The blast also ignited two fires, which were extinguished, US officials said.

The shelling follows a long string of attacks on US forces and their local partners in Iraq and Syria by Iran and its allied groups in the region.

Last month, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps claimed responsibility for a rocket attack on the city of Erbil that severely damaged several houses in the area and sent US soldiers to a nearby base to take cover.

No US personnel were injured in this attack.

The US has about 2,500 troops in Iraq and 900 in Syria as part of a combat mission IS.
