One of the buildings in Erbil struck over the weekend by a missile fired by Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps was an Israeli training facility, a senior US official tells The New York Times.

The US consulate was not the target of the attack, but the IRGC does not mind that it was nearby, the official adds.
