Palaces Compound in the east of the city at about 11:15 p.m., where US trainees are stationed alongside Iraqi forces.

The attack is the second this week, after three Katyusha rockets were fired at the Taji joint US-Iraqi base north of Baghdad.

Iraqi Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi said: “We will not allow any actions that lead to destabilize the security of the country and we will pursue the perpetrators.” He also called for the disbanding of Hashd Al Sha’abi the Iraqi IRGC proxy. The attacks come despite US pressure on Baghdad to rein in pro-IRGC militia and other militias in Iraq .
