Two Mortar Rounds Land Near U.S. Embassy In Baghdad

Closed

Two mortar rounds landed in the perimeter of the U.S. embassy, in the Iraqi capital Baghdad, a police source said.

The attack took place before midnight, when the two rounds rocked the heavily fortified Green Zone and sirens were heard in the area, the source said.

The blasts caused no casualties, as they landed on empty area, the source said.

Iraqi militias frequently targeted the Green Zone, which houses the U.S. embassy and some of Iraq’s government offices.

The attack came amid tensions between the United States and Iran.
