A rocket attack has been reported on Camp Taji, north of Baghdad, the Iraqi military said on Tuesday.

Sky News reported that a 'missile' landed near the camp's gates on Tuesday evening, wounding a member of the security forces.

Other reports suggest that several rockets had been fired at the military base.

Camp Taji or Camp Cooke as it's sometimes known, is a base that is used by US and coalition forces in Iraq.

Tensions have been high in the Middle East after the US killed top Iranian general Qassem Suleimani in a drone strike.

Iran has vowed to avenge his killing and responded by firing missiles at two US bases in Iraq a week later. There were no casualties in those attacks.

Last week, a Ukrainian International Airlines crashed, killing all 176 people on board. The Iranian military admitted over the weekend that they shot it down by mistake.
