A rocket landed near an Iraqi military base hosting U.S. forces in the northern city of Mosul late on Tuesday, an Iraqi military statement said, the second such incident in two days.

The statement gave no immediate reports of casualties. It said the rocket fired was a short-range Katyusha missile.Mosul’s military commander said the rocket landed in an open space causing no casualties or damage. He said it was fired from west Mosul, across the Tigris river, and was a “locally made” rocket, without elaborating.

Security sources separately told Reuters that two Katyusha rockets had landed on the base.
