BAGHDAD- Around 15 rockets landed on Thursday near a camp next to Baghdad International Airport holding members of an exiled Iranian opposition group, joint operations command spokesman Brigadier General Yahya Rasool said.

It was not immediately clear if the Mujahideen-e-Khalq Organization, which has had a presence in Iraq since the 1980s, was intentionally targeted.

There were no immediate reports of casualties from the rockets fired from the Bakriya neighborhood, about 6 kilometers (4 miles) northeast of the airport, Rasool said.
