Two Katyusha rockets were fired into the safe Green Zone of the Iraqi capital, Baghdad. Iraq’s state news agency gave this information on Sunday morning citing security forces. Targeting Iraq’s Green Zone is also important because all government buildings including the US embassy are located here. The report said that one of the rockets was destroyed with the help of the C-RAM Defense System. While the other fell in the area in which two cars were damaged.
Three rockets were fired in July
Earlier in July, three rockets were fired at the US embassy. The army had informed about this attack. Apart from Iraq, American bases in Syria are also being targeted continuously. These attacks are carried out as a response to US air strikes on terrorist and militia targets. In March, at least 10 rockets were fired at a military airport in western Iraq where US-led coalition forces are present. Coalition and Iraqi forces gave this information.
There have already been rocket attacks
Coalition spokesman Colonel Wayne Marotto said rockets were fired at the Ain al-Assad military airport in Anbar province at 7.20 a.m. The Iraqi military said in a statement that there was no major damage in the attack and that security forces had located the launch pad used for the missiles. An Iraqi army official said on condition of anonymity that the rockets were found in the al-Baghdadi area of Anbar.
