A missile landed in the vicinity of the American embassy again

Beritan Tello –

Iraqi military sources reported, after midnight on Wednesday, that a missile landed inside the heavily fortified Green Zone in the center of the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, which includes government buildings and the headquarters of foreign missions.

The sources added that he has not caused any deaths or injuries, while no one has claimed responsibility for the missile attack, until now.
The Security Media Cell stated that the missile was a Katyusha type, and that its launch was near the People’s Stadium.

The sources pointed out that the sirens sounded from the American embassy building, and witnesses reported that a loud explosion was heard in Baghdad, followed by the siren sounding.

Note that the US embassy in the Green Zone in Baghdad, several months ago, was subjected to missile attacks, which the Popular Mobilization Forces claimed responsibility for, following the killing of the former commander of the Quds Force in the Iranian Revolutionary Guard and a number of the leaders of the Popular Mobilization in a US raid last January 2020.
