A rocket hit a base in northern Iraq that hosts US forces on Thursday but caused no casualties, Iraqi security sources said.

According to three separate Iraqi security sources, the Katyusha rocket hit an open area on the K1 base at around 8:45 pm local time (1745 GMT).

No reports of casualties have been made so far.

The base is located 15 kilometers to the northwest of Kirkuk and it houses USA military forces as well as Iraqi forces from the Federal Police and Counter-Terrorism Service.

A rocket attack on K1 killed a US contractor on December 27 and led Washington to conduct an airstrike that killed top Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani and senior Iraqi militia commander Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis. In retaliation, the U.S. carried out airstrikes, killing 25 Kataeb Hezbollah militants.

Days later, another strike killed the head of Iran's elite Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Quds Force, General Qassem Soleimani and Kataib Hezbollah cofounder, Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis. Iran retaliated for Soleimani's killing with a barrage of missiles that targeted two airbases hosting American troops in Irbil and Ain al-Asad.

The troops had prior warning and none were killed, but more than 100 have since been diagnosed with traumatic brain injury.
