Four rockets hit Iraq airbase hosting US troops

A volley of rockets slammed into an Iraqi airbase north of Baghdad where U.S. forces have been based, wounding four local troops, the Iraqi military said on Sunday.

Rouhani said: "Given the importance of security of the region. we've made a decision to have more consultations and cooperation for the security of the entire region". "We're not leaving unless they pay us back for it", Trump said.

"But also the situation in terms of what we're dealing with here".

Meanwhile, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has accepted that deescalation was the only solution to resolve the crisis with America.

Some of the shells hit the runway of the Balad air base, where some USA military personnel are based. USA officials have insisted Soleimani was plotting attacks on US facilities.

But Pompeo - whose State Department often insists it can not divulge details of his calls - said he heard a different message in conversations with around 50 Iraqi leaders since the start of the month.

A similar number of Canadian special-forces soldiers have been working in Iraq as part of the USA -led anti-ISIL coalition since 2014.

The base had held a small US Air Force contingent as well as American contractors, but a majority had been evacuated following tensions between the US and Iran over the past two weeks, military sources told AFP.

Last week, Iran launched a slew of ballistic missiles on American forces at the Ayn Al-Asad Air Base and a facility in Erbil in Iraq in retaliation for a United States drone strike that killed a top Iranian general on 3 January.

No one was injured in the attacks, but the Iranian military later shot down a commercial airliner that same night that was carrying 176 people, including 57 Canadians and dozens of others who were flying to Canada. Iran has apologized and an investigation is underway.

Trump threatened that the U.S. forces will not leave unless the Iraqi government paid for the air base America has built there.

Iraqi Shia organizations "gave the opportunity" to the Iraqi government and parliament to diplomatically expel foreign forces from the country, he added. Many Iraqi parliamentarians boycotted the vote, but outgoing Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi has voiced his support for it.
