The US presence in Iraq has been targeted since the beginning of the year. A series of drone and rocket attacks targeting the United States appears to be underway.
The U.S. military says a car bomb had exploded at the Iraqi police recruiting center at Kisak, west of Mosul. The attacks took place two years after the incident.
It was not immediately clear if there were any casualties in the attack. Earlier in the day, a series of attacks targeted US troops in Iraq and Syria.
According to sources, a number of attacks have taken place this month targeting the US embassy in Iraq. The United States has blamed Iran-linked militia groups for some of the attacks.
