Turkish troops in the Zilkan base in Iraq’s Nineveh province, came under rocket attack, according to Kurdistan Counterterrorism Directorate (CTD).
The Kurdistan Counterterrorism Directorate, based in regional capital Erbil, said on its social media that nine rockets had been fired at the Turkish military base.
The CTD also said the rockets were fired from Mosul city and hit near the base, while another landed next to a nearby village and struck a vehicle.
The attack did not cause casualties or material damage to the base, the directorate added.
The base houses 150 Turkish soldiers and is located 10 km away from Nineveh’s Bashiqa town. It had been targeted by rockets on 22 July as well, fired by an unidentified group.
Turkish troops were deployed to the region in December 2015 under the pretext of training Iraqi and Kurdish forces in their fight against the Islamic State (ISIS).
The troops are still present in the area despite the calls of the Iraqi authorities to leave.
