In Iraq, a British Army medic and two U.S. soldiers were killed Wednesday in a rocket attack on the Taji military base near Baghdad. Twelve other soldiers were injured. There was no immediate claim of responsibility. Iraq’s military circulated photos showing an abandoned pickup truck with a battery of rocket launchers found a few miles from the base. After a similar attack three months ago killed a U.S. contractor, President Trump ordered a drone strike on Iran’s top military commander, Qassem Soleimani, in Baghdad. The assassination brought the U.S. and Iran to the brink of war.
