Shafaq News/ The Security Media Cell reported, on Thursday, that the Green Zone was bombed by three Katyusha rockets.

A statement by the cell stated, “At 200 o’clock, an outlaw group targeted the Green Zone in Baghdad with three Katyusha rockets. The first rocket landed near the headquarters of the National Security Agency, and the second in the celebrations square, while another rocket landed near the Sheikh Omar area in a residential neighborhood, which led to Damage to a citizen’s wheel. 

She added, “These actions that do not want good for this country will be confronted with force by the security services, which will follow up on the intelligence and field those who carried out these actions that endanger the lives of citizens, as well as targeting foreign diplomatic missions.”

The international coalition announced that 3 people were wounded in an attack with 14 missiles targeting the “Ain al-Assad” base in western Iraq, earlier on Wednesday.

Today’s attack is the second of its kind, as the base was attacked with 3 Katyusha rockets last Monday.

On Tuesday evening, Erbil International Airport was attacked by a booby-trapped drone, without causing any damage.

It also comes a few days after US raids were launched on Iranian-backed factions’ sites on the Syrian-Iraqi border, “in response to attacks by drones launched by those factions on Americans and American facilities in Iraq.”

About fifty attacks have targeted US interests in Iraq since the beginning of the year, including the US embassy in Baghdad and Iraqi military bases that include Americans, and the Baghdad and Erbil airports, as well as logistical convoys of the international coalition, in attacks often attributed to groups loyal to Iran.
