Rocket attack in Iraq, kills contractor injures 4 Americans

A rocket attack at a US-led military base in the Iraqi Kurdish town of Irbil on Monday killed a non-American civilian contractor, left a US serviceman with concussion and injured five civilians, four of them Americans and a Turk. “ We are outraged by today’s rocket attack in the Iraqi Kurdish region,” US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said in a statement. This was the deadliest attack in almost a year on US-led forces in Iraq. Previous attacks were carried out by Iranian-backed local Shiite militias.
