Militants Aided by Iran Fired at G.I.’s in Iraq, Officials Say

Michael S. Schmidt reports for the New York Times:

Militants trained and financed by Iran’s Quds Force attacked United States forces in Iraq on Wednesday, American officials said, continuing a role they have played in recent years in a proxy war between the United States and Iran.

The militants fired rockets at American forces at Contingency Operating Station Garry Owen in the southern province of Maysan, which borders Iran.

The military provided few other details of the attack.
