原文:

A rocket attack on Camp Taji, Iraq, that killed two U.S. troops and a British medic was likely carried out by an Iranian-backed militia, and signaled Tehran's continuing activities aimed at driving the U.S. from the region. About 18 of the 107mm Katyusha rockets struck the base in the attack.

Marine Gen. Frank McKenzie, head of U.S. Central Command, said the U.S. is still working to identify those responsible for Wednesday's attack on Camp Taji. It was most likely a Shia group supported by Iran.

U.S. and British officials have pledged a response to the attack, but gave no indication of what form it might take.

中譯:

針對美軍駐伊拉克塔吉空軍基地的火箭彈攻擊,造成2名美軍士兵及1名英國醫務人員喪生,這可能是由伊朗支持的民兵發動的攻擊,顯示德黑蘭的連續攻擊,旨在驅使美國撤離該區。約有18枚107厘米俄製卡幽沙式火箭彈對該基地進行攻擊。

美國中央司令部司令麥肯錫上將表示,美國仍在確認週三對塔吉空軍基地的攻擊是由哪個團體策動,目前以伊朗支持的什葉派團體可能性最高。

美國及英國官員均已承諾對此攻擊做出回應,但未指明將會採取何種回應方式。
