An explosion has recently hit the Green Zone after a rocket had fallen near the US Embassy inside the safety zone. Sirens have sounded in the Green Zone, as smoke appeared on the horizon.
An Iraqi security source told Sputnik news that a rocket struck an area close to the US Embassy in the Green Zone of Baghdad, Iraq.
Kurdistan 24 journalist Barzan Sadiq posted footage of impact area in central Baghdad, alleging the projectile fired was a Katyusha rocket.
Some incoming reports suggest that multiple rockets may have landed in the area.
The latest development comes weeks after a rocket attack in the area on May 19 caused “minor damage to the wall of the building.” However, no casualties were reported as a result.
