    Breaking: Rockets land near US embassy in Baghdad’s high-security Green Zone; no casualties

    At least two rockets have landed near the US embassy in the heavily fortified Green Zone in central Baghdad, which houses foreign embassies and some of the main Iraqi government institutions.

    Iraq’s Security Media Cell announced in a statement published on its official Twitter page that the projectiles hit within the perimeter of the Green Zone on Monday evening.

    The rockets only caused some material damage, and there was no mention of casualties.

    No group has claimed immediate responsibility for the rocket attack yet.

    A security source, speaking on condition of anonymity, told AFP that at least one rocket struck the headquarters of Iraq’s National Security Service near the US diplomatic mission.

    Others crashed into nearby residential districts, including a multi-story parking complex in Baghdad’s western neighborhood of al-Harithiya, an unnamed witness said.

    The attack comes a day after a volley of Katyusha rockets targeted the al-Balad airbase, where a US company has its headquarters, north of Baghdad.

    Security sources said at least one local contractor for Sallyport, which maintains Iraqi Air Force F-16 fighter jets at the base, was wounded in the incident.
