Baghdad: At least three Katyusha rockets landed in Baghdad’s heavily fortified Green Zone in an attack targeting the US embassy, two Iraqi security sources said on Sunday, local time.

The Iraqi military said that an “outlaw group” fired rockets at Baghdad’s heavily fortified Green Zone on Sunday.

The rockets hit a residential complex inside the Green Zone, damaging buildings and cars but causing no casualties, a military statement said.
