SAMARRA, Iraq: US contractor Lockheed Martin has withdrawn its staff from an Iraq base where it had been maintaining the Iraqi army’s F-16 fighter jets, military sources said, after a spate of rocket attacks. At least five attacks have targeted the Balad airbase, where other US companies including Sallyport are also present, since the start of the year.
