Two mortars reportedly landed inside the Balad Air Base in Iraq late Thursday, reports have revealed. There are no indications of casualties presently, APA reports citing BBC.

Citing military sources, BBC correspondent Nafiseh Kohnavard revealed on Twitter that a total of five rockets landed less than a mile from the location of the base, which is located just 50 miles from Baghdad.

The latest strike comes just two days after five rockets struck the Ain al-Asad Air Base in western Iraq's Anbar province. Similar to the late Thursday launch, no casualties were reported following the attack on Ain al-Asad base.
