Eight rockets target Turkish military base in Iraq - report

Eight rockets targeted a Turkish military base in northern Iraq on Wednesday, two of which landed inside the base, said the Counter-Terrorism Group, a security body in Iraq's autonomous Kurdish region.

An Iraqi contractor in the base was wounded, said an Iraqi security source who declined to be identified.

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack in the early hours on the Zilkan base, which hosts Turkish troops in Ninevah province of northern Iraq.
